Getting ready for a 2 week ride in September with Brenda and our 2 SSS. This is the first bike Iíve had with a clutch cable in 20 years, so my past practice of zip-tying a new clutch cable along side the existing one seemed like a good idea (and still does).
Without first reading this thread or any others in the forum about removing the fuel tank (yes, foolish move on my part), I proceeded to tilt it up by removing the bolt next to the key (the same as used to do on the ST bikes) but to my surprise, the fuel lines are in place. I decided to just put the tank back and read the instructions (a crazy idea I know).
When I lowered the tank, there is too much slack in the fuel lines and I fear they will pinch or crimp. The bike seems to run ok, but the lines are not as they should be due to the extra slack when the tank is lowered back into its original position.
So, learned SS co-owners and sage members of this forum, how do I put the fuel lines back in place and lower the tank to avoid any issues with the lines?
