Maybe not a grail of any sort, but..... A few caveats: IF you have not yet 
had the surge tank neck replaced (I had mine done in the late '80s), and
IF you haven't gone full-bling for aftermarket tanks, then yes- it apprears 
this cap will work. 
Also, 0.9 bar is 13 lbs; I prefer a 16-lb cap, myself.
Remember to check any stock tank-neck-bottom for smoothness against that 
high priced cap gasket.   Good luck- J Deryke
