Seems mine has shrunken all up from letting the poor bike sit a while. Anyone know how to stretch it back out so I can get the gas cap back on or where I can get a replacement/

disregard this post. filled the tank with fuel, left the cap in the hole with the latch not twisted for a day, rubber softened up and can twist/latch the cap again. Guess all it needed was some fumes and heat to soften back up.

S1, I got a new o-ring for my cap. The issue was the rubber insert. After partially filling the tank with gas and sitting the cap back on and not locking (because the rubber wouldn't let me), everything loosened up with the vapors and all is good now.
