fuel cap removal

I lost the key to my 03 DL1000, but I have a complete lock set/ignition switch that I can fit. The only problem is how to get the old fuel cap off without a key and without damaging the tank. Any suggestions?

There is this way: https://www.youtube.com/embed/qxizCQ...l=0&autoplay=1

But I was impressed with this guy: https://www.youtube.com/embed/3C0spX...l=0&autoplay=1

I have even seen drills used to destroy the internal works. Just removing the outer ring does not work as the two internal tabs expand to lock against the inside edge of the tank.

A good locksmith can definitely get it open without damaging anything.

You wouldnt believe it but a few minutes after posting I found the key, so no need to attack the cap.
