The connection is under the seat, however, the lines go up the underside of the tank. You will need to pull the tank in order to remove the speedo properly. Once you take the seat off, there will be two bolts holding the tank down (under the front of the seat, at the bottom of the tank). Turn your fuel petcock to off, remove the fuel line from the carb feed, remove those two bolts under the seat near the bottom of the tank, lift up a bit and wiggle the tank off of the front mounts, and the tank is free. Now you can get under the tank and get the wires out without damaging things.
You will need to remove the fuel tank. The less fuel there is in the tank, the easier it is to do this. Remove the seat, then uncouple the quick release fuel line connection by pulling down on the chrome ring where the fuel line enters the fuel tank; the fuel line should pop free. You might want to place an absorbant rag underneath to catch any fuel that spills. Next, Follow the electrical wiring from the bottom of the tank rearward where it meets a connection plug behind the engine against the frame downtube. Disconnect this coupling and free the wire harness from the bike. There is a vent tube built into the bottom of the tank; unplug the fuel tank vent line rubber connection there. Remove the front and rear fuel tank mounting bolts. Once the tank is off the bike, turn it over on a soft, non-scratch material or pad. On the bottom of the tank you will see an oval plastic fitting where the fuel line and wiring harness attaches. Remove the eight or so Torx head screws and carefully remove the fuel pump assemble from the tank. You kind of have to twist and turn the unit to get it free; go easy. The fuel filter resides inside the tall translucent plastic housing. There is a clip attaching the filter housing to the fuel pump assembly. You can use a screw driver or suitable tool to remove the clip. Watch out or it will take off on you! After the housing is free, the fuel filter can be removed by slowly rotating the housing to free it from the o-rings that secure it. Remove the filter.
Reverse to reinstall.
Or, go the dealership and get a new gas line fitting that plugs into the gas tank fuel valve, add a hose, and do the same thing
NOTE: Both of these options require the ignition to be on to power the fuel pump.
Drain the gast tank. Remove the chrome bolt holding the dash to the tank. Lift up the dash and disconnect all the electrical connections. Remove the dash. Remove the seat. Remove the bolt at the bottom tank mount. Remove the nut and bolt at the bottom front of the tank. Disconnect the gas line on the left side bottom of tank. If the tank has a crossover line at the front, disconnect it. Lift the rear of the tank and block it up with piece of wood or something similar. Disconnect the electrical connection for the gas gauge under the left side of the tank. Remove the tank. Installation is reverse of removal. Don't forget to reconnect the fuel gauge and gas line, and crossover, if equipped. Good luck!
the fuel line leaving tank to the box is your fuel pump,it may not be working,take the line from the tank to pump and check to see if you have fuel flow through that line,if you do reconnect it and disconnect line leaving box to carb, push start button to see if you have fuel from pump,if not,check to see if there is a vacuum line connected to pump,it may be vacuum operated,you can also just run the fuel line from tank straight to carb to see if it will start,then you will know if its your fuel pump.
Turn the petcoc(k) off and remove the fuel line. Next, remove the seat - remove the rear seat first then the front. Under the nose of the seat you will see a large bracket with two bolts - remove the bolts. There is a plastic tray holding electronics that is also attached to this bracket - push the center pin of the fastener down and the plug will come out (push it up, insert and push the pin flush to re-install). Next, lift the back of the tank and bracket up a little and pull it straight back and the tank will lift right off. The front of the tank is held in place by two little pockets - you will see this after the tank is off.
First, remove the seat and disconnect the battery. Disconnect the hose at the bottom of the gas tank. Place an approved container on the ground and allow the gas to drain out of the tank until empty. Remove the console over the speedometer assembly.Remove the bolts connecting the tank to the frame. Remove the screw in front of the seat, at the back of the Harley-Davidson gas tank. Lift the tank up a little bit and disconnect the wiring harness from the tank. Lift the tank off the frame, taking care not damage the fuel line connections on the tank.
I'm not sure about the size of your fitting, but I found the same kind of plastic quick connect fittings at Lowes hardware store. most Hardware stores will have them if its the type I'm thinking of. There in the irrigation Department and most are compatible with fuels.See if they will work. Doug
first take off the seat when the front seat is removed you will clearly see 2 10 mm bolts holding down the tank... you must also disconnect the fuel lines at the fuel shut off switch, i plug them with golf tees perfect fit.
