New Fuel Tank

Got a dent on my fuel tank and I'm about to order a new one, has anyone does this on here? is it pretty easy to remove the pump and everything from the old tank and install it in the new tank? any help would be great. Also if you recommend just buying extras of any parts or anything that would be a great help. thank you everyone!

I scratched my tank while installing my Phone mount. Super upset.

I bought another tank as a spare. Not gonna install it until the current tank gets beat up some more.

there's other sections of the service manual that talk about checking your fuel tank pressure and that it should be operating at 50psi and what not, all that stuff scares me a little that ill try to put it together and it wont work properly because I'm missing some special tool. that section does make it seem simple though, I guess I'll just have to try it out and see what happens.

You might want to buy a fuel tank cover instead of a new tank.

No special tools needed to swap the fuel pump from one tank to the other.


You wouldn't need to check the fuel pressure if your bike ran fine before the swap.


But you do need to depressurize the fuel line before disconnecting the line...pictures and instructions for the whole procedure of depressurizing, opening the line quick disconnect and re-hooking everything up is covered in Section 7 pages 5 and 6

Whats the dent look like? Is the metal creased or the paint cracked? If it's not too bad a PDR guy could probably fix it pretty quick.
