No worries man... I'm pretty much the same, which is why you'll only find 1 how-to video on my channel...

I've torn down that bike so many times, and put it all back together... Could do so many videos... I just never bother. But everyone appreciates the pics and walk through on your how-to's... Takes time. Thanks! If someone were to ask me directly, I'd have no probs doin any how-to's, just never bother to do them when I'm trying to get things taken care of on the bike...


RIP Richard Bishop. You're a great friend and someone I will never forget.

Re: HOW TO: Remove fuel tank and air box 08-12

WAY too much work. i get the tank off, and remove the airbox lid and just the bolts on the throttle bodies. then "fold" the whole thing back so i can get to the tps and smog system.

Re: HOW TO: Remove fuel tank and air box 08-12

i would suggest individual paper towels into the intake ports for plugging those areas, a simple cover over the bike might not prevent everything from falling in.

also instead of a 2x4/stilt, if you have a light tank, you can use the stops on the fuel tank against the cross beam and it will hold itself up.

just a few things to add, overall nicely done.
