Pretty simple with a few steps. Lay a towel on the handlebars. Remove the three dash/speedo bolts and lay the speedo on the towel (you can pull out the wiring bundle a bit and disconnect the plug if you want to completely remove the speedo, but it's not necessary). Remove the seat. Remove the long tank bolt in front of the seat. Disconnect the green wiring plug under the seat near the tank. Turn off the fuel. Disconnect the fuel line from the tank. Grab the tank front and back in the center and lift up slightly on the rear and then pull the tank back. Sometimes I have to wiggle it a little. Good luck!
