My question is just the opposite of this. I took my tank off to route some wiring for my new amp and now I'm having trouble getting it back on. I routed the wiring exactly where I had my old amps wiring routed so that shouldn't be the problem. Suggestions?

with the seat remove and making sure there is no obstruction on the ears where the front hook of of the gas tank would lock into just put the gas tank a little lower then slide it forward.

THis is the way to do it to it.

I put my kickstand down with my hand.

I noticed that the rear tank hose didn't have a clic r clamp on it. I figured you cut that off and replaced it. Really easy to get to that point, then you gotta stop and go find a pair of metal snips to remove the **** thing.

The fuel shut off is nice too, but like someone said get a rag because anything in the line will come out. You don't even need to take the tank off to get to it either. Just remember to open it up after.

edit: So the clamp is called a clic R, and I should have just left it on and lifted the tank to get to my spark plugs and such. If you want to put another one on just make sure you got a clic tool to take care of this. You can find cheap ones on amazon that work fine.
