Questions specific to Daytona 600/650:

Can the gas tank be pivoted on a rear "hinge" like some sportbikes, without disconnecting fuel lines, or does it have to be removed entirely to get access to the voltage regulator?

If the tank is fully removed, does all the gas drain out the fittings?

I've got a full tank, is why I ask.

Anybody know more about this? Dealers charge for free junk fittings if customer does the work?!

I should have known! I think easy swap the K&N airfilter in no problem but as I was tilting back my fuel tank I hear snap and see gas running all over. The red plastic elbow fitting broke off inside the valve fuel split everywhere. Now no bike for the long week-end. My dealer small shop closed so he could go to the Triumph meeting. Danm.
