I still can't get the damn key out of the fuel door! Any ideas???

  1. According to your owner's manual, the key can only be removed in the locked position. Does that help?

  2. Maybe. I'll see what I can do... This is a royal pain in the ass...

  3. You will triumph. Here's a video of a guy closing the gas cap.

  4. Failing that, would recommend contacting the dealer before getting too creative with pliers or herb shears.

  5. Your video did the trick, dude! Thanks! I noticed that he shut it, turned the key to the left and then took it out. I was turning it left, then back to center to remove it and it didn't come out. Thanks you, thank you. I owe you one. I'll buy you some WD-40 to spray on your clutch plates...

  6. Not necessary. Getting that bike on the road before the snow comes is all the thanks I need. You owe me a picture of it on a leave strewn stretch of pavement.
