Tank Removal?

Has anyone removed their tank? I'd like to get a look at the spine for sizing and cable routing, as well as the underside of the tank for the location of the fuel pump.

Does anyone have photographs of the bike sans tank? If not, is there a specific mode for removal? It was so much easier on my CB500...

It's pretty easy once you figure out the trick of removing the hose clamps for the cross-over line. It's actually easy because all you need to do is pop up the end tab of the clamp and it releases it. Those are installed at the factory so you need conventional hose clamps to re-install the cross-over line. The line to the fuel injection is a quick-disconnect fitting and the low fuel light electrical wiring is has a disconnect fitting like the others used on the motorcycle.

Not the best picture but the only one handy showing my 750 with the tank off.







Always remember that for every mile of highway there are two miles of ditches.
