That is correct. You may have to take parts of the rear fender off and the brake pedal as well.

All the 4 cylinder Wings are the same in that the tanks come out the rear, after the wheel and swingarm are removed first.

The GL1000 tank does NOT come out of the top!

The swingarm does NOT need to come off.

It comes out of the rear after removing the rear wheel, fender, plastic inner fender, rear brake and master cylinder, battery box, and the fuel petcock.

The fake tank framemust beloosened enough to lift it over the refueling neck while pulling the tank out through the rear. The bolts are toward the bottom (I think 4 of them).

After removing all of the above and the mounting bolt, gently work it out with a side-to-side and up-and-down motion while moving wires and hoses out of the way. Don't forget to loosen the wires going to the sender on top of the tank.

Thank you for the info. I have a leak comming down the back inner fender, and I think it is either the hose or the connection to the tank. Old 75 gl. Hey, want to come up to Everett and take out a tank for me?:cheeky1::shock:
