HELP ! As I cant use my bike

What a waste of money! What a waste of money! What a waste of money!

I just got one as a gift...
- I screwed it in lightly. Locked it.
- Then reached down under the spinning cap and unscrewed the stationary dip stick cap, with my fingers!

And my oil filler port was open - for anyone! - Is this a novelty?
Someone can easily get into this oil filler port.
What a joke.
If yours is on tighter, use a adjustable end wrench and simply unscrew the non spinning part of the cap.
I suppose it could fool the average bozo, in a hurry, to do some tampering, on the sly.
There is nothing LOCKING about this filler cap in my opinion.

What a waste of money! What a waste of money! What a waste of money!
