Update:

Soaking in cocktail of different penatrating oils for 24+ hours, didn't work... I was trying the "rocking" method. However, a few gentle strikes with a hammer, then followed with "rocking" did work!

I had a 82 CB750 project bike this happened to after 10 years of sitting. Break free bolt and rust loosener worked good to. Glad to here you cracked it though.

The lock/tumblers actuate the spring loaded locking dogs on the side of the cap. It may not be the lock, but the dogs and where they contact that needs attention as well.

Exclamation I Got One Even Better...
So I get up this morning, get dressed, look into the mirror and think to myself "Lets do this" (Job Interview) - So I hop on my R6 and head that way, about 4 miles in, I realize I wont make it unless I fill up the tank, so I stop and proceed to wrestle with my tank lock. It was white and oxidized as others have stated, and have had few problems with it before, but this time I bend the key trying to get in. UGH, dreadfully, I call my would be employer and try to explain that I need to reschedule, LUCKILY, he too was a fellow rider and understood. I get home, immediately came to this thread and read thru all of them, walked outside with a hammer and my key, hit the lock 3 or 4times and turned the key, my jaw dropped! What a bad way to start your morning eh??? Needless to say, it is now soaked in Liquid Wrench.
