Any recommendations for a paint saver ring for the gas cap on a 2001 FLSTSI. Last time I filled the bike before winter set in, I was trying to top it up as much as possible for storage and I had gas blow back from the pump nozzle when I let it fill too far. When I frantically pulled the nozzle out I almost chipped the paint on the edge. Thought this year, I'd get some cheap insurance in the form of a paint saver ring.

My local dealer doesn't like them - says that if they aren't installed perfectly, instead of protecting the gas tank, they will make things worse because they will trap gas and fumes against the paint, eventually causing it to peel and start to corrode behind the ring.

Anyone with direct experience with these? What types would you recommend?
