Do so very carefully, or you run the risk of damaging or ruining it because of its age.

Drain the gas, if any.

Identify where it mounts on the frame and how it is fastened (nuts, bolts, screws, etc). Apply liberal doses of a product called PB B'laster which you can get at almost any auto parts store (do not use WD-40 or anything else, B'laster is the best for this kind of thing).

This is important: Spray it several times thoughout the day, then let it sit overnight! Use the correct size tool, carefully and without excessive force, and if you're lucky, the nuts or bolts will come right off without breaking. Do NOT force them. Apply a second treatment if necessary, it won't hurt.

I Have a 1997 Royal star. How do I remove the

There are two bolts, one on each side, from the underside front of the tank to mounting holes on the frame just behind the fork pivot, they require an allen wrench to loosen. A third mount, a bolt behind the tank, under the front seat (yes, you'll have to remove the seat) can be loosened with a small adjustable wrench. Remove the trim plate from around the gas cap (4 allen bolts), disconnect the harness (two wires), disconnect the fuel line from the petcock (TURN THE PETCOCK TO "OFF" FIRST), and the tank's ready to go...

How do I change the gas tank on a 2006 Yamaha Royal Star Tour Deluxe?

You will find it better with a manual. Mine is not the same model as yours, but it should be similar. Lift the seat, there should be two bolts, one on either side of the tank at the back, take them both off, and the same at the front of the fuel tank, note there are some variations, but adjust to them. The tank should be loose, lift it enough to disconnect the fuel line, after you have turned it off, and as you lift it off disconnect the electrical wires via the plug-in clip.
