Why does the orange clip need to be removed from the tank?

WTBscrambler. The orange clip secures the rubber fuel line to the metal outlet tube on the tank.

It doesn't, see post 32 for a close-up look at these fittings. If you have fat fingers it might be more difficult to operate the two release buttons though, in which case removal of the safety clip will help. On cars, where there's a lot more room, mechanics often use special pliers for these quick-release fittings:

Fantastic write up :0) In this post there was a reference to the torque setting for the torx bolts on the cam cover. Can someone clarify what that torque setting should be?

Older manuals specify 10 Nm (7.37 Ft/lbs). That figure has been revised to 14 Nm (10.32 Ft/lbs).

Thank you for your previous post! Your 2009 Post is going to be of great assistance to me now in installing my new Driving Light for my 2011 America. 1st step: Remove the gas tank. Thanks!

Cheers

I think member Pauljp's video showing the tank removal procedure for EFI Bonnies makes a good addition to this thread. It's on a link in post 1 here:

Hi great post - worked like charm. The fuel line connector was a little tricky but other wise straight forward. Getting rid of all that air junk off the top of the engine makes it all look cleaner. However in my kit I had 4 black plastic nipples for putting over 1/8 tube I guess - but I did not disconnect anything that needed them and can find no instructions as to what they are for?

Bike runs great and no popping on the overrun.

I don't think this was mentioned in the thread anywhere, but does anyone recall what size hex head is used for the cam cover bolts? I'm getting ready to change the gasket and washers/rings and will need to get the appropriate head for my torque wrench. Also, any recommendations on what to use to help seal the gasket?

Thanks!

T30 Torx-head bolts. The gasket is fitted dry. Some people use a smear of silicone sealant but if the bolt seals are in good condition there's no need for any.
