SUZUKI SPORT (round logo) oil filler cap, metal/alloy - these are a billet alloy


Photos below.
The thread fits all MK2 and 3 Swift GTis and NEW SWIFTS, and BALENOS. They are billet alloy 6061. It may fit other Suzukis, I am yet to find out - I know so far that it does not fit G13BA engines (standard old Swift/Cino/Barina).
They include a large rubber washer.

SUZUKI SPORT badge is a sticker that you can stick on once you screw the cap in so the writing is the way you want it - it looks good even though it's a sticker - the photos show the stickers just sitting loosely on top with some of the adhesive flakes etc showing - this all goes away and looks awesome once it's stuck on - OR you can leave it off altogether if you like the plain look.

i take it they have an o-ring seal under the cap. Is the o-ring captive in the design or can it be changed. I am keen as for a blue 1. PM me for account details.

Oh sorry I didn't see this - um, well, I can take a pic of a red one on MY car but that doesn't look good, I've tried already - reason it doesn't look good is my rocker cover is anodised red, slightly different shade to this and it just doesn't go well with similar but not the same colours.

I'll take one of it on my MK2 which has a dodgy peeling and cracking original blue paint on it.

OK a few 'in action' pics.
The last blue one is now sold but I can POSSIBLY get more of all colours depending on interest, so I've included a pic of the blue one - even though it doesn't go well with the navy rocker cover, I reckon it's possibly the best looking one if your cover was black, white, stripped back silver, lighter blue or red, would look sweet. Register your interest for more of any of these colours and I'll see how we go.

Red on stock GTi cover (ignore the bad paint :wink: )
2 red ones left, or if GTi-095 takes one then 1 left.

And a silver one on a red rocker cover - silver ones great if you've got a striking coloured cover like this. But also goes with anything, could also be painted if you knew what you were doing. ONLY ONE SILVER LEFT.

All except the RED ones are sold pending payment.

Also got the first request of one that I don't have any so still DO let me know if you're after one so I can start enquiring into getting a few more.
There were some issues with declaring for duty's sake etc on these last time, I don't think it's anything to do with these in particular, I think it was just my unlucky day, but yeah I'm going to take steps to see these don't get held up this time.

Eyy? :-s

Not suggesting you wouldn't know this - but you did peel the back off, right? Cos mine has been on there for a while and never lifted at all, and the GTi cap gets hotter than on a new Swift cos of it's location.
I gave one of these a try on the new Swift today though, and I agree with you, cos of where they are, it does look cool with no sticker. Only just fits in the little cut out though, at first I thought I'd screwed you round and then saw that it fits fine, just snug.

Hey so is your sticker in tact or not? Cos there was one guy wanting an extra sticker which I couldn't do.

haha yea i took the thing off the back on the sticky part. it seem to stick ok was on there for a day and looked today and it was gone i was like OMG lol. its all good though, dunno why it didnt stay stuck down but still looks good. i agree they only just fit in its location, i love it :)

btw i may be able to rescue the sticker, it looks like it has fallen down underneath the radiator as there is a little lip section and im sure i can see the corner of the sticker lol

OK.

It might not be salvagable but if it, I reckon the guy who PMed me about more than 1 sticker might be keen to give you like $3-4 for it and you could just put it in a 60c envelope, totally up to you guys though.

Glad you like your cap :wink:

UPDATE:

Would people be interested in other colours if I could get them?
I'm looking into it right now, all sorts of combos (colours AND styles) may be available so bear with me. Also, I don't know if I can even GET them yet but if I can, could be looking at a bit of a price premium on the 'premium' colours - possibly $55 or so, but I'll only be getting them if they look fantastic.

Colours available could be: (all of these anodised)
- Gold (not sure of the exact shade yet, the more 'real' looking one is a bit pale, more like a gold ring than a painted gold look, but then there is like a more intense gold, doesn't seem to look as real though)
- Gunmetal - this is just plain awesome
- Purple (violet, hopefully)
- A darker red (the current one, pictured, is just the slightest bit 'pink', the ones I'm hoping to get, are the colour of my rocker cover, properly dark rich red)
- A darker blue (sort of azure grey/navy)

OK so some of these won't necessarily be in this standard 7 spoke design. Personally I prefer this design over any other, so I'll do my best, but if I can only get some colours in certain designs, I'll put up pics of what that design is, it'll most likely be the sort of hexagon inside the diameter type design.

The other thing is - pretty sure I can have them in this SUZUKI SPORT badge as pictured - but people might prefer something else, for example 'turbocharged' with a little picture of a turbo, is one that may be a possibility.

I'll be back with updates but in the mean time people can throw me their thoughts.

OK it's looking good guys for exactly the same 7 spoke design cap but in gunmetal, black and gold - if people want them.
I probably wouldn't bother taking particular numbers, though obviously gunmetal and silver are popular so I'd get a few of them, but I'm looking into getting a batch and I'd probably just get 1 or 2 of each colour and then a handful each of gunmetal and silver. Before I do this, if you think you might be keen but will want to see a photo or whatever, do please say because if it turns out 10 people want gunmetal and don't say anything and I get 4, then... fail.

Oh, and no word on price yet - it's a slow process when the guy I'm enquiring with will answer one question per email and one email per day. :roll:

Justin would you want the SUZUKI SPORT logo or a little 'turbocharged' one with a picture of a turbo? Thought you might like that since you're car is just a turbo with wheels. :D

Yeah definitely getting some more plain silvers, just a matter of time.

No worries Mick - sorry to have to just hand over the cap and be off, glad you like it though, thanks for stopping by.

Update to the first post guys - now taking 'orders' for silver, gunmetal, gold, black, blue and red. :D
Will be placing the order tonight and finalising and paying by Tuesday night so make it snappy. :wink: I will have a few spare of a few colours but I'm not going to order 5 I don't need so when the popular colours are gone, they're gone.

OK guys thanks for your help, order is placed.

I got the amount of each colour that I think there will be a demand for - so don't think that now the order is placed you can't get one, I will most likely have one for you. :wink:

I haven't received them yet so all I can do is show you my supplier's picture but I don't know how much it looks like this in real life, and also there is no colour to compare it to etc - although his photos of blue, red and silver are fairly realistic. When I receive them I'll take my own and give you some reference point, like maybe take one of it in the engine bay etc.

For now there's this:

I'm hoping it'll look pretty good - there's a reason I went to all the effort to find it in gunmetal when it wasn't readily available. I actually think gold might have a few people interested too when that comes.

Now I found it! I'll let you know what one I want after I paint the rocker cover...... Can you get them in green? Otherwise I'll go silver (or black).

Hmmm, green is probably the one colour they'll be hardest to get - certainly haven't come across any in this pattern. There may be a Mugen (Honda's 'Sport' company) one but it will be in the sort of above-ground swimming pool shaped ones, that have a big flat plate and then a sort of fence around that plate, like the fence of a pool. I think I've seen them in green, and to my knowledge Honda uses the same thread but I don't know either of those things for sure.

But sure, paint the rocker cover and see what I have by then. I was going to paint that cover, I had the paint stripper and some blue engine enamel but I never got round to it.

All paid for orders have been sent out today, PMs sent and once again, apologies for the delay for those who paid earlier in the week.

There are 3 silvers on the list that have not replied to PMs since the caps came in - I'll give it a few more days and try another PM but after that I'll be cancelling any reservations made in order to pass on those caps to other people who have PMed me since - so if you're one of the people without an asterisk under silver in the original post, please respond if you're still interested.

Remaining is:
1 gunmetal
2 gold
2 blue
2 black


I actually think people might consider gold if they saw it on a cover - I didn't think I'd like it, but I had a quick check and it looks nice, which is good cos it might end up that I have one or two to keep. 8)
