    Hi , a little help from you guys, my 2011xrunner is at the dreaded 32k mark!. My question is can I remove the tank without dismantling the whole faring?? And do I even need to. To gain access to the rear plugs , and no I'll be buggerd if I'm taking it too the dealer for such a mundane basic task. :084:

    Don't blame you, once you have access to the heads it's a relatively easy job as long as you have the valve lifter tool.

    'fraid I can't help you over the fairing though.

    Good luck, let us know how you get on.

    Sorry m8, misunderstood. Thought you were going to do the valve shim check yourself.

    The plugs are a bugger to get at.  :087: :173:

    Hi, You can. Remove the seat, then remove the bolt at the back of the tank and the two bolt in the front. You can then slide the tank backwards and lift it.

    Just remove the bolts, 2 screws and slide back! That's fantastic. After 1/2 day dismantling the fairing  etc. Does this apply to 2015 and after Crossrunners as well?

    I can only presume. But I have done it on several bikes from different brands.

    Actually I think I unsrewed the complet hinge on the CR 2011. Så that two screw at the back to.
    The tank will still be attached, so have some cloth or something ready to pup under the tank once you lift it.
    While woring I re attach the hinge and suspend the front of the tank from a wire i the celling.
