Solex Gas Cap - Won't Budge

So the gas cap on my Solex on occasion becomes impossible to remove.

I have to grab the tabs on the cap with two pairs of pliers to get the cap off sometimes.

Other times is screws off relatively easily.

Is this a common problem? WHY is it happening?

I have the same problem and as far as I know there really isn't anything you can do about it except make sure you don't put it on any tighter than needed.

Yeah, mine is the same way.

If it has a vent hole and it is plugged it may be vacumn sucking it on, or maybe just vibration causing it to seat really tight. Thats all I can think of...
