GAS CAP PROBLEMS! Dammit....
Ok, friends... in need of some:
2008 kawi zx6r, went to fill her up at the gas station today and the key won't open up the lock. With fuel light on, made it home and tried everything I could think of; twisting, pulling, lubing(wd40), flipping key, wiggling key, key-fucking the lock, hitting the key (with my hand) into the lock, and I even tried taking the allen bolts out, but as you all probably already knew you can't take the assembly off with out it being unlocked. I'm so pissed about this...its such a small stupid problem, yet it fucks the whole bike over since you can't get gas in it. All they had to do was was make some sort of button that only works when the key is in the ignition but not started....this problem could be totally avoidable. But anyways, to me it feels like there is something physically obstructing the key from getting down into the lock, I'd say the last 1/16" or less.... It's ridiculous.
Any help would be appreciated.
