There have been at least three oil filter caps

The KLR has used at least three different oil filter caps.

The first one, 11012-1538, was common to these machines:
'84 - '86 KLR600
'85 - '05 KLR250
'87 - '12 KLR650
'87 - '96 Mojave 250

The second one, 11012-1695, was common to these machines:
'90 - '91 Tengai
'90 - '97 KLR650
'97 - '04 Mojave 250

The second one, 11065-0167, was common to these machines:
'08 - '10 KLR650

There's a lot of crossover in the three parts. Does anyone have access to two or more of these part numbers who can compare them to see if there's any difference? I believe they would all be functionally the same, but perhaps cosmetically different. Or maybe it's just a parts fiche part number anomaly.

I have not had a chance to make a measured comparison to the stock cap on my '09, but I can say that the 11012-1538 has no visual differences other than this cap is painted high-speed-racing-black.

This one was sold as having come from a '93 Mojave 250 and cost a mere $11.

With the prices for KLR650 stuff seemingly going up (current e-bay listings are $30 - $45 for a filter cap), looking at identical parts from models with lesser demand can result in a bargain.

I'm going to modify this one to take oil pressure readings at the filter outlet.

A couple of interesting differences.

The oil passages on the 2009 cap are actually tapered holes that are .272" dia. at the perimeter of the cap, tapering to .235 dia. The Mojave cap has straight .235" dia. holes.

The 2009 cap has a counterbore at the oil passages that is .423" dia., whereas the Mojave cap is about .39" and as-cast.
