Has anyone found some sort of different piece to put in there that stays put and isn't a piece of crap? I keep bending the plastic tabs out a bit ( I never use the plug) and everytime I wipe down the tank this thing falls out. Super annoying.

My idea is to put an o ring on it but I don't have the proper size here.

I still use mine on My 12 but if I didn't I would do what @Ike Burns did and put a garage door opener there.
That is if I had a garage door to open. 😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣!!!!!!!!

The fire missile thingy is creative. I wonder how many times it gets stolen :unsure:

Great use of the cigarette lighter spot. Mind sharing what you did to get that button there

Simple hookup. Solder 2 wires to your door remote, there are videos on youtube how to do this. Buy a 22mm button like this MGI SpeedWare Black Aluminum Push Button Switch 22mm with Socket, 3A 12vDC Ring LED (Momentary, Red): Amazon.ca: Automotive there are others that would work too but it has to be 7/8" or 22mm to fit the existing hole. and this is how my remote fit.

Saw one on eBay that said "EJECT"

Heat shrink around the inserted part did the trick for me. Just enough resistance to stay put.

I used a heat gun to soften the tabs prior to bending out. Retains the new position better when cooled, rather than just bending out.

i put a blue "NITROUS" plug in mine.

sorry, no pic of it on the bike, but it garners lots of laughs as it's easily seen against my Mirage Orange Pearl.

Beware. I was reading up on the negative reviews of some of the sellers on Amazon. A few have experienced little fires from these shorting out. A $12.00 investment might cost you more. Some also don't fit perfectly...
