If you have a Front and/or Rear stand, put the bike up on it. Make sure you are working in a well-ventilated place that is not sensitive to fuel vapors and spills. Although fuel spill should be very minimal (around 2 ounces), there will be a strong smell of fuel.

--- Siphon out of as much gas from the Fuel Tank as you can, collect it in a gasoline container... place in safe place. (You do not need siphon fuel out if you are not removing the fuel pump, which is located inside the tank. You only need to make sure that you have no more than 1/2 tank of fuel in there, and keep the tank propped-up - you should have little or no problems with fuel spilling then)

--- Remove the 3 allen bolts under the seat section on each side of the bike.
At the very tip of the tail fairing, you will need to gently "pop" off the tab (underneath) that connects it to the sub frame. There is no bolt to unscrew, just a tab you need to pop-away with slow, progressive pressure until come off. (this is for monoposto, may be slightly different for biposto)

--- The TAIL FAIRING, the SEAT and the FUEL TANK are all connected into one whole assembly. You will first need to separate the fuel tank. To do that, lift UP on the whole assembly and prop it up.
After you have propped-up the TAIL-SEAT-TANK assembly, remove the 17mm Bolt underneath the seat, in order to separate the TAIL-SEAT from the TANK.
Put the TAIL-SEAT Assembly in a safe place where it will not be damaged or scratched.

--- Now you can work exclusively on the Tank. The first thing you need to do is get an old towel or good size rag to place underneath. There will be a minimal amount of fuel spill, so put that on to protect your engine from getting fuel spilled on it.

--- There are 3 couplings underneath the tank that you need to remove. Two of them are fuel lines, the other one is a power line.
Disconnecting the fuel lines are a bit tricky. You need to just squeeze them and they will come off. If you have large fingers, call your S/O and make her do it ... or for lonely guys, you might have some luck with needle-nose pliers.

--- As you handle the tank from this point forward, keep the tank propped-up, to avoid any further spilling.

--- Next, disconnect the 2 breather hoses in front of the tank. You will need to squeeze the connector with pliersso that it comes loose. Do not use hard pressure, only slow progressive pressure. Nothing will spill out of these hoses.
Once you have disconnected all lines and hoses from the Tank, you are ready to remove the tank. The front of the tank is connected through two guide pins - all you need to do is just slide the tank towards the back end of the bike and it will come off. Have a ready area to put it down where it will not get scratched... make sure that the Fuel Pump is at the top end, so as to avoid any spilling.

To remove the Fuel Pump:

--- remove the 3 bolts that attach the Pump to the tank. Once removed, slowly pry-off the pump assembly away from the Tank with the help of progressive pressure on a flat head screwdriver. Try to do it evenly a little bit at a time, on each of the 3 sides... that makes it easier to remove.
--- You will need to slowly move the fuel pump assembly around to get the whole thing to come off the opening in the tank. There is an O-Ring there that is most likely damaged due to dis-assembly, so you will need to replace that. This is very important ... if not, it will most likely lead to a huge Fuel Spill (guess how I know that).
When putting the fuel pump back,, with NEW O-Ring, apply a liberal amount of grease, vaseline or some lubricant... if you do not apply enough lubricant, you will run a very high risk of: (1) HAVING A VERY DIFFICULT TIME REINSTALLING THE FUEL PUMP; (2) STRIPPING THE 3 CONNECTION SCREWS due to uneven flange and/or (3) DAMAGING THE O-RING.
When reinstalling the fuel pump assembly, make sure that you try to pop it in with progressive hand-force, and as evenly as possibly through out the 3 connection points. If you put enough lube, things should slide in with relatively little effort, and all you will need to do is just bolt the 3 screws back.

So that's it... to reinstall, just do everything Backwards!

Hope this helps

SOURCE: My 2005 Ducati Multistrada is hard to start in cold weather

That is not the fuel pump you hear, the pump is vacuum and the noise you hear is the ignition coming to life. Don't use any additives in your fuel, bad news, and just use the choke only, twisting the throttle does nothing till the engine starts. The choke is a slow speed jet. There is no way to check the air filter without pulling the seat and lifting the tank. But I have never found mine dirty, and I live on a dirt road. I call it the multistrada. 02 ,S4. Are you burning high test? 92 octane? How about keeping it warm or under cover? I think the fuel problem might be the dampness, humidity, etc, How about them spark plugs? Check them lately? I switched to autolites, they work a lot better than the champions. Hope this helps.

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.

03 H-D RK, will not start after short storage, gas is fresh,new plugs,fuel pump is working .

Hi Anonymous, remove a spark plug cable leaving both plugs in head, and insert a spare spark plug ground the threads and test for spark. Also try squirting starting fluid into the induction module to see if it's fuel related. That being said you might have upset the ECM when you replaced the battery, refusing to play with the other children and need to do a reset.

How to replace fuel pump on 2006 kawasaki z750

Order the parts diagram/ book from ebay on CD, print out the pages. (repair manual). My friend says all you have to do is remove the gas tank and there it is. You unscrew a few parts. take i out. You have to Drain the gas into a bucket using a piece of silicon tubing (think of draining an aquarium as a kid).

Unplug/ remove the battery.

then you remove the fuel tank. There'll be residual fuel in the connecting lines, drain those too.

Unscrew the fuel pump.

Put the new one in.

I have to do the same thing, but am procrastinating.

wish there's someone else to do it for me. lol.

How to repair leaking fuel lines under the tank

Okay, prepare to get some gas on you. You need to drain the gas
You'll need:

1 pair hemostats or hose pincher
1 pair of wire cutters
1 screwdriver phillips or flat head
1 nut driver 1/4 inch or 5/16 inch
New fuel line. (cut 1 two inch piece and put the bolt in one end making a plug) = 2 inch plug
Hose clamps.
1 Bolt that will fit inside fuel line.(make line plug)

Pinch either side of the fuel line with hemostats. Cut the factory clamp off and pull the hose off. Put the 2 inch plug on the tank,and that will stop the gas from coming out. put a hose clamp on it if you want so it don't leak.
Now put a gas can under the pinched line and unpinch it and let the gas drain out of that tank.
When done draining , cut that hose off the tank and put it on the other side where that plug is. Remove the plug and put that line on and let that tank drain.
Once the tanks are drained., Just cut the hose to length and replace, using new hose clamps and new fuel line.
If your quick enough you can swap the hoses out without draining the tank.
You will get gas on you no matter what.

Sludge in gas tank, 1996 gsx r750

Unless you are confident the "sludge" can be dissolved by some additive your only option is remove the gas tank and reverse-flush the pump. I'm not even sure that is possible on your particular pump. If the pump is acting up I would at least remove it and get as much sludge out of it as I could. If the pump is not acting up I would remove the tank and rinse out as much sludge as possible and install an inline filter before the carburetors to keep an eye on it. Use good clamps and check it often for leaks. After you are sure the sludge is out of your tank you can remove the filter.

2000 Yamaha R6 leaking gas - coming out of winter storage. Ran perfect when put away. It seems that gas is leaking from upper half of the bike - the tank is extremely full of gas at this point. Any...

this is a carb model yes? if you stored bike with fuel tap on then it could be your carb floats stuck. there is nowhere on the engine itself that gas would be going. is it dripping from the tank? fuel petcock? fuel pump (probably under the tank) ethanol in gas can completely screw up pumps.

if it's a carb problem shut off gas, remove aircleaner let fuel in carbs evaporate for a week. get some Berrymans B12 spray carb cleaner and get a bunch of it in there, it will break down the gum/varnish from the gas. also get Berrymans B12 fuel additive and put some in the tank. re-assemble and see how it goes.
