Fuel tank door latch is sticking
I did several searches and didn't find this topic only topics about the tang breaking or gettng stuck in the latch. My latch is sticking in the "open" position such that the door tang won't engage. I can "reset" the latch by pushing on the little button beside the latch towards the inside of the bike and thus make the other part pop up into position. Has anyone else had this problem? Is this a sign of impending failure or just a need for lubrication?
When I got home I hit it with a shot of spray silicone and that seems to have helped, so maybe it just had some dust and dirt in it.
