Oil Filler Plugs:
LC Fabrications vs Joker Machine vs Triumph

I received a couple different oil filler plugs (or caps, if you’d like), so I thought I’d compare them. The stock Triumph oil filler plug: The first contender, the LC Fabrications oil cap: And the second, the Joker Machine oil filler plug: Both are aluminum, very well machined and come with O-ring.
