Cant fit oil cap back on properly

Have just bought a Harley Davidson XL 1200 Sportster low and having checked the oil level, I can't fit the oil cap back on properly. It should fit in line with the body of the oil sump, but cant quite get it back in properly. Help

Those are tricky but all it takes is to push the cap down and screww it in, then firmly grasp the cap and turn it till it lines up flush to where its supposed to sit.

I just found that after screwing it in (only goes in one way) I pushed down extra firmly with my thumb and the cap moved clockwise about 1/4 inch like it needed to be locked in better, then I could turn it a little more to make it flush.
