Fuel tank removal
« on: 23 June, 2020, 12:50:31 PM »
Hi all
Newbie to the forum. I've not done any work on my bike before but I now need to remove the fuel tank, is this an easy job? Do I need any specialist tools? Do I need to replace anything when I put it back on? Any advice greatly received  :001:

Why do you want to remove the tank?

You'll find Section 4 page 5 (lifting the fuel tank) and Section 6 page 57 (removing the fuel tank) of the Workshop Manual an interesting read.

You can download the Workshop and Owners Manuals here

Thanks for the link, should be an interesting first project :016:
I'm taking it off so someone can fix a big scratch I have.
Thanks again Art

I've just downloaded the owners manual but for some reason the service manual won't download. I think I'll start slowly and take the fairings off and work it out as I go along. What's the worst that could happen. :008:

Good luck

You can also download the Honda SC58 Workshop Manual from here but you'll need to download it section by section as 25 pdf's

There's quite a lot of 'what's the worse that could happen', but if needs must etc.

Tip #1.  Run the tank low.  Very low.  It is hard enough to handle anyway but add fuel (you get the picture).
Only do it right - no bodging please.   Keeper of the failed stator list.   John.
