Hey Little Burt,

Here are a couple more pics that along with Ninja's pics should help you out.

Chrome speedometer bezel removed


Unclip these three connectors from tank along with gas tank breather hose


Remove 2 nuts from tail end of fuel tank


Remove 2 bolts and cover from head end of fuel tank, then 2 more bolts from under the cover


Gently remove tank and secure with straps (I hung mine from garage door railing)


As Ninja said there is no need to remove the fuel tank lines. Sorry, no pics of the BAK
mod, I did the same mod to the air box that Ninja did.

Hope this helps,

Shawn

One thing is make sure you get the rear small crank filter installed so it is straight up and down......if it's leaning over at all, it will blow oil out onto the rear rocker cover and back onto the sidecover. If you'll notice is the pics, mine is not right, I had to take the tank back off and stand that filter up.

The way I understood it is that Ninja just released the back two bolts of the tank and then lifted the rear and hung that from the ceiling. I am just putting the K&N filter in with holes in the top of the airbox so is this correct about just raising the rear of the tank and hanging it?

Hey Desertraider

You will have to take off the bolts at the head of the tank as well. The fuel lines are attatched at the rear of the tank and won't allow you to lift the rear of the tank very far, as you can see from my last picture. That is as far as the rear could be raised without disconnecting the fuel lines.

hope this helps,

shawn

Just disconnect the lines, and get that tank off the bike and set it out of the way. Why take a chance on it getting, scratched, dinged, dented, falling, ect, hanging it like that. It'll take ya a whole 15 min more.

Would anyone be interested in exposed K&N filters on both sides of the bike?

LM
I would be interested in seeing what it looked like on the raider at least!!!

I still can't figure out why they put the air filters under the tank. How can that be efficient?
Oh well, mine is not to question why, mine is to ride!
