Has anyone taken the tank off yet. I need to do it so I can run the wiring for a lighting kit. I've taken off the bolt at the rear and can lift it up a bit but I can't tell what's holding it on up front. Would have spent more time but have to head back to the office.

I tried searching but couldn't find anything. If you know of another post please let me know.

Empty fuel from tank first (if you haven't already), makes things easier.

Look under tank when you lift it. You will see two wires plugged into the bottom of tank. Unplug those, and carefully slide tank rearward off it's front mounts (a little side to side motion will help). There are also fuel lines attached underneath, so don't move it too far. When I removed mine, I left the fuel lines on, and carefully pivoted the tank over to the left side of the bike, and supported it on a barrel with towels on it.

Yep, the front is held on by rubber grommets that fit into the tank mounted brackets. Just wiggle it from side to side while pulling back. You don't have to disconnect the fuel lines and fuel pump wires. Just make sure you leave some slack in them when working under the tank.

I'm taking my tank and fenders soon for custom paint, and will probably remove them myself rather than have the painter monkey with them. When removing the tank, how should I plug/seal the fuel lines? The tank itself? Any suggestions would be appreciated:D

Thanks much
Mike

I use bolts stuck in the hose, you only need to plug the 2 (supply and return) you do not need to plug the vent. If you golf, the tees work ok too, just tape off the fittings on the tank. When reinstalling the tank I spray silicone lube on the rubber tank mounts to let them slide on easier.

What is the best way to empty the fuel tank? Of course ride until it is almost empty, but how do you drain the remaining fuel? When disconnecting the fuel line does it flow out of the tube?

I use 'Kellys' that clamp closed the lines when taking off the tank. They look like sissors but clamp and lock. Can be found at Walmart, etc. They are similar to what surgeons use only without the blood! :eek:
