Hi ..... Have a look at the front & lower mountings, one side will remove completely, this is the side the engine MUST come out. Place a couple of rags on the lower frame tubes/cradle and with the help of at least one friend remove the last bolt, lift, swivel and remove. Not as easy as it sounds, you've not got a lot of room to 'play' with.

Romoving fuel tank from hd 1200x

To remove a 2011 XL fuel tank FIRST purge the fuel supply line of high pressure gasoline by removing the left side cover, removing the fuel pump connector from the ECM caddy cover (2), unplugging the fuel pump connector, starting the engine and allowing it to run until it quits and then operating the starter for another 3 seconds, turning the ignition switch to OFF, releasing/disconnecting the fuel tank quick-connect fitting, removing the main fuse, removing the seat and draining the fuel tank, (If inserting a tube into the fuel tank to remove fuel do so only on the right side to avoid damage to the fuel pump assembly on the left side of the tank interior.)THEN remove the vent hose, cable clip securing the fuel pump wiring harness, unplug the unplug the fuel pump connector, remove the bolt thread protective caps, lock nuts, screws and washers from the front and rear of the fuel tank, put a clean soft cloth or towel over the front of the fuel tank protect it from damaging contact with the top fork clamp, lift the rear of the fuel tank up, remove the fuel pump harness from the clip on the frame backbone tube and remove the fuel tank from the bike to a workbench area. Where the fuel pump assembly can be removed if necessary and where the tank can be cleaned if necessary.

To install a 2011 XL fuel tank FIRST install the fuel pump into the fuel tank with a new gasket, THEN place the fuel tank onto the bike over the frame backbone tube ensuring that the front fuel tank brackets go on outboard of the ignition coil bracket, put the washer on the long bolt and insert if from the left side into the front fuel tank bracket, the ignition coil bracket, the frame and the right side fuel tank bracket, put the second washer over the bolt threaded end and start the locknut. THEN put a clean soft cloth or towel over the front of the fuel tank to protect it from damaging contact with the top fork clamp, lift up the rear end of the fuel tank and put the fuel pump wiring harness into its clip on the frame backbone tube ensuring that the harness forms a loop between the clip and the fuel pump module to keep from pinching the harness between the fuel tank and the frame backbone, route the fuel pump wiring harness down along the left side of the H-bracket, secure it with a cable clip, push the clip into its hole in the H-bracket mounting boss, lower the rear of the fuel tank into place, put the washer on the short boltandfrom the right side push it into place through the rear fuel tank bracket and frame, put the second washer over the threaded end of the bolt, and start the locknut onto the bolt threads. And then tighten both the front and rear fuel tank mounting nuts and bolts to 15-20 ft-lbs (20.4-27.1 Nm), install the protective caps over the bolt threaded ends, install the vent hose, connect the fuel tank quick connect fitting and ensure that it is locked into place, fill the tank with fuel, carefully inspect for leaks , install the main fuse, turn the ignition switch ON and verify fuel pump operation, again inspect for fuel leaks, turn the ignition switch OFF, close the side cover and install the seat.

How do install a battery in a dirty bike

Clean it first with soap and water. Spray it with a hose to knock off any buildup of mud. That way it will be a clean bike instead of a dirty bike. Locate the battery and remove any fenders/plastics that keep you from having room to remove it. Keep track of everything you remove and where it goes. A magnetic pan is helpful for holding any nuts/bolts so you dont lose them. There may be a cover or strap that holds the battery in place.Remove it. Using a screwdriver ( a phillips head or a flat head depending on the bolt), disconnect the cables from the battery. The ground wire (the wire that runs to the frame and is connected to the battery terminal labeled "-") first. Disconect the hot wire ( the wire connected to the positive terminal on the battery labeled "+") next. Keep track of which wire is which. Remove the old battery and put the new battery in its place. Your new battery should be prepared/mixed beforehand. Connect the wires to the battery (the hot wire first) and secure it in place with whatever device that held the old one in place ( the strap or cover you may have removed). Replace all your fenders and you're done. Try to clean your bike consistently. No one likes a dirty bike. Hope this helps! Dont get hurt and wear proper safety attire. Handle batteries with caution and dispose of them properly. I am not responsible for any injuries you cause to yourself ( which i suspect you are susceptible to because you cant replace a battery).

Disconnecting a FXD battery

I'm not completely sure about the later models but on the earlier models, first remove the seat. Then look to rear of the battery cover on the right side of the bike and there are two bolts between the battery and the rear wheel on the frame. Loosen these two bolts. Now, look down into the frame from the top and just inside the frame from the battery, you should see a bolt head. This is a "jack bolt". Turning the bolt counterclockwise will lower the battery tray allowing you to get the top off the battery and access the battery post. Turning the bolt clockwise will raise the battery tray. Disconnect the negative first when removing the battery. Connect the negative last when replacing the battery.

Good Luck

How to take gas tank off 1997 kawaski vulcan 800 classic

Disconnect the gas line from the petcock (should be in ON or RES position). Remove the seat. Remove the bottom bolt of the dash and lift it up, then disconnect the two wiring harnesses and the speedo cable. Remove the bolt under the dash on the frame mount and the bolt at the rear of the tank. Lift the tank, and you can disconnect the one or two (CA models) vent lines. Place the tank so that the weight is not resting on the petcock.

There is two bolts 10mm i thimk that holds starter on. you need to disconnect the battery first. Also disconnect the starter wire. Sometimes I drop the exhaust manifold if i feel like it. You can remove the starter to see if it is actually working by hooking it up to a battery. If the starter clutch assy is bad, you have to remove the frame rail, the engine, take off the 11 bolts from the rear cover, remove the alternator rotor assy, etc. This happens sometimes when the starter is good. Is good to have friend help when r&r engine..Hope this helps you with your scoot, Rick

How do i remove the gas tank

You pretty much have to remove the entire rear of the bike to get the tank out. I will explain it step by step..(bike needs to be on its center stand)
1) Turn the fuel to off, then pull the hose from the tank to the pump. With a funnel and a gas can ready, turn the fuel to reserve and drain the tank.
2) Remove the bags and trunk if equipped
3) Disconnect the shock air hoses from the 3-way joint, then remove the top shock nut. If you have the grab rail, remove the mount bolts and remove rail.
4) Remove the lower shock nut and remove the shocks. DO NOT lay the shocks on their side or the fluid will run out the air lines.
5) Remove the seat, disconnect the wiring to the rear light, then remove the rear inner and outer fenders.
6) Place a block under the tire so the axle clears the height of the muffler, as the axle will need to be driven out from left to right over the top of the right muffler. (you can switch #5 and #6 if you need to)
7) Disconnect rear caliper and tie out of the way taking care not to bend the supply tube.
8) Then remove the wheel, and move it away, keeping it upright (don't tip it over)
9) Remove the left side cover and take out the battery, and the battery box.
10) Remove the left side engine mount plate, then remove the fuel valve.
11) Disconnect the fuel gauge wires, the remove the tank bolt , then cross plate that is over the top of the frame.
You can now move the tank to the rear and out of the frame.
This is a long and tedious job that you will want to plan as a weekend project. It really helps to have a helper with this. If you run into any snags, let me know. My e mail is
