Main fuse harness

In the process of replacing the main fuse harness. Is it necessary to remove the gas tank to access alternator connection? :112:

Good question,.....my guess is that maybe you could get to those connections just by lifting the rear of the tank a bit, that may give you enough clearance to get to them??

Compared to every other bike I've owned, removing the tank on this one is a pain in the rear, I don't like having to remove the battery/cutting power to the system for a start, don't like the bolt/washer arrangement on the fuel line,....why couldn't they have put a quick release connector there instead?

Then you could have a bit of petrol dripping from 4 hoses when you lift the tank off the bike!.....I've since lathed up some bungs to stop that happening.

Good luck, let us know how it actually went in the end.
