OK, when was the last time you refuel, turn the key to release cap, push on the cap down as it may have jammed or stuck, if still doesnot work, emove key, push cap and give it a good hand whack and try with key again and at the same time push cap down, that should do it. Good enough?

My gas cap is hissing after my ride and my fuel mileage is down, are they related?

Related? May be a possibility but the hissing from the gas cap is the vapor pressure that is generated inside the tank, usually means that you have achieved vapor lock and its trying to vent. When this occurs it's usually do to faulty vapor tule or release valve and even your gas cap. If your gas cap is not functioning correctly it will not open the valve with in this cap to relieve the pressure usually about 11psi. Stop by any auto parts store and have them pressure test the cap and replace if needed..

How do you get the gas tank open 2002 Kawasaki zx ninja 600r

Should be the same as any other bike. Put the key in the gas tank and turn. Might require some fiddling, but is there not key hole in the filler cap or something?

My key is not releasing the seat on 06 kawasaki. how can i get to battery

Push in the direction that normally releases the seat (normally down) while turning the key and it will probably unlock. Sometimes the tension from the seat pushing against the lock stops it from unlocking.

I ran out of gas and now my car wont start. Tried turning the key several time and no luck

ON your fuel rail under your hood is a pressure release valve. It looks like your tire inflation valve. It may have a black cap. remove cap, turn on key, then turn off. press the valve to release the fuel pressure. do this a few time and it will bleed your system off excess air. sounds like you have a vapor lock.

I just got a kawasaki ninja 250 and the lock for the gas tank is stuck i put the key in and cant turn it at all. I tried wd-40 and pushing down the cap while trying to turn the key but nothin at all ...

Hello, you have tried all the things that would help, one other thing you can try is get a new key cut (from your existing key), what happens is the sides of the key actually wears out and this also affects the operation, its not guaranteed but it may help. Also try pushing the key in as you twist and pull it out a fraction and twist. Being a new bike this should not be happening, also after you spray the WD40 if you have access to a air compressor, blow the the key hole out, you may have to hold the hole open with a fine screw driver, there may be dirt stuck in there. If all fails than a master lock smith will be your last solution.

I tried to open the gas tank (lock) but i stick my key in (also tried the spare) but the lock would not turn. I looked up some toubleshooting and used wd40 in the lock and along the rubber seal outside but...

There is either a small piece of something keeping you from fully inserting the key , the lock is broken, or the lock has been replaced and the replacement uses a different key. On my 2009 Ex250 the key turns 1/4 turn clockwise and is very easy to turn. Worst case scenario, you may have to drill the tumblers out of the lock. Even if you undue all the top screws but the cap will not come off. There is one security screw under neath to keep the fuel thieves from just taking the top off. If you damage the cap beyond use you can always replace it with a Slingshotracing gas cap. You could take the tank to a locksmith to see if they can pick it. Hope this helps.

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.
