    When I remove the gas lines, I am guessing the lines will leak?
    Do I first have to empty the tank and what will the process be. All I really want to do is just chance the spark plugs.
    I never thought it would consist of so much work.

    Im going to need to drop my fuel tank in my 1986 camry. I have never done it before but I am capable. So If anyone knows how to do this please help. I dont want to break anything. First Im going to open...

    First disconnect the negative terminal of the battery. Next left out the back seat. It is spring clipped in with two clips on the bottom left and right front of the seat. Pull clips forward and lift seat front up. I hooks in at the back so rotate the front up to unhook and lift out. In the middle under the seat is the gas gage float. Disconnect the wire connector and remove floor cover with Philips screwdriver. Then remove float from tank. This step must be done so you do not break the wire to the gas gage float. It is also the best place to siphon off the gas in the tank. Then you can remove the tank. You may have an exhaust shield to remove. The tank is held in with two straps hinged in the front and bolted in the back. Loosen the brake line clamps attached to the straps so that the clamp will slip when the tank straps are hinged down. There are several hoses and a gas connect to open. Open hose clamps. Disconnect fuel pump connector at back of tank. The fill hose needs to be worked off as you pull the tank down. There is one hose on the top back edge of the tank that needs disconnect after the tank is tipped down some. There is a rubber/plastic tank holder connected to the back flange of the gas tank. Remove the two corner screws but leave the guard connected to the straps. Remove the two strap bolts and hinge down to pull it out and disconnect all hoses. Mark with tape or some mean which hose when were.

    How to remove gas tank

    Turn the petcoc(k) off and remove the fuel line. Next, remove the seat - remove the rear seat first then the front. Under the nose of the seat you will see a large bracket with two bolts - remove the bolts. There is a plastic tray holding electronics that is also attached to this bracket - push the center pin of the fastener down and the plug will come out (push it up, insert and push the pin flush to re-install). Next, lift the back of the tank and bracket up a little and pull it straight back and the tank will lift right off. The front of the tank is held in place by two little pockets - you will see this after the tank is off.

    I hope this helps!

    I need to change the spark plug on my 1996 suzuki savage , I have removed the seat as well as the 2 bolts that hold the gas tank under that seat ,having trouble from there it won't lift off help please

    I took mine off last night for the first time. Once you remove the 2 bolts at the back of the tank then you have to work it loose. generally pull up and back on the rear end of the tank, and then up and to the left as it starts to loosen. The reason you need to pull to the left is that the fuel selector valve will start to interfere with the throttle cable once the tank moves backward, and twisting the back of the tank towards the left will let the valve go around the cable. Take a look and you'll see what I mean. Took a while working it back and forth to get it off, but I finally did. Some people recommend you drain the tank and remove the fuel valve as an alternative but I didn't need to do that.

    How do you remove the gas tank from the tw200 2003. I have got the bolts that held it closer to the back but i cant figure out how to undue the front.

    There are two seat bolts under the seat that must be removed. Obviously, if the underside of the fender is covered in mud, you'll have to clean it first. A metric socket works best to remove the bolts.

    After removal of the seat bolts, lift the back of the seat, then pull straight back; a plastic flange on the front of the seat hooks under the tank, and so you have to pull it backwards to remove it.

    With the seat off, removing the battery is pretty easy. A rubber strap holds the battery down; unhook and remove it. Unscrew the lead wires and unhook them (negative first), then pull the battery out.

    Install a replacement battery by reversing these steps. Yamaha recommends charging a new battery before installing it.

    How 2 change a battery on a 1999 tdm 850

    Hello! I used to own a 1991 XTZ (Off road version of your TDM) And the battery if I remember is behind the right side panel, these are a push fit so be careful when pulling them off. Gently pull towards yourself one edge at a time, If not right side try left. You'll be investigating under your seat too as there should be a tool kit in your tail piece to help remove battery.
    Merry Christmas ans remember push the Blue FixYa button!
