    Go to a battery shop or powersports store, and ask them for a cap from one of their old batteries.

    Remember there will be some sulfuric acid on the cap, so put it in a plastic bag, not your pocket.

    Tip: Next time you are shopping for a battery, buy a factory sealed AGM type battery. No caps, no vent, no leaks - a better battery all around.

    Same thing happened to me - for a quick fix, I went to the local hardware and bought 3 or 4 cork stoppers (guessing at the correct size). It was really cheap.
    One fit perfect and stayed in the battery for 6 months before it went to the dealer for the annual oil change and the mechanic put a new one in.

    Now I keep 1 or 2 w/me JIC.

    Same here and I was able to get 2 from a battery core.
