Looking for a 1.8 bar HRC radiator cap for my 2000 RC250M build.. they were used on most of the HRC team bikes from 1997 to the mid-2000's or even later so should be quite a few of them out there..

If you are unable to find one, replicate the decal and install it yourself.

I was thinking of that as a last resort.. it costs me $62 to make a quality decal.. 1 decal or 30 decals.. almost the same price.

I can get a late model (round type) HRC radiator cap for about 60 euros, so will try hard and get the real item consistent with the build.

You're getting ripped off with a price like that. If you have the design drawn up it's pennies to have them printed. Warranty seal stickers would cost me about £10 for 200.

Get on Freelancer and people will bid to copy and produce the artwork. It's a basic design, so it'll be quite cheap, and I've used the service before with good results. https://www.freelancer.com/

Mr. Happy is correct. That is too expensive. This guy does great work and is very cheap. I have used him a few times for custom decals.

I live in the NYC area so everything is much more expensive. Cost of living is much higher here. But the guy does a great job and I can pick it up down the street at the end of the day.

That was the easiest new "HRC" part I have come across.. I bought one for each of my Honda's. Who would of thought that junior needed a 1.8 bar high pressure cap on his 65cc KX like the factory boys on their 250 2Ts and 450s.

Since I am on a roll, I wonder if you guys know about the alternative uses of the HRC kill switch.. I know it had former uses on Honda low end cars in Europe and on the publically available HRC road racers some years back. Here is a picture of it. The Honda part # is; 35130-NC8-000

Naturally that is the first thing I did and have being doing that for the past 12 months for sites all over the world. The part number I am looking for isn't in the page you came up with, just pieces of the number. That model RS uses a different kill switch.

my mistske. I thought the 3rd line was the kill button. I know you must know what you are doing if you are replicating Works bikes.

no worries.. 3rd line is the kill switch but doesn't match the part number I am looking for
