Nice layout, easy to follow . I found removing the lhs sub frame bolt made taking the tank out a lot easier.

Great guide and photos.
I always detach the fuel hoses BEFORE lifting the tank, to eliminate risk of catching rear subframe when lifting.
WIth the rear fairing removed there is easy access to the connectors.
Remember where the fuel connectors go...the FEED hose (right side of fuel rail) goes to the bottom fuel tank connector.
Ensure the special fuel-friendly Oring's on the connectors have a smear of lube before clicking into place.
Replace with new ones if damaged or a bit old.
Before bolting up fairings etc, run a power cycle to prime the fuel lines and visual check for no leaks.
Run a squirt of WD40 up the drain holes on left side..and down the drain holes at the top with the fuel cap open.
If these are blocked, run a length of wire up the holes to remove the crud that WILL build up.
