Took my tank off last night, after consulting this thread again. Didn't see any reason to remove the dash off the tank. Actually I couldn't get a wrench in to remove that forward alan head fastener under the ignition switch.

Just remove the back two bolts, remove the rubber caps and front two bolts, the quick disconnect on the fuel line, unplug the connector that goes to the ecm, pull out the two drain lines that follow the frame tubes on each side of the bike and the tank lifts right off. Easy peasy, no tricks at all. But thanks for the pics, I actually didn't know the fuel connector was a quick disconnect.

With ABS, the front brake lines run down/up the backbone of the frame to the ABS module. They run next to the wire-trough.

Below are my step by step instructions on how I completed this task.

After removing the seat remove this middle bolt with is securing the dash.


Remove the allen screw on the front side of the dash too.


Before lifting the dash from the tank unplug this harness from top of the tank.


Safely place the dash aside. I did not unplug any harness that went from the dash to the ECM.


Tank at this stage.



Release this quick disconnect fuel line.


Unplug this harness from under the tank found on the left side.


Remove rear tank bolts.


After removing the rubber caps, remove the front tank bolts.


Lift the tank and safely set it aside.


The wire channel is now exposed and I easily ran my wires.


That's it!
Thanks for the info. like the pics.
