Driven Racing Halo gas cap

I had a very hard time finding a pic of this gas cap fitted to a 821/939. I liked the look of the assembly itsself so I bought it. Now I'm sharing to make it easier to find a pic of the Driven Racing Halo gas cap mounted to the hypermotard 821 939.

A few things to note about this cap. The base gasket that comes with it is too thick. So thick that it lifts the base up to a point where the body lines dont line up. After paying around with different thickness gasket materials(cutting my own from sheets of cork gasket) I found that the best solution is to use the gasket that comes with on the OEM gas cap. That creates a tight seal and left the base sit where it should. Looks great. Next issue, the o-ring on the cap itsself I dont believe is ment for gas applications as it has swollen to a point where it no longer can be pushed back into the groove. You basically lay the o-ring on the base and hope it lines up when you set it on top. So far it has. This is quite a hassle especially since this gas cap is intended to make fueling quicker. Having to fuss with the o-ring negates everything(but, to be fair I only got it for the look). I will buy an o-ring that I know is ment for gas applications and try to adhere it to the cap but for a $150ish system I really shouldn't have to go through all this trouble.

Non-locking is too risky where I live. I wouldn't mind a traditional flip-to-fill, but don't hate the stock cap.
