The Wide Glide tank is a one piece tank unlike the Softail series that has two halves. First, drain the tank by loosening the petcock or by taking the "crossover" hose off the lower front of the tank. Do not smoke or have any open flames when doing this. I can't do it without gasoline going everywhere. If your bike is carbureted, loosen the petcock to drain the tank. If it's fuel injected, I don't know what to tell you because a bike this new is out of expertise range. I work on older bikes.

Remove the seat by removing the bolt at the rear of the seat, lift up and pull back on the seat to get it off.

Once you have the tank drained, you must remove the dash. Take the small screw out of the trip reset knob if your speedo is equipped with one. Take the bolt or nut off the dash that is right in the middle and lift the dash cover off the speedo and igniton switch.

Now, the tank is held on by four bolts. One at the top front of the tank under the dash, one at the lower front of the tank and two back on a tab just in front of the nose of the seat.

I don't think you have to take the switch and speedo off. The tank should come off from here. If not, you'll be able to see what you need to do to get it off from here. Like I said, I work on earlier models and I'm not sure of all the changes Harley has made.

Good Luck

    Here again, fuel injection is out of my expertise range. I deal with carb equipped bikes only. Mostly what I work on is the older Shovelheads and Evo powered machines.

    What I do know is that the fuel injected models have a fuel pump where the carb equipped models don't. The fuel system is a "recirculating" type system. It should purge any air in the lines when you turn the switch on. Listen for the pump to start running and then turn off once the system comes up to pressure. I'd give it a couple of minutes to run before I tried to start the engine. I think you'll be alright.

    Good Luck

Wow, my 2000 wide glide only had two, so I'm afraid you should not trust anyone but the dealer. Just give them a call and maybe they will answer your question. If they tell you to bring it in call a different dealer.
