I recently "upgraded" from a gen1 K7 DL650A to a gen2 L4 DL650A and have been pretty happy with the new bike. However, one issue that I had to fix immediately was the gas cap falling closed when I was filling the tank . I usually fill up with the bike on the center stand and the cap would fall closed if you just breathed on it. I pulled the gas cap and inspected it and found a ridge behind the hinge that was preventing the cap from opening enough to stay opened.



I used a dremel tool to grind off the ridge behind that black hinge (circled in red) so that when the cap was flipped open it would stay open. I was unable to remove that retaining pin (circled in black) to remove the hinge but if anyone knows how to remove that pin it would have been a much easier job.
