Question Fuel Tank Removal

It's time to install the new Sprint P16 air filter.
I assume that I can remove the fuel tank without it leaking fuel all over the place; correct?
Please advise.
Thanks in advance.

Quick release connection on the RHS under the tank.

Yes it is very easy.

1. Remove the Key Cover.
2. Remove Air Intake Covers.
3. Remove Seat.
4. Remove Fuel Tank Bracket.
5. Loosen Tank at the Steering Column.

If this is the first time that the tank has been removed, I suggest the following:

5a. Remove the ABS Cover and mark the 2 rubber lines that connect to the tank. One is pressurized, one is not.
5b. Add disconnects on these lines. I believe they are 1/4 size holes.

These lines are very difficult to remove because the clamps are under the fuel tank. The lines are not long enough so you cannot lift the tank high enough to move them out of the nipples.

More segway - Is the evaporator canister still on? You might want to remove this also.

6. Lift the tank from the seat and disconnect the fuel pump lines, including the ground wire.
7. Lift the tank and disconnect the quick-disconnect fuel lines.
8. Remove the Fuel Tank bolts a the steering column.
9. Remove the tank.
10. Remove the upper fuel/electric throttle body brackets.
11. Remove the filter.

Reverse the process for installation.
Thanks from AntiHero, Phl, Styler and 3 others

quick question for you all since I'm not by my bike right now to check it...

does anyone know the size of the fuel line that comes off of the quick connects on the fuel tank?

I'm looking to replace the plastic quick connects with metal ones and need to know the fuel line size so that I can buy the right sized barbed fitting.

Thanks!

I have installed this chromed brass quick disconnect as the OEM thermoplastic can fail.

I have 27,000 miles using it on my 1199S with no problems.

On my 1299S the two rubber lines connect to a "Y" plastic connector and which in turn connects to another rubber tube that runs down to the bottom fairing by the radiator.

Is there a simple and reliable alternative to this set-up? At least one of the hoses from tank keeps pulling free and also the "Y" connector keeps pulling out every time I lift the tank.

You mention adding disconnects, do you have a link?

The disconnects are for the single fuel line, not the 2 vent lines

Only way is to probably buy some 1/4" rubber tubing and extend your current lines so that they're not too short where every time you pull on it, they pull off.
