Team, I have my gas cap off while I have been painting my tank. Unfortunately I am now not able to get the key out of the cap when I try and put it back on the tank. The Good news is that the key is a copy of the original.
I have repainted the bike and it is time to reassemble and I had scuffed up the cap so that it would accept the paint. Since I cannot get the cap to go on it is time to get a new one.
You can find plenty of caps on Amazon and other places but I might as well try and get a black cap with on an after market product.
Any suggestions?

Thank you,

The cap has to be pushed down really hard in order to release the key. Unless you painted the cap with the key in it, the key should come out. A few drops of penetrating fluid would help lubricate/release the key when and if you can turn it.
