I was wondering if anyone knew the socket size to remove the fuel reserve sensor on the tank?

Thank you for future helpI replaced my sensor about a year ago when it quit working at 32k.
I don't recall what size it was but it was a common metric, possibly 14mm ?!?...
I was able to R & R without having to drain the tank OR disconnect any of the lines by doing the following ;
I rode the bike till it had very little gas left, maybe 1 quart max.
I wedged and secured the front wheel perfectly straight so there was no chance the handlebars would rotate in to the tank as I pulled the tank straight back.
I lowered the tank ( wrapped in a soft towel) on to a low chair with the front of tank down low so gas will pool away from the threaded hole where the sensor was.
No need to disconnect any of the lines.
I did spray a small amount of silicone on the rubber grommets to allow the tank to easily slide back into place.
The procedure went smoothly, I don't think it would be a good idea to try and replace it without removing tank.
Hope this helps !
I hate it when that happens...
True that, been there .... ESPECIALLY when you have to push up backwards when you 'mistakenly' parked it nose in/down in a parking spot. (Aren't they suppose to level these parking lots!)I hate it when that happens...
I ordered mine at the Honda parts counter and supplied the part #'s to the parts guy.
Got lucky with a skilled parts guy who informed me it comes with a new O-ring / gasket before he special ordered it.
My theory on how often they go bad is based on how often you get low on fuel and it activates.
With the small tank fuel capacity of the Fury (3.5 gallon ) I used the tripmeter and the low fuel light and take to the edge regularly.
I admit it...I ran out of gas about 3 times when I 1st bought it until I got with the program.
668 pounds.. you don't feel it until you push it.
Thanks for the POR15 link.
