    You could have locked the insert in place with red loctite, then grind/sand it flush so you wouldn't have had to bend the brackets.

SOURCE: removing harley davidson ultra classic gas tank

Drain the fuel either by siphening or removing the cross over tube at the front of the tank and letting it drain that way or just block off those cross over lines and leave the fule in the tank for removal.

0) remove seat
1) drain fuel
2) undo cross over line (bottom front of gas tank.
3) shut off pet **** and remove fuel line from pet ****.
4)there should only be 2 bolts holding the tank on, one at the top front of the tank and one at the back of the tank.

All in all a pretty easy (but possibloy messy) job.

It's 3 stage. HD vivid black base (you can use PPG 9700 or similar) with midcoat HD part #98628DHD. Two medium coats seems to be ok for matching factory parts. Any topcoat will be fine. I don't like the HD topcoat and opt for PPG 2055, 2021 or Shop Line JC620.

How to remove seat with backrest harley electraglide


Hi Anonymous, seat removal can range from the simple and obvious to the complex and baffling for the novice new Harley Davidson owner. Seems like the more expensive the bike is the harder it is to remove the seat. So let's start with the most expensive. 99% of all Harley seats have a male tounge in the front that slides into a female reciever that is either bolted or welded to the frame just behind the fuel tank. For this reason when ever you are removing a seat you must always slide it backwards 3-5 inches. Next they may may have a bolt on each side usually under a flap on the seat. A single screw can secure it to the rear fender or it may have a bracket with two studs secured by nuts or knobs to fasten the rear portion of the seat. If you have a pillion pad or passenger seat that snugs up against the front seat there can be a screw securing the two to the rear fender, you have to get your hand in between the two seats and force seperation of seat material to see and gain acess to the screw. Finally there is the rear seat screw in the back that is the caboose of seat fasteners, usually a large chrome bracket, that screws into the rear fender. Care must be exercised in covering this shinny bauble with your hand during the sliding back procedure so as to NOT scratch the tour pak. So when all the hidden and mysterious fasteners have been removed, it's lift up in the rear, slide backwards a few inches and bingo you have mastered the impossible. Good luck.

The vent between the tanks is located under the tank panel. The fuel vent is in the right side gas cap. Did you check to make sure fuel was flowing out of the right tank while you had the crossover hose off?

04 ElectraGlide standard new brake pads rub on rotor all the time


nothing to worry about unless it's causing some serious drag. it's probably that you never noticed that your brakes made some noise in the past. could just be the pads you had installed. every bike i've noticed has the pads running on the rotors, with new pads you notice the sound more until they wear in a little.
