Know what you Mean.

Just got a 97 750. Had a similar problem. The bike would 'start' but not continue to run. The flow from the tank is vacuum activated. You wont get any gas from the tank unless you 'suck' on the center hose. I drained the tank, added a couple gallons of good gas and 3-4 ozs of Sea-Foam, reconnected the hoses and cranked it over for awhile, then let it sit overnite. It started rite up.

...As far as the key-in-the-gas-tank goes,try pushing down (hard) on the cap while turning the key, then wd40 the mechanism when it's open.
