Pull the seat and there is a bolt that holds the tank in place, remove it and carefully lift and you will see 3 hoses & clamps that hold them in place. Will also see where the wires hook up to the fuel level sensor . Have something to catch what gas is left when you remove the hoses then pull the tank forward from the rubber mounts its in & your done ;)

Same thing happen to me last year when I had to drop the bike (got cut off). If it wasn't for the lollipops the tank would have made it without a scratch on it. Im thinking that Honda should redesign those lights or their placement.
Or our insurance companies should give us some kind of discount on buying new lights which would prevent the purchase of a new tank when the bike drops.
I now have the raw blades and i know the tank is safe i the bike goes down.

Don't forget to tape and label the connectors and hoses! The front of the tank is held in place by rubber knobs on the frame that fit into the tanks C plate.

I didn't label the lines ? There are 3 with one smaller then the other 2. The 2 that are the same size are the only ones you might cross and there is one higher then the other so my tank went right back on the way it came off. The switch I made mental note but could write it down although I don't think the switch leads mater it's an open or closed switch.

there's a chance your body shop will want the hoses removed. label them. or take a picture of them while they are still attached.
use a label maker or get some tags and tie them on each hose w/ a simple descrption such as front-mid-rear.

this will allow you to re-install the tank with the hoses connecting to the proper inlets.
