If you have help, push both tabs in with two small screwdrivers, while helper pulls on line. simple. now that every thing is disconnected remove the two front tank bolts that you loosened earlier , and lift tank off.
Not sure If I read your post of figured it out on my own, but it is MUCH easier to do it this way than to lift the front of the tank. by removing the pivot bolt entirely and leaving the two front bolts loose but in place, you can create more space for your hands to get to the connections under the tank.


Also the Hyperpro steering damper mount makes it impossible to lift the tank from the front without removing the steering head nut as shown here.



here is both a left and right side shot of the tank lifted from the rear.
Sorry for the one blurry pic. trying to hold a tank FULL of gas and operate the cell phone cam seemed to be a laborious task

Nothing. it will prime when you key on/turn over the bike.

When I'm removing/disconnecting the tank, can it be expected to drip a little fuel? I got it unscrewed and when I started to move the tank fuel was dripping out. I got worried and put it back on the bike, and it doesn't seem to be dripping/leaking out anymore.

How do the fuel lines work? I assume that when I disconnect the tank from the bike fuel isn't going to come gushing out, but is it normal to have a few drips? And should I worry about that when I reconnect everything? The last thing I want is to cause a fuel leak and have it catch fire between my legs.

There's a little ball valve that stops it gushing out. Yes, you will get a few drops. Put a rag under the tank to soak up the few drops. When you hook it back up, you'll get a decisive click when it's all the way in.

Yes it's normal to drip some fuel. Just put a rag under the line.
It has a stop valve and wont leak fuel when disconnected.
Make sure it clicks when you reconnect it and slide the locking tab over.

Hi all,

I need to fix a couple of dents and then take my tank off so I need to remove the fuel pump. The manual says the fuel pump, fuel filter and low fuel sensor "is a sealed for life unit and must be replaced as a complete assembly." Can I take this stuff out and then put it back in no problem? Thanks.

Edit: it looks like this is fine to take out and put back in, but is a new sealing ring in the fuel pump assembly an absolute requirement for re-installation?

when you pull the pump with the ring seal, I would recommend putting it in a 1 gallon/ 3.78 liter zip lock bag, should help keep the seal from drying out. I have installed and reinstalled plenty of fuel pumps using the same seal. I have had others which I did not put in a bag, end up drying out and shrinking. not a bad idea to replace the rubber seal, but not absolutely needed.

Most of you people are not capable of being your GD self, to damn worried about being politcally correct.
