Remove the panel on the tank under the dash. Lift slightly to determine if fuel float is attached to panel if the fuel level is attached that will have to be taken off. If not panel can be lifted enough to cut the ear clamp attached to the fuel pressure valve. slide the hose off. I raise the rear tire on my bike to make sure the residual gas in the tank was at the front of the tank. Remove the fuel line from the quick disconnect at the small end of the tank. Loosen the quick disconnect from the tank and pull out fitting and hose as one unit. Having worked in tanks before, when you insert the new hose into the tank, push it in so that you can grab the end that will connect to the pressure relief. i used a string and a screw from the panel to hold it up while tightened the quick disconnect in the tank. Once that is tightened, you can now reattach the end to the pressure relief. I used a mini stainless steel worm clamp. If you have the pliers for the ear clamp you can used that.

The reason you can't connect the pressure relief end first is, the quick relief end and the new hose comes pressed together. The hose has to be loose so it can twist while tightening the quick disconnect.
Thanks, my 07 manual has it more complicated as you noted in your previous post.
