    Thanks for the input. I was having trouble removing the fuel gauge. After further research i found that the gauge cable ends are installed with pins that can be removed from the male connector. It was a trick to remove but I finally was successful. Thanks again.

How to remove harley road king gas tank fuel 2005 model

I have a 2008 Road King Classic (and have had the tank off), so maybe they're similar.
Disconnect the negative lead of the battery.

My dash has a screw under the nose of the seat (which must be removed) and one in the front.
lift dash and unplug harness.

If you have a gas gauge in the left hand gas cap, underneath tank unplug it's connector.

The fuel line has a quick disconnect. Pull fitting, and line unplugs.
There is a check valve inside to keep gas from leaking, but it's a good idea to have a catch cup, just in case some residual fuel flows out.

From there, I have a bolt on each side of the front of the tank, one in the center rear, then lift it off.

I have a 2001 Harley Roadking 88 Twincam fuel injection system problem bike had been sitting for long time and fuel is leaking from fitting`s below fuel tank how do you R&R seals.

You need special o-rings from H-D parts and then need small screwdrivers or like tools to replace them. Often there is trouble with this and people end up with a new tank fitting which requires disassembly of the tank top, removal of the fuel pump and filer etc. etc.
