Videos on removing and reinstalling fuel tank covers on the Glee

I have read from time to time requests for help and for videos on how to remove the fuel tank covers on the 2012 v-strom. I needed to do work under my fuel tank today, so I thought I would make a couple of videos to show how I did it.

Removing the cover can be found here:

Reinstalling the cover can be found here:

I hope this is helpful.

Great job, thanks for posting those.

Now if you could do a tank lift and show that, I'll send you some money!

I'm putting off messing with any body panels as long as possible....and your videos show why! So far I've been able to route wires without removing any body work, but eventually when the maintenance is due, it will be unavoidable.

Good enough for a sticky in my opinion.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s
See https://www.stromtrooper.com/general...nicknames.html

Steve,

The first time I removed the tank it took me much of a morning, just to take the tank off. Today I removed all the plastic, fixed what I needed to fix under the tank, shot the videos, and reinstalled everything...all in about two hours. However, today I didn't need to unhook the lines under the tank; I just needed to be able to lift it up a little. When I did that the first time, it was a little tricky unfastening the clip that holds the gas line to the tank.

I would be glad to try to take some video to show how it's done, but YouTube has a 15 minute limit, and I know I can't do it that fast. :-)

The owner's manual is really very clear on how to do everything. I just followed the steps there.

Paul

Thumbs up

Thanks for the great YouTube videos on how to remove the side panels! You saved me a lot of frustration, time and damage by trying to figure it out on my own!!!

Any chance of a video replacing/cleaning the air filter?

I just put a Procedure up with Photos for getting the tank off and removing the Air Filter. I don't do Videos yet, I find being able to print and look at a pictures while working on the bike is good.
