Default Re: HOW TO : Remove the Gas Tank

I intend to have my bike repainted this winter since I wont be able to ride it much, and my L&M goodies will need a fresh coat anyway. When you remove the tank, does it damage anything for it to be empty for a while? I'm not sure how quickly it will get done, and I was curious.

As for draining the tank, you can buy a manual pump at your local auto store for under $10 and siphon it out
looks like you can twist that knob on it to shut off the fuel so then the gas in it wont come out.. just wouldn't flip it upside down

Are there any videos of this?
What if I still have fuel in it?

You could do this with a full tank if you wanted. Just make sure the petcock is closed and you have a rag each time you disconnect a fuel hose. I've taken mine off at least a dozen times. Just lighter and easier with less fuel

Correct.


For whoever asked, the valve is a petcock. It shuts the fuel line off.

I just took my tank off this week to run some wires for my speakers. I tried to syphon out as much as I can but this tank has a way of hiding gas. A tip for anyone attempting this, get as much out as you can and make sure you turn the petcock valve to the closed position first. No matter how dry you think it is...

If you are really careful and just need to run some wires under it you can just undo the two bolts and the electrical wire.
