HI Everyone, I'm trying to get the gas cap off my 2011 FS570 for the first time. The weird thing is the way the bike came, the gas cap is sort of turned to the right, meaning the top of the cap is not parallel with the handleb ars.... i try pressing the release button but the lock doesnt seem to want to disengage..

anyone else have this problem with a berg?

Thanks in advance,

SMWB

I had to fight once with the same problem, it wouldn't budge at all!

Just press really hard the release button and push it down in the middle while trying to open it. Really needs some serious force if it gets stuck like that.

Simple fix for the cap once you get it off is to spray some dry silicone spray on the cap sealing surface or grind the tabs off. I spray once in two months and the cap open easily without effort.
