First remove the seat by inserting the key, turning and then lifting the seat and sliding backÖ.:

 

Then remove the two 10MM bolts that hold the tank down:

 

After removing those bolts I used a box to prop up the tank so I could get my hands under there to disconnect the rest of the connections:

 

A view of the fuel pump from under the backside of the tank:

 

Now locate the fuel pump lead and disconnect it.  Itís on the left side of the bike:

 

Like so and then route the end of the connector under the wire harness:

 

Now on the right side of the bike is the fuel hose quick connect.  Take you flat head screwdriver and slide the red piece out until it has stops:

 

Like so:

Now pull the fuel line connection off the nipple.  You may need to give it a good tug, but make sure your free hand is stabilizing the tank:

 

Now remove the fuel overflow line, I just used needle nose pliers to pinch the end of the clamp and slid the line off:

Hereís what the clamp looks like, it is rather small:

 

Now youíre ready to pull the tank.  I grabbed the front and rear of the tank and simply pulled up to remove and then move it out of the way:

 

As you can see I set it on some pieces of scrap wood.  I didnít want to set it on the fuel pump for fear of damage:

 

Ok, here what we look like with the tank removed:
