Is there any issue or info on this subject? Only reason I ask is I purchased the bike used and and prior knucklehead owner used some sort of sealer on the filler opening and I can't get it to come off with causing significant damage.

Once you have found the screws that Brad advised you of, you should then search the forum on how to replace the cap, O ring and in particular the sealing lip/gasket as it can be a bitch without reading how first.

Maybe the PO was not a knucklehead after all?

Does the fuel in the tank act as a heat sink for the fuel pump? Would just moving it outside shorten the life of the pump or is the internal location more of a packaging issue. I don't know so I'm asking. Other types of ICE powered vehicles do use the fuel tank as a heat sink for the pump, thus my reason for asking.
