2012 DL 650 Fuel tank removal

So I've gotten almost everything disconnected so that I can lift the fuel tank off. However, I still can't get the fuel hose off. It has a different kind of fitting from the Wee. I can't make heads nor tails of it, how to remove it and the service manual is absolutely no help.

Also, besides servicing the air filter, is there anything else I should quickly do once I have the fuel tank off? Change the coolant maybe?

My Glee worked exactly the same way the Wee did. The plastic insert was blue instead of gray but it's still a matter of squeezing the ears on the colored plastic piece together to unlock the connector and leaving the colored plastic on the spigot while pulling the black plastic part away.

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

How many miles? Check/replace the plugs?
