Does anyone know whether there are any aftermarket gas caps for our bike? the latch mechanism has become really stiff and is bending the key when I try to open it. I've tried liquid wrench, i thought maybe some wd-40 but I didn't have any.

The problem is WD40 will drip forever after you use it. Come out on a nice warm day and a little more will sweat out of the lock.

decided that I would take the cap apart and see if I could clean and oil it, took about 5 minutes. works like new. didn't have to use any wd-40.

Here is one other solution. Mine was really tight, and I was also worried about hte key. Then I figured out that if I put some pressure on the top of the cap as I turn the key there is very little resestance. You might try that before taking anything apart.

I was gona say, I push in on the cap when I turn the key and no resistance. I've always done it that way. I guess I thought it was supposed to be that way. Seems like it was on my cop bike too...
