I too have large hands and took my tank off for the first time last night. I couldn't figure out how it was so hard to remove the line.:mad2::mad2::mad2:Well yeah, That support bracket is pretty important. Important enough it was included with the bike. Thought I had already covered that. I was just agreeing that with the tank on the support, it can still be tough to get the fuel line off the tank pipe fully because it is tight in there. Part of learning to work on bikes is getting used to restricted space. I have large hands that don't help things either.
Finally I squeezed the tabs, grabbed the fitting and let the tank drop onto my hands. The fuel line when propped up was binding. Once lowered the line disconnected easily.:mod_cool::mod_cool:
