Ninja Gas Cap

I've got a friend with a 1999 Kawi Ninja 500. He had trouble with not being able to unlock his gas cap a while ago, but was able to coax it open eventually, and lube it, and all was good. Until a couple weeks ago when it seized again, and now he's unable to open it at all. So, #1, anyone have some hints on how to get this sucker open? He is unable to remove it completely without opening it. He is pretty mechanically inclined, so I assume he's tried all normal methods of releasing a stuck lock. #2, does anyone know where he could get a racing-style gas cap (no lock, just unscrews) for it?

My goal is simple. It is a complete understanding of the universe, why it is as it is and why it exists at all.
