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.
I got a fever and the only prescription is more cowbell
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

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.
