2012 Bonneville Tank Removal Video

I made a quick video today of how I remove the fuel tank on my 2012 Bonneville.
I just thought this might help out the new riders who are interested in working on their bikes.
I hope you enjoy it.

Excellent job, the more we see things the easier it all gets. I know I'd give the Golden Walnut Award to someone filming a successful cam cover gasket installation!

Thank you Pauljp. I have never taken the tank off of my Street Triple because I didn't know how to remove the fuel line. It is the same as on the Bonnie. Very good video. It would be nice to have a video shop manual for our bikes for free. By the way I have the same bike and love it.

THANK YOU!!! I've gone to remove my tank twice. Once when I removed the SAI and another time to remove the solenoid bracket I had left on the top frame tube. I read posts on how to disconnect the fuel line but just couldn't get it done because the procedure wasn't clear to me. Before your video, it wasn't clear what I needed to squeeze. So, I used towels and styrofoam bricks to prop the tank high enough to gain access to the fasters involved. Next time I'll be ready. Again - thanks!

Jim
