Removing/replacing Fuel tank--what needs replacing?
I'll be pulling my nice undamaged tank and replacing it with an old one that has a bit of suction damage--the last owner got a bolt stuck in the fuel line during a repair and the suction pulled it in a bit.
In any case, it'll ease my mind to ride for 6 weeks on a tank that already has a bit of "character" and can handle minor drops without messing up its newness.
What parts need replacing when replacing the tank? On the Bike Bandit 919 Fuel Tank Parts Fiche, I've noted that I likely need:
5: FILTER, FUEL RETURN,AC 2AC 227271-001
8: FILTER, FUEL, AC 2AC 227510-001
21: GASKET, BASE,A AC 1470183-001
36: WASHER (12MM) (12MM),A AC 237675-001
Anything else I need? The bike has 7600 miles in oft-dusty conditions, so I figure it can't hurt to replace the fuel filter.
