As far as I know, it opens the same way any other gas cap opens. Twist it in the counterclockwise direction. However, the bike may have a custom style gas cap installed on it. Evidently this is a previously owned bike that you have because I'm sure it's need fuel in it since it was first sold.

Aftermarket caps come in all types. One of the most popular are the flush fitting aircraft type caps. These open by pressing them downward and releasing the pressure quickly. The cap will jump up allowing you to take it off.

Good Luck
Steve

How to drain a 2004 sportster 1200 c gas tank


The easiest way would probably get a cheap gas siphon hose (you know, one with a hand bulb you squeeze to get the siphon started). What I do is cut a coat hanger open and stretch it straight and then cut a piece a little longer than the distance from the take cap to the very back of the tank. Stick this into the hose to keep it straight (cheap siphon hoses have a tendency to bend and curve away from the bottom, back of the tank. Stick the hose with the rod in it to the lowest part of the take and the other end into some gas container that will hold all the gas you have in the tank and start pumping the bulb of the siphon.

2001 883 runs for 15 minutes dies out


check your fuel tank vent in the gas cap. Loosen the gas cap, don't take it off and ride the bike. If it doesn't quit then, replace the cap.

Good luck

How do you open the gas cap for a harley fat bob 2008


Obviously it's not the stock gas cap. If it's a flush mount. You push it in then turn it to the left while it's pushed down. it will pop up, then you can unscrew it normally.
