Default tank removal

guys I'm going to remove my tank and start some mods, but i have a few questions.

1. is there something I need to do to keep te fuel from leaking out? and i guess that would be answered by my second question...

2. Does anybody have any step by step instructions on how to do this? (illustrations or pics would also be a plus)


Thanks guys.

Do you have the service manual?

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

i have a service manual here....if u want i could copy some of the stuff....but it looks pretty straight forward to me, start with the seat.

Also i would just empty the tank before going at it ... just use a little fuelpump and there u go.

No need to empty the tank, but it's easier to handle with less gas in it, simply due to the weight.

1. Remove side covers
2. remove seat bolts and seat.
4. place a clean microfiber between the front of the tank and the triple tree to keep it from scratching for step 7.
4. Loosen, but do not completely remove the two tank strap bolts at the front of the tank
5. Remove the rear tank bolt and washer
6. Pull the vent and drain lines out of their drain hoses on the left side of the bike at the front of the side cover.
7. raise the tank at the rear and place a small block of wood under it to keep it raised a few inches
8. loosen the worm clamp that secures the fuel line to the bottom of the tank. You can use a flat screwdriver or I believe an 8mm socket. Shouldn't need the rachet, just an extension turned by hand. There will be a small amount of fuel that leaks out. I usually place a rag or paper towel under it before I loosen the clamp
9. Gently pry the fuel line off of the tank nipple. Rotating back and forth helps with this.
10. disconnect power to fuel pump at the connector under the tank.
11. remove block of wood or other wedge device, and remove the two front strap bolts
12. carefully lift tank straps over frame.
13. tank should come up and off...

Once you get the hang of this, the whole process takes less than 5 mins.

thanks guys, that was extremely easy, the hardest part was getting the fuel line away from the fitting, those damn things are on there good!

I'm very happy now! I wanted to fabricate a "cold air intake" like Lloydz torque tubes.... it's going to be extremely easy to do this with the factory internal air box, just a little time with the dremel and some bungs/grommets for the air flow sensors and i should have a cleaned up front end and "cold air intake". i'll post pics and everything as soon as I'm done.
