R75/5 Fuel Cap gasket replacement

My R75/5's fuel cap is not making good seal with the tank. It looks like there is a rivet that holding the sealing gasket.


What is the proper way to replace the seal that I can do at home? Or does it take special tools?

I think Duane Ausherman has instructions on his site. Or you could try Snowbum. It's not a difficult job; at the worst you might have to drill out the rivet and tap threads for a stainless button head allen. Not a big deal. But I think the rivet will pry out of there.

I saw the parts before, just didn't know how to actually replace it.

Followed Wirespokes advice and looked through Duane's site and found it:
