probably no biggie-
but everytime i ride ,that little yellow lube cap is popped off,sometimes with a tiny bit of oil around it.....anyone else experience this??

Take it off. I used a thread protector cap from like ace hardware and slipped it over the barb on the throttle body.

Do any of you guys actually use this to lube the throttle body?
I have actually just taken the yellow cap off and put it on the nipple on the throttle body.

Whats a throttle body? Lol... Seriously though, lube them... The 06 and older ones have a steel throttle shaft and screws and love to rust, seen some nasty ones, the 07 and up have a shaft and screws with a lot of brass in it and fare much better, but still need lubed..
