I am changing fuel tanks, and i just went to pull the bottom plate, (which has the fuel pump etc mounted on it) and after removing all the nuts and lifting the plate and seal, the assembly is catching, and does not want to come further. I have tried sliding it around from side to side but no luck. I don't want to break anything. Any insights?
you have to tilt it. its tricky and a tight fit, but it will come (thats what she said). the pump is long and point towards the rear of the bike. its at a 90 degree angle in there, so you have to slowly tilt it till the plate is vetical and the pump is in line with the opening.
