Just bought this bike and I can't get the gas cap off. I lifted the lever and turned it 90 degrees and then rotated the cap 90 degrees, but it won't come out. What am I doing wrong??? :dunno:

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks,

--Charlie

you can rotate the cap? Lift the lever, turn it and lift the cap (w/o rotating it)

wait I'm wrong. You have a 907IE. That cap is different compared to the P750 & 906 as it has a hinge (or is that only on later models?!). You should just have to turn the key. Maybe you'll have to press the cap down a little when turning the key.

There is no key required - no keyhole in this cap.

On the P750 it's as I said. Lift lever, turn 90° counterclockwise, lift off cap. There's no way it can rotate. I guess this is the one you have (w/o the lock)

It doesn't come off. There must be something wrong. Thanks for the input.

worst case remove the eight bolts and have a look at the bottom side.

I figured it out - I removed the whole assembly and found out that the cap has to be removed at a perfectly vertical angle in order to come out. thanks again for your input!

yeah, my 907 had the same issue. the inside stamping was made at very tight tolerance to the gas cap and a sharp edge. I took the assembly off the tank and dressed some of the edges with a file to allow easier removal. Insertion was fine. Removal is now easier.
