96 DR350SE Stuck Gas Cap

Recommended Posts

Restoring an old DR and tank has old gas in it. Put key in cap and try to turn and nothing in either direction. Can't get cap off and have tried penetrating fluid for the past week to no avail. Ideas? :D

How do I go about draining the gas? I turn the petcock to on and nothing comes out and there is most definitely gas in there. Does the other breather line to carb have to have vacuum applied to it? Should I just pull petcock?

Ok this worked for me on one of my parts bikes but not on another that was really rusty. The problem is there's rust around the lip where the two fingers go down in the slots and wedge to seal. I wiggled the cap back and worth a lot to wear down the rust and then turned the key gently until it opened.
