Apparently its buried under the seat and a PITA to get to.
and that's a good thing! You should never pump gas while sitting on or standing over the bike. Think what would happen if there was a fire , or worse, a spill followed by a fire. You would be stuck trying to get off the bike with the fuel hose in your hand. Much better to be standing beside a bike sitting on its sidestand. If there's an accident you are free to drop everything and run.I have mixed feeling about the fuel cap. I like being able to remove it, but finding a good spot to lay it down is problematic some times. don't have to worry abut that with hinged caps, however, no more straddling the bike and refueling.
