    Gen 4 fuel tank removal

    Can anyone post some screenshots of how to remove the fuel tank on the gen 4? As you can't buy the workshop manual anymore it makes things a bit more of a guessing game nowadays for me.

    From 4:00 roughly


    Remove tank cover
    Remove the seat
    Unscrew 2 bolts that hold the tank (left/right)
    Unscrew 1 long bolt that holds the tank under the seat
    Remove 2 rubber hoses that connect to the tank
    Lift front side of the tank
    Lift rear side of the tank, and move it a little bit back, which gives enough clearance to slide a hand underneath to disconnect 3 connectors
    Fuel like is easy, there is a button to release
    The other two are annoying, I usually use a flat screwdriver to unplug the top of comnector

    FYI... When putting the tank back on, you need to slide the back end of the ECU into the two prongs at the front of the tank before you insert the front bolt for the ECU. You can check if it's all seated correctly as the ECU floats and doesn't touch anything if you look underneath the ECU. The ECU doesn't like vibration and it's easy not to realise how it seats. J
