Tip #1---run the gas down before lifting the tank off.
Tip #2---buy a 10-pack of the black plastic fasteners ($6) in case you find a mangled one...or step on one.
Tip #3---Take a photo or make a note to yourself or stick the screws into a cardboard mock up of the tank and front fairing the first time (or two) your take things off. There are three or four different shape stainless bolts, screws in hidden spots, two sizes of plastic fasteners.
