    Default 2017 KTM 150 XC-W gas cap

    Have to use pliers to get it off.
    Is there a different cap that works?

    Is that the infamous 1/4 turn cap that locks? When it first came out there was a long thread about people cutting the locking tabs off so that it was easier to remove.

    There is no need to cut the tabs off of the '17 gas cap. Like dsw said, just use silicone spray on the seal area and it will work as designed.

    +2 Silicon spray. Check the tabs, if they have flash or burrs file that smooth.

    Super simple fix, take the cap apart, remove the 3 tab piece, put it back together. I have never seen one move or loosen, you can always put it back on if you dont like!
