Gas cap vs Tuff Jug

Hey guys, I'm really looking for an aftermarket gas cap that has a large opening, specifically for one of those Tuff Jug ripper caps. The nozzel is 36mm /1.4in wide and needs to be fully inserted so that the auto-stop feature works. I've been using the small tank adapter for it because my current ducati one is small but it kind of sucks because I have to keep looking to check the level and it splashes back due to the small opening. Looking all over and I can't find any specifications on the diameter of these aftermarket cap openings. Anyone know of one that is at least 36mm wide that fits a panigale tank?

Tuff jug makes an adapter for $7.

Yea, like I was saying, been using it but not a fan. Doesn't auto-stop and has a bit of splash back...

Wound up finding a Bonamici cap from MotoD. Apparently it should be big enough, bought one, will follow up for anyone who might be interested.

Gas cap vs Tuff Jug

Ok, so the bonamici cap does the trick! It's wide enough, nothing special design wise and doesn't feel like great quality but..it's wide enough.
On the flip side, I'm now selling my Ducati billet gas cap for anyone who's interested. It's in perfect condition.
