I think the manufacturers need to start making their workshop manual texts more realistic. For example, your average Honda manual might say... "After turning off the fuel tap and disconnecting the fuel line from the tap, gently remove the fuel tank and...." etc etc. You'd think that the first two steps would take about 10 seconds. The real life manual would read something like this: Turn off the fuel tap. Locate the fuel line from the left hand side. Using a torch, locate the fuel line from the left hand side. Insert fresh batteries in your torch, then using the torch, locate the fuel line from the left hand side. Pinch open the retaining fuel line circlip. Suck the blood off your fingers, then loosen the retaining circlip with pliers. Using torch and pliers, retrieve the fuel line circlip from between the carburettors, cam chain tensioner, fuel tank breather pipe, and wiring loom. Disconnect the fuel line from the fuel tap. Suck blood off your fingertips, then disconnect the fuel line from the fuel tap with pliers. Holding the torch in your mouth, disconnect the fuel line from the fuel tap whilst holding the plier handles with your right hand and the plier jaws with your left hand. Using your torch, check the garage floor for dislodged carburettor balance pipe plug from slipped pliers. Apply first aid to redback spider bites. Replace carburettor balance pipe plug. Gently and patiently wiggle the fuel line from the fuel tap. Turn off the fuel tap. Move your bike outside and hose off petrol from the engine; this may present a fire hazard if not attended to. Now you are ready to remove the fuel tank.
