Yamaha V-Star 1100 Gas Cap is Stuck

The key in the gas cap on my bike will not turn. The cap seems to have some movement but the locking mechanism seems to be stuck in place. The key will not turn independent of the entire cap.
Any advice?

My 2004 Yamaha V-Star Silverado 1100's fuel cap fell apart and now after spending a ton of money at the dealer for one it seems that tank is vapor locking after riding for a while. It will **** and...

Did you happen to get resolution on this? My gas cap on my 04 1100 classic just fell apart this weekend. It looks like there might be some screws that rattled out and now I'm concerned that I have parts loose in the tank. I didn't spend the $$$ on a new cap yet as I was looking for options. Just doesn't seem right for a cap to just fall apart.

Gas cap... when you put the key in the gas cap, the key turns but it doesn't move the peg thingy that moves to open it. How should I get it off?

Try Pushing down on the gas cap the same time you turn the key. If that doesn't work then you will have to try and get the key tumbler out of the cap to get to the locking mechanism and take the cap off. Once you do this you will have to get a new gas cap.

Were there any recalls on gas cap on the 2001 V Star 650 The lock mechanism fll apart

No, there are not. I reviewed Yamaha's complete list of Service Bulletins, which includes recalls, and there is not any bulletin addressing the issue your bike has. I have heard of it before, where the screws fall out and the lock mechanism falls off, but I have not seen a bulletin on that subject.
The good news would be, at least they fell into the tank where you can get them out and reassemble your cap. It would be a good idea to mentally note the screws that hold the mechanism together from now on anytime you gas the bike up.

Gas cap v star 650

best bet would be to get a new one also remembering how much the dealers charge for there products i would go aftermarket threw partsunlimited, cruiser, or Tucker rocky but the dealer still has to order it for you, all have great quality products at cheaper prices than O.E.M replacements unless your still under warranty.

2003 yamaha v-star 1100 gas cap assembly instructions. The screws fell out of my gas cap and the gas cap fell apart. I need to be sure that I have all the parts out of my gas tank. I need a gas cap...

You are probably not going to find assembly instructions. If you can't find all the parts or screws then get another cap. Google " motorcycle salvage yamaha " and you can probably find one at a much lower cost than the dealer would give. By the way, forget any loose screws in the gas tank. The stuff can not get past the fuel valve and filter and are not going to hurt anything.

Please rate this answer. Thanks!
