I disconnected the wires of the rear light, unbolted it, and off it went, along with the tail....

As I have already said, I know nothing about fixing bikes.

So I had to come up with a clever plan so I could re-build the bike without any part or bolt missing...

The first thing is taking photographs! A lot of them!

The next and most important is the method that you will see now.



First, I write a small label with the place of the part I just removed

(e.g. here I write: "The two bolts that bolt the tank underneath the seat")

For the cables and the small hoses, i stick small labels with a mini-description of it's place or it's use...

On the cable connections I use numbers, the same number on both ends...

Next was the tank!

It gave me a hard time until I figured it out.

Underneath has a small valve, you can close the flow from there.

Some fluid managed to run out, but it didn't smell like gas...


Closed the gas flow valve and removed the small lines...
