Hey all. Another issue for me already with my 2011.
I hit around 160 miles today and figured it was time to get some new gas in the tank. I get to the station, plug my key in, turn it, and well, cant get the cap off.
I was utterly confused. I thought that I was being stupid or something (i have other bikes) figured that maybe there was something special with new bikes for safety. I open the manual while at the station and its not special, just turn to the right and pop it open.
Well it wasnt working. No matter how hard I pulled etc. In any case I was getting really really pissed off fast (as you can imagine). A quick google search on phone found that some people said it was that their key was bent or something which didnt allow it to unlock, so I thought maybe that was it.
Luckily I had enough gas to drive it home, tried the spare key, same luck.
So I listened closely and I could hear the thing unlock but I could pull it up. IN any case after getting pissed enough I pulled and jiggled it left to right as much as I could and then finally "Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh" the vapors came flying out and the cap poped open. Now it has no issues opening/closing.
Is this something that normally happens with a new bike or the versys in general? What did I do wrong? Is there something wrong with the bike? Any feedback would be helpful as I dont want to get stuck in this situation again.
