I don't know about everyone else, but the cap on my 2015 is a bit of a pain. The hinged cover is in the way, on top of that, i always have to place the cap on top of the dirty gas pump. Has anyone tried to adapt fords capless filler assembly?

Is the 2015 tank lid different than previous years? I've never had a problem with the fuel door obstructing a fill-up. I've never concerned myself with having to set the cap on top of the pump... just never been an inconvenience or caused a problem.
Certainly nothing worthy of a modification, at least for me.

I got used to it pretty quick. The Road King had no hinged lid, so that's a little more open and easier to get to, but not a big deal anymore on RGS. As far as the cap is concerned, I've always laid the cap upside down on a glove on the seat.

Some of you guys must be senile. ;-)
How do you forget to put the cap back on since you have to hang up the pump & close the lid? Do you also forget to pull your card back out to authorize the purchase.

Just kidding...

To answer your original question I have not seen a capless filler assembly for the road glide. But I like the idea. The cover and the cap are a pita.

I just make sure my man-servant has the tank completely filled before I leave the house so I don't have to worry about it!

I always fill my bike still sitting in the seat, put the cap on the pump slide the card and fill. I don't see a lot of guys sitting and filling. I always laugh because I'm the first to pull away from the pump. No need to dismount.

I usually just put mine on top of the fairing behind the windshield.
Ditto for me. Couple of years ago I stopped for gas and discovered my screw on cap was missing when I opened the fuel door. Damn! But...., I was filling up where I last filled up about a week ago. Went inside and asked the clerk if anyone had turned in a gas cap and he reached under the counter to get my cap and handed it to me. I no longer sit the gas cap on the pump.
