Tank Removal


Remove seat

4 mm hex to remove key cover bolts (side panels)

8mm socket to remove tank hold down bolts (2 front & 1 rear)

Some people will remove the Battery Tray for extra room, but I chose to skip that step

Move yellow clip on fuel line rearward & squeeze white "tabs" to release line Picture "A"

Disconnect vent line (clip just down the line from tank) Picture "A"

Disconnect electrical line under right side of tank Picture "A"

Use hair dryer to heat tip over valve lines so they can be pulled apart Picture "B"

Remove tank & set aside
