you cant

I take that back, if you have tiny hands you can reach in and release the catch from the bottom but the hole is about 2" diameter

you are probably going to have to drill out the lock unless the guy that sold it to you has the key code allowing you to burn a copy of the key at a shop down the street from colemans

you have to open it to take it off

it sounds like you bought a stolen tank

try and get the key code for the bike from the previous owner

Sure. It's not that hard. I usually start with a good step bit and in around 5 minutes your in. The only down side is that sometimes there are metal shavings that make there way into the tank but if its dry you can blow them out. Just pm me if you want help.

Or you can just sell it to me since I'm looking for an 03 R6 tank.

Not necessarily - auction bikes often dont come with keys and they are perfectly legit.

They can be drilled out and replaced with a keyless cap. Or, you can call a locksmith to have a key made, but you will be looking at 75-125 bucks unless you take it to them.
