Question about Harley Davidson FLSTC Heritage Softail Classic Motorcycles
To remove the fuel tanks from your Softail, first, remove the tripmeter reset knob and the nut that holds the console on. Work the console off the speedometer and set it aside. You must drain the fuel. First drain all the fuel you can from the petcock. Once all the fuel you can get out there is done, you'll have to take the "crossover fuel line" in the lower front of the tanks. There mey still be a substantial amount of gasoline left in the tanks so don't just pull the fuel line off, catch the fuel in a can. Once you get all the fuel out, there are three bolts on each tank, two in the front and one in the rear. There is also a "vent tube" at the top of the tanks that runs under the instrument panel.

SOURCE: I have a 1991 softtail.
Hi, have a look at the bottom front of the tank, you will see a hose going from one side to the other side tank, check and see where it is leaking, you might have the original crimp type clamps or the adjustable clamps. If its crimp type get a mechanic to help because you can do damage to the actual metal lines, if its adjustable try tightening them up, if not, screw the clamps off and replace with new ones, you can unscrew the new clamps all the way and gently stretch it open so it slips over the hose, make sure you lline the housing of the clamp and the flat part which screws in straight. If the hose is leaking than take the hose off at the on/off tap and drain fuel, will take a while but its the easiest way unles you want to syphon it out, when the fuel is very low than you can take the hose and clamps off at the front and replace them, straight forward. You can also park the front of the bike up a hill/or similar so the fuel sits at the rear end of the tank.
