Exclamation I Need Some Help W/ My Gas Tank - April 24, 2008, 09:35 AM

The other week I had just finished washing up my bike and decided to ride to school and what not. On my way home, my fuel light came lit up on my kawi 636, so I pulled into the gas station just to find out that my gas tank lock wouldn't unlock nor budge. I at least had enough gas to get back home and call coleman's and they told me that it's most likely the locking mechanism that decided to bust up on me. Other than calling a locksmith and spending around another few $$$ for them and a new gas cap, anyone know what I can do to either pick the lock or fix this situation? Has this happened to anyone else?

and you will never have a key-not-working-in-my-gascap problem again.

I guarantee it. Probably cheaper than a new cap with another key from stolemans anyway. All you need is a allen wrench to install.

on the internet you can be anyone you want, it's strange that so many people choose to be so stupid

Sure your vent hose is just not pinched, and there is a vaccuum in there that you just cant break? Probably wouldn't be the problem if you rode to the gas station, but it still could be.
