Simply get a standard key cut at your local dealer. Cut off the shaft, put a slot in a standard Radio knob (Radio shack). Glue in or use the set-screw and Bingo! No more fumbling with the big key when you need to tank up! Cap can be removed and re-installed now with one hand.

This modification raises the backrest 2.5" in the front and, depending on what angle adjustment you make to it, about 3" in the rear. It can be fine tuned to fit your situation. Only some minor cutting of the stock slider, and fabrication of some simple brackets is necessary. I did this with scraps I had lying around so the cost was $0. To remove the backrest assembly, open the seat. There are two small recesses where the ends of the rods will be when the rest is all the way back. Carefully remove the two phillips head screws at the end of the rods. The whole assembly can now be removed out the front when you squeeze the adjustment lock. Once off, pry out the staples holding the rear cover on the backrest exposing the 3 nuts that hold the mechanism to the backrest. Follow the pics from there.

I used a 75db Piezo here and it is relatively quiet and unobtrusive. More than adequate for alerting you after a turn and before getting up to speed. At speed you cannot hear it so choose a higher DB Piezo if this is critical to you (may be obnoxiously loud when stopped!)
