Thank you! Tried to do it and wouldn't let me. Thought it might have been my stupid smart phone.

got mine done today. took them longer to type up the paperwork than to fix it. 2 minute job and it was fixed. All the tool does is put a few scratches in the threads to make it seal better. Stupid useless recall, but figured I better get it done.

Ok got mine done. The work itself didn't take long at all. The tech or whatever that worked on mine said that the tool threaded into the neck and checked the torque of the neck. I'm not sure if this is what it actually does or if it is only supposed to scratch up the threads. My neck is still at the same orientation so I have no clue. Pretty sure he was trying to blow smoke at me.

The tool just crimp the thread together. An old tinsmith trick.

So is it even worth the trip to the dealer?

Just got mine done. Saturdays are walk-in days at our dealership. First come - first serve. There was another guy there at the counter for the same thing. The tech grabbed the tool and did the mod while the service guy was printing up the paperwork. Took only a minute of two for the job. Ratchet the tool down onto the threads and ratchet back out. The tech said that it pinches the threads a bit and allows the gas cap to seat fully down into the neck. That without the mod the cap can click over like it is fully seated even if it isn't.

Might as well. It's free and it will give you an excuse to go and wonder around looking at all the overpriced parts in the dealership.

Default Recall 6013 08-11 Dnya's and XL's

Recall no. 0613

The gas cap may develop a fitment issue in the threads of the tank and cap leading to an improper seal and fuel venting through the cap.

I Got an email today from HD Forums about this. Thought I would pass it along.
