Default HOW TO : Remove the Gas Tank

To remove the Gas Tank you will need to remove 2 bolts and disattatch 3 Hoses and 1 Connector

Tools Required:
Socket Wrench
12mm Socket
Pliers


First make sure your gas tank is empty.
Then disattatch the hose on the left side. use a set of pliers to get the clamp off.




Then remove the 2 bolts (1 per side)
Slide the gas tank back (towards the tail) to unhook the tank from the front slots.







Once the tank is lifted about 4 inches you can unplug the elctrical connector,






And disconnect the hose from the back center of the tank and from the front right part of the tank.

If you're talking about the 8th picture, that's the fuel petcock.
As for draining the tank, you can buy a manual pump at your local auto store for under $10 and siphon it out
