Very helpful post, thanks to OP. I'm running some speaker wires tomorrow and this is exactly what I needed.

You guys know that you dont need to syphon out the gas (unless you are trying to make the tank lighter) as long as the petcock valve is closed the only gas that would come out is the one that is already on the fuel line which you can prevent any drips by using a towel.

Yup. I must not've closed mine off all the way. Cost me a few pennies in lost gas and a small mess. No biggie. Worst part was, the gasoline melted all the plasti-dip off the engine cover that I meticulously painted 2 weekends back, LOL. Guess I'm doing it again.

That sucks, I had to repaint the plastic-dip parts also because i didnt use a towell and go some of the left over gas in the line.

When you put the tank back on should you use a torque wrench and if so what are the torque specs?

There's a lot of things that I torque to spec, but for the two bolts involved here, snug should be good enough. Even if they both fell out, the tank wouldn't go anywhere.

Not sure when you posted this but if it is recent, turn the petcock valve off, remove the tank, slip a piece of fuel line on to the tank or just hold it over a bucket (bit messier) and turn the petcock back on.
