Removing Fuel Tank

Removing the tank to have a ding repaired and repaired. Any gotchas? Is it straight-forward?

The reason I ask is that on the Shadow forums... there were several guys that had issues with a part that was easily broken. Don't want to break anything. Thanks!

Can't think of anything breakable but ya still have to take your time and be gentle ! There is the nut & bolt that is removed then lift the btm of the tank slightly and you'll see 3 hoses & a harness to your sensor. That's it except making sure the gas is drained

+1 on the gas being drained or you will have a big mess and your house will smell like gas and someone will complain so i heard lol.

I've taken my tank off a couple of times. I put a stool on the right side of bike to lay the tank on. I just flip the tank over and lay it on its back. Label all the hoses and stand pipes. However, it is an easy job. Less fuel is better.

When labeling everything under tank wire markers for electrical work really well, and they'll be there next time tank is pulled for maintenance or upgrades. Merry Christmas guys...
