You will need to follow the steps in the link below to remove the seats before removing the tank.

Once you have the seats removed



First turn the gas to the OFF position on the petcock. See below.



Next slide the retaining clip on the fuel line away from the petcock. See below.



Next slide the fuel line off the outlet. be aware thet some gas will drain from the hose. See below.



Next remove the 12mm bolt holding the rear of the tank in place. See below.



Next remove the 10mm bolts on either side of the tank in front. See below.



Now you can remove the tank from the bike.



To remount the tank, reverse the process.

Thank you. That was easy. Now the fire department will stop complaining that I have a motorcycle in my store.

It's best to drain the tank while it's on. But opinions may vary. Use a pair of pliers to squeeze the hose clamp open at the carb and pull the hose off. Then you can open the petcock (I assumed it was closed to begin with) and drain the fuel into an appropriate container.

That is easy, I don't know why I was so intimidated... Now is there one more step for California bikes with a vent thingy?

Does all the fuel need to be drained from the tank prior to removal?

Not if you are going to put it right back on. Just make sure the petcock is off

Thanks for the instructions, I easily removed the gas tank.
However when I went to paint it, i was cleaning it on its side, and some fuel began to leak from the cap. The petcock is off, no problems there and the cap is locked but it still leaks. Should there be some sort of seal that is missing?
