Carburetor and gas cap issues
I have a 2000 v-star 1100, that will soon be in my name. I should mention that the bike has been sitting for several years, while I am taking care of most of the problems I've run across this far there are a couple of issues that elude me. The first being the gas cap isn't opening the key fits and rotates but nothing happens, I am concerned that the time it has been sitting has caused the mechanism to rust out enough to not function. Is there any way I can disassemble it enough to remove it or can I just brake it apart and find a new one?
The other issue I have found in my process of cleaning is the butterflies were locked up I have freed them enough that they move fully but they don't return without help, I'm not wanting to disassemble the full thing so I don't have to resync. What are my options?

Consider, your decisions often affect others more than you.
