Hi,

I have done air filter change couple times before and I have allways stripped all plastic off bike as guides allways shows, lots of work.

Now I took my moving workstations(with 6-pack of cider) to my bike and remembered thing what repair guy once told me that just loose plastics and move tank.

It wasn't that bad task if you just take all screws off that keeps plastics on the place and take that tank bolt and tank lever bolt off. Had to take those two little black plastic covers off only.


You can get tank off without stripping everything. :surprise:

I worried about scratching the paint doing it that way.

It wasn't problem that paint would take damage. It came out completely clean, I was suprised how easily it came off.

Lordy, I’ve never pulled the plastics to take the tank off. A couple of rags between the tank and plastics and you’re good to go.
As pretty "new" to these things I hope some-one told me that 4 years ago :wink2: Don't do stuff hardway if easy way is possible.

I always take the opportunity with the tank off, to give a good check of everything I can below it. I don't get all the poo pooing about how hard it is to get the tank and plastics off this bike, there are bikes out there which are much much harder in this regard.

Different model years have different plastics, and will require different amounts of removal. In a perfect world they would all be easy, but the designer had another idea.
