1 remove seats
2 remove front indicator pods, 3 alan bolts 2 outside one inside near forks
3 remove knee pads off tank, 1 alan left side 2 right side.
4 Disconnect the battery and remove. Remove battery box, 3 torx bolts, 2 at front into tank and 1 in bottom 12" extention required.
5 Tank held in place by 2 bolts, 1 Torx under battery box 12" extention again, 1 Chrome alan at front of tank.
6 On left side now remove the 3 rubber breath pipes make note which goes where, 1 electrical contector and 2 fuel quick release connectors use small screwdriver and lift up tab under neath. buy some new rubber O rings for these before re-fitting.
7 lift up rear of tank and remove electrical connector on right side.

Tank should now lift off, reverse to re-fit. use a good socket set with alan and male torx sockets.

Hope this helps

Only thing to remember is that petrol is heavy and the tank is a very awkward shape, so do it with as empty a tank as you can manage.
