the cap should be the same for most honda models (looks the same as my 750, but I know the 175 and 350s have a different one). If it is the cap is rivited on and you will need to drill out the old rivit and replace with a new rivet. I think the rivit is still available from honda, but I would make sure you have one before you start to destroy the old one.

It is like a super long rivet with a funny head, I think any old pop rivet will have too big a head to allow free movement of the gas cap. I've seen guys replace them with long but tiny flathead screws and had no problem, I think that is how honda service did it back it the day if they had to replace your cap.
