Hi,

I have in my CBR954 very scratchy tank, and I would like to re-paint it or anyway polish it and I need instructions how to remove tank (without braking anything :smilebig: )

Actually I haven't check anything on it yet, but in owners manual, there is mentioned when you move tank on "service" position (lifted up) don't remove it ???

So good advise is needed, thanks :huh:

I'm getting ready to replace mine too. Best advice is get hold of the service manual which shows the whole process with pictures.

Any additional insight would be appreciated though...

If I get it done anytime soon I'll post my experiences.

DRAIN/SIPHON gas out of tank.

Take seat off.

Take the two bolts off the front of the tank.

Lift the tank up and disconnect connections on the bottom.

Lay the tank back down and under the seat there are 4 bolts holding it down to the subframe, take those out and you're done.

Take the body panels off also and don't forget the rear through bolt. Loosen it before lifting up the tank.

Oh yeah, the black ones with a screw up front and one to the tank.


Maybe my through bolt is already loose, but I've never had to loosen anything any bolts.....which one are you reffering too, the one that the bracket swivels on a little bit??

The shop manual mentions something about disconnectin the hoses from the correct locations...didn't look like it mattered to me but followed the structions in the manual anyway.

I recall some poor soul trying to remove the bolt on the mounthing bracket on the rear of the tank...instead of the 4 bolts on the subframe! :rotfl:

replae the fuel filter while you got all apart!!!!!!!

It comes off easy but a bit messy if you don't siphon all of the gas out :thumbd: Removeing the rear hindge bolt is a Bit of work better to undo the ** 4 ** rear bolt's and the brackett.I have found it a bit easier if you have a freind hold the tank sideways and to one side of the bike while you undo the screw's in the bottom of the tank to remove the hoses/fuel pump/filter. After you remove the screw's from the underside of the tank carefully draw the the whole pump unit out in one peice without detaching the hoses. ** holding the tank on it's side help's in retaining any gas left over in the tank instead of spilling it all over :thumb:
Hope this help's.
