Tried installing a new gas cap and one of the rubber O rings for the long bolts fell off into the tank. I can see it sitting at the bottom w/ a flashlight. The bolt did not go into the tank although I cant find it anywhere but I looked all around inside the tank and its not there. As far as the O ring what should I do? Does it need to come out or can it be left there?

if it was me, i wouldn't leave anything in there... and must be a tool out there that works like the magnetic tool, but with a grip instead :ponder:

something like this but smaller that could possibly grab the rubber o-ring...

doubt a spring hook will work, not enough room to maneuver it around and its to flexible, need something that would have to grab it, like a really long pair of needle nose pliers.

You're thinking of the wrong kind of spring hook.

YOU CAN SEE IT! how can you not figure out how to get it? just take a coathanger, hay wire, anything!

That would be better then what I previously thought of.

I wouldn't leave the o-ring in the tank, and more importantly you should locate the bolt. A stray bolt can cause a lot of damage. I'd start by removing the tank, pull the fuel pump, and flush the tank to ensure its not in there. And do some searching around to see if the bolt shows up. Just my $0.02.

well, then you can use what i suggested to get the rubber o-ring out, and then get a magnetic tool and just run it in the tank, hopefully that will work to find the bolt if there :popcorn:

Now keep in mind I don't have a CBR, so I don't know the exact layout. Could it have rolled down the tank into the frame area? Or seat area? Down in a crevice? It's possible it just dropped on the floor and took a bounce to where you won't find it, so it may not even be in the bike. I know a lot of people that would go with that and not do anything. And I'm not saying that's completely terrible. I'm just too paranoid of a person to not search. If I remember correctly, taking the tank of my buddies RR wasn't horrible, aside from the vent tubes. Maybe even just stand up the tank to look under, and poke around with a magnet. You might just get lucky.
