It latches so it can't just be something with the seal. Something must be bent and/or replaced with aftermarket. Mine has a slight lift after setting it down, but only latches if I press it down to flatten it out as I turn the key to the lock position.

Because this is a potential entry vector for debris as you open up for refuel, I'd say this is probably more than an annoyance.

I don't haven't had any experience with needing to replace those parts. But I have seen them online. May try https://mrcycles.com/ or Amazon.

Got curious...
...and the OEM cap assembly is more than a little pricey.

Amazon.com : r6 cap assembly
...those are much more reasonable in price but as you already know, sometimes we get what we pay for.
