I haven't worked on an '09 model but all the Softails I ever worked on had two tanks. To remove them, first remove the dash and any thing covering the "tank gap". There are three bolts on each tank half, two in the front of the tank and one at the rear. There is also two hoses that connect the two tanks to each other. One in front that is the fuel crossover. Make sure you drain as much fuel out of the tanks as possible before removing this line. Still there will be some gasoline spill out so don't be smoking while doing this job. The other hose is a vent hose at the top of the tanks under the dash. It just vents the left tank to the right one since the left tank gas cap does not have a vent built into it. If it did, gasoline would spill out when the tanks were full and you put the bike on the side stand. You may not have to remove both tanks to install your bars. I don't know where the handle bar wiring harness connects under the tanks.

I came across this service bulletin that you will find helpful- I do believe the VCF is above the fuel tank; but if you call any diy auto parts store like NAPA, AutoZone, Pep Boys, etc.or even the parts department at Dodge, for pricing, they'll tell you exactly where it is located and they may even print out the schematic for you. Best wishes on your project. BTW, did you're "check engine" light go on? Did you get an OBD-II fault reading? Or fail an emissions test? Just curious for my own knowledge.

DISCUSSION:
Customer may report that the vehicle is hard to fill with fuel or that the fuel pump nozzle
shuts off repeatedly while trying to fill vehicle.
This customer complaint can occur due to a number of different causes. The fuel tank is
the least likely cause of this condition. The following Diagnostic procedure can be used to
diagnose the issues.

DIAGNOSIS:
1. Is the vehicle a LX/LE/LC/L2?
a. Yes >> proceed to Step #2
b. No >> proceed to Step #4
2. Idle the vehicle 60 to 90 seconds upon stopping.
3. Does tank refill properly?
a. No >> proceed to Step #4
b. Yes >> Inform the customer to idle the vehicle for 60 to 90 seconds upon stopping if
vehicle was driven aggressively. This is due to the fact that on the LX/LE/LC/L2 the
fuel tank is a unique saddle tank design and needs 30 to 60 seconds while the
engine is running to level the fuel in both half's of the fuel tank. Allowing the vehicle
to idle for this amount of time will let the fuel pump transfer fuel to the left side tank,
opening the control valve and allowing normal fuel filling.
4. Disconnect the vapor recirculation tube at the fuel tank.
5. Attempt to refill fuel tank.
6. Does tank refill properly?
a. Yes >> Proceed to Step #7
b. No>> Proceed to Step #11.
7. Reconnect the vapor recirculation tube at the fuel tank.
8. Disconnect the other end of the vapor recirculation tube at the fuel filler tube.
9. Attempt to refill fuel tank.
10. Does tank refill properly?
a. Yes >> Replace fuel filler tube.
b. No >> Replace the vapor recirculation tube.
11. Disconnect the control valve to EVAP canister tube at the fuel tank.
14-001-09 REV. A -2-
12. Reconnect the vapor recirculation tube at the fuel tank.
13. Does tank refill properly?
a. No >> Replace Fuel Tank.
b. Yes >> Proceed to Step #14.
14. Reconnect the control valve to EVAP canister tube at the fuel tank.
15. Disconnect the control valve to EVAP canister tube at the EVAP canister.
16. Attempt to refill fuel tank.
17. Does tank refill properly?
a. Yes >> Blockage is in the EVAP Canister, or ESIM, or Clean air hose (ESIM vent
hose), or filter. Diagnose appropriately.
b. No >> Replace the control valve to EVAP canister tube.

I purchased a replacement side view mirror for a 2010 Silverado. I need to remove the door panel to get to the wiring connection How do I remove the door panel?


Try with this procedure...
1) Start with opening the driver's side door and lowering the window. Remove lock lever (1A).
2) Using a plastic pry bar [slotted screwdriver], slowly pry plastic cover to reveal screw.

CAUTION: These plastic covers are fragile and break easily. Be very gentle in disengaging them.

Want to remove stock fuel gauge to install digital recessed one. Need instructions on how to remove the stock gauge from 2008 FXSTB Night Train


Not being very familiar with the later models, I can tell you that if the gauge still sits in the left tank filler bung, it's just held in by a rubber right. Carefully rock the gauge side to side while lifiting up on it. It will come out. Be careful as the wires that connect it to the sending unit are short and you don't want to damage them. Your new digital unit should use the original tank sensor. Good Luck!
