Honda and Kawasaki bleeder screw caps have a built-in loop that fits under the screw's hex. They are basically tethered to the bleeder screw when you take off the cap for bleeding.
If your bleeder screw takes an 8mm wrench, get a Honda Cap 45108-425-003
If your bleeder screw takes a 10mm wrench, get a Kawasaki cap 43057

Isn't the cap that came with the bike originally tethered too?

Not necessarily. My Honda '81 CB750 and '00 Kawqasaki ZRX1100 both have tethered caps. My '14 Vstrom1000 caps arent tethered, neither were the caps on a '15 Yamaha FJ-09 I did a brake fluid flush on 2 days ago.

I was pretty sure it was on my 2018 and after looking at this photo it is tethered. I tried to find a cap that will clip like a grease gun, but so far nothing.

BH, my mistake. A quick trip out to the garage, and my Vstrom does indeed have a tethered clutch bleeder screw cap. My brake caliper bleeder screw caps arent tethered.
The only only way i can think of that the caps are coming off is if youre inadvertently brushing you pant leg against it while getting on/off the bike or riding.
Here's the part number and (MR Cycle) price: 59122-46-H00 $3.10
Incidentally, a clutch slave cylinder cap for a '10-'13 Mazdaspeed3 will fit, is orange, is thick, and not at all easy to get off the bleeder screw. It's not a tethered cap, but they never come off easily.
Again, sorry for my mistake.

Buy a few of them. Not sure if these will fit, but for the price it may be worth a shot.

hehe no worries, I was wondering if I had dreamed of it being that way and had to google it.

I might just use a small rubber hose that is blocked on one end and run it high enough that I can zip tie it somewhere so I don't lose it. CA glue is also another option lol
