GAS TANK
1- remove the 12mm bolt
2- use a socket extension to hold the tank up while you unplug connectors -- 1 for the speedometer and 1 for the fuel pump. disconnect the fuel line by pinching the blue plastic connector and pull apart-- some gas will come out -- not much-- have a rag ready.
3- slide tank towards the back and up and off.
4- remove the screw on the plastic speedometer cover and slide off.
5- remove the 4 screws that hold the plastic speedometer cover on to the gauge.

(thanks Hink for the FAQ)

Run your tank almost empty of gas before removal so it's not so heavy.

There is only one screw that holds it down, that is the one under the seat. There are rubbers bumpers under the tank that may be helping hold it down. Just left it carefully. It will come off. Try pushing it forward as you lift it.

i took off screw and try to left the tank and it seemed like something was holding on still
The left and right side covers attach to the tank and can keep it from coming off if I remember right in my old age.

Keep an eye on the rubber grommets that the tank sit on (number 7 in the pic above). They can travel a long way if they fall off.

Ask me how I know.....:confused:.

you're doing custom work but you can't figure out how to take the tank off?
I assume someone else is doing it for you....seems like they should have taken it off
