@ cjpeltz. If you have the dealership do the work it will cost you an arm and a leg. You would not believe how easy it is to remove the gas tank. On my 2004 America we are talking like 5 bolts and loosen the fuel hose clamp. 1 bolt to remove the pillion seat, 1 bolt to remove the main seat, 2 or 3 allen bolts to remove the chrome cover around the gas filler, and one bolt to remove the gas tank, then loosen the clamp on the fuel hose at the carb and pull the tank back. You'll have to remove the fuel vent hose once you pull the tank off and that's it. very very easy. It's no kidding a 15 to 20 minute job with the right tools depending on how many times you stop to take a sip of beer. Only issue is, you buy that tank you were eyeballing and then you have to buy the matching fenders as well. Front Fender is easy to change out, The rear however will require a little more work and a motorcycle jack. Only reason I know is I have torn my bike down and am in work on putting custom fenders on my bike.
Some people are like slinkies. They're not much to look at, but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
