89 TRX350 - gas cap has taken a poo

Hey guys. I was going to check the fuel level in my 89 TRX350 when I couldn't get the gas cap off. It has the little plastic "lock/open" lever on top of it. It feels like one side isn't opening when I flip the little switch thing. I didn't want to just pry the cap off for fear I wouldn't get it back on. I tried to find a new cap online in case I just have to break this one to remove it, but they don't seem to be available.

Help? What's a fellow to do?

Did you try pushing down hard on the fuel cap while turning the release knob...? You can spray some lube into the release mechanism around the release knob shaft to wet the two sliding pawls a bit.
