    Hi I just got a relocation kit from h-d the otherday. Do I need to remove the tank to get to the wiring or can i just lift it up some. Also should I put a line on the end of the plug for pulling the wire back.
    Any help would be great
    Thanks Jeff

    When I did my 06 bob I had to take the tank off. There was no room to work unless the tank was off. The biggest pain is getting all the fuel out and then getting the fuel crossover line off one side. I ended up replacing the clamps on the crossover line with a pipe clamp.

    Other than the tank it was pretty straight forward. My only advice is be really careful when tightening the torx bolts. I almost stripped the big ones on the fork because my bit wasnt in 100% square.

    Follow the directions and the references in the service manual and you wont have any trouble, just work slow.

    It was very tight, but I was able to reach the wires on my 07 SB without removing the tank completely. I unbolted and raised the tank about 2-3 ".

    If you go this route remember to depressurize your fuel line before disconnecting. (disconnection of the fuel line is highly recommended because they tend to break very easily).

    Nothing but turn on the ignition.

    Be sure not to lift the tank up more than a few inches or you will break the plastic fuel line end under the tank.

    Have to replace the line. It disconnects (separates) right under the tank , maybe about 6" long (have to lift up the tank to see it) It's a short piece of fuel line with pressure fittings on it. You need to get it from the dealer, that's why I posted above not to lift the tank too high it breaks.
    Easy job to replace it but cost is about $45 for the line.

    No problems when restarting, it just pressurizes when you turn the ignition on by itself.
