whats wrong with the lock? does it not turn? if thats the case , get some graphite spray. Spray it on the key and in the lock. and give it some wiggles..

if not, time for a new gas cap. You can get keyless ones for like 20-30 bucks...

and if that doesnt work, its usually like 3 or 4 allen bolts that hold on the cap..

That lock sounds like it is KIA... time to get a new one...vortex makes a keyless gas cap for 20-30 bucks, id recommend getting it.. unless you want to have two keys for your bike and gas cap...

thats what i want to do but how do i get the old one off? it is locked in, and i cant use the key to open it.. I tried to take out the allen screws but then the lock is still preventing it from coming off.

yeah if you know of a cheap one that would be good, it cost me $100 yesterday to have the guy come to me at the gas station and make me a new key, and the only vortex keyless gas base and keys i see are like $80-$120 so, cheap would be amazing!
