Title: Tank removal and reinstall question
Post by: RuffRider on Jan 22, 2021, 02:42:15 pm
 when removing the gas tank for painting - when I put the tank back on are there any gaskets or parts that need to be replaced?

I hope not because I never replaced anything, but my bike was only a couple weeks old when I got it painted too.

No gaskets, just make sure the tank sits on the rubbers on the frame nicely.

I replaced my clips holding the fuel lines onto the tank as the standard ones are a pain to get on and off.

Otherwise all good

It's not hard at all. You'll do fine.
