GSXR Problem

My compartment cover is stuck. I had the seat on for a while and it was fine. It did seem like it was starting to stick at one point but I just lubed the points that was giving me problems and it was fine. I have a 02 GSX-R 750. Anybody got any ideas that can help me out with this?


I really need to get in there cause my registration and tools and stuff is in there.

Nothing a good pry bar wouldn't fix!

No seriously... nothing selling it and buying a honda wouldn't fix!

No but honestly... I have no idea! Once you get it open if the problem doesn't entale some type of corrosion I would suggest you make some adjustments.

I got it off.

Hey thanks for the advise guys. I got it off. The cable actually jumped out of clip that was holding it in place. I took a long screw driver and held it in place while I turned the key. It popped right off. I think I had too much back there and it made the cable pop out the clip.

Finesse is all about choosing the right size hammer, if the first dont work, get a bigger one out.
