You gotta be more careful.

Frequently "factory fresh" bikes have gas caps that become slightly siezed due to the new plastic and recently pressed metal. Get a propane torch. Gently warm the gas cap with the torch, using a circular motion. At some point the gas cap is sure to come off the tank.

Or. call the dealer in the morning.
Some people might actually do it.

Martimus! Ken is joking. DO NOT take a gas torch anywhere near your gas tank. Trust me on this.

All he has to do...

I'm sure the glib comments are due to the fact that someone in this day and age is having trouble with a gas cap. I'm no engineer, but if you can't make one of those work right, the rest of the machine might be suspect. Of course, Triumph will fix in in 20 or 30 years.
... is replace that crummy British gas cap with the original French Gas Capaeu that it was copied from.
