Just picked up an '80 CX500 Deluxe with full fairing and shoei bags for 300 bucks. Got her running this morning. She's sat for 2 years, but is in fantastic shape. I'll be giving her to my father
(After I do a carb cleaning that is!)

Wow, what a PITA!

I'll be waiting until tomorrow when I drop the bike off at my dad's house to do anything about that !
It was doable with the fairing on, but I think you had to take a screwdriver and push down on the corner of the cap while turning...or something strange like that. It might be helpful to take the tank off.
