Last time I gased up my V star 1100 custom, I installed the gas cap wrong. Never noticed as it just snapped into place like usual. Well I stopped to gas up today and the gas cap won't come off. Turns out it's a half turn off, the arrow is down instead of up. How do I get it off. I put the key in and nothing happens. I pushed down while turning the key, nothing. It will turn hard about an eigth of a turn either way, but that's it. HELP

I got it

I got the gas cap off. Got to thinking about it and put the owners manual, for lack of something else, along side the cap and on the tank, so as not to dent or scratch. I took a large screwdriver and lightly pried up on the lower side of the cap and worked it off. All of this was done with the key turned a quarter turn. It wouldn't move on the top side. No damage, except ego.
