There's not enough room with the tank propped up? If not, remove the front bolt, prop the tank up, disconnect the fuel pump plug and fuel line, then remove the pivot bolt from the back of the tank. I'm sure there's another way to remove the tank from the back, probably a mount to the frame or subframe, but the pivot bolt will do the trick. Very simple once you stand back and look at it.

To raise the front of the tank, unscrew the bolt directly behind the triple tree that holds the forks. This bolt might be hidden if you have a steering damper, so you would have to take the damper off first.

To remove the tank, you also have to remove the hardware from the rear of the tank:
Use the key to pop the passenger seat.
There's 10mm bolt in the front of the compartment that you need to remove. Once that is out you can slide a latch over that is holding down the front seat.
Remove the front seat and it will reveal the rear mounting hardware of the tank.

Lift up the tank and un-plug the fuel lines and fuel pump.

I'm *pretty* sure that's not necessary for the 04, but not 100%.

I'm pretty sure these bolts are on the '05 but the '04 I don't know. Sorry. No biggie, just need the right size hex socket and an extention.
