    how to clean oil cap?

    My oil cap is hard to unscrew because it's got oil sludge around the opening that makes it stick. Anyone have a suggestion for the best way to clean it.

    x2 and then if you wanted to just use a rag and clean it out! maybe some gas to loosen anything up...

    Or brake cleaner, degreaser, etc...a stiff brush always works good

    Look inside the cap. Is there a rubber gasket? Sometimes it either gets lost, or gets compressed to the point where it squishes down.

    Probably not. Those little ridges to remove the cap aren't very useful once it sticks in place.

    that was useful.

    No, it's not a joke. My oil cap is a SOB to unscrew and I was curious as to what other people were using to clean theirs.

    ya, the oil cap on my GPR is the same, and it's so difficult to unscrew, sometimes I'll get it around a bunch of times and my fingers will hurt like hell and I'll let go for a second and the damn thing rewinds itself...

    (I've got a block off kit in the mail)
