Hello - does anyone have detailed instructions (pics, video, written) on how to remove the fuel tank? I saw a how-to video on YouTube recently and for some reason am unable to find it now. The owners manual simply says "See a Harley-Davidson dealer to perform air filter service". Umm no. Can't be too difficult - I know there's a wire harness near the seat that needs to be disconnected, and of course the fuel line, but I'm not sure where fasteners, etc. are.

Hoping it's nearly as easy as removing the fuel tank on bigger H-D's (which is super simple). Wanting to remove mine to access and swap out the air filter - bought my bike preowned and the previous owner gave me a brand new K&N washable type filter for it.

Thanks in advance.

It is my understanding you cannot re-use one of the hose clamps that has to be removed in order to remove the tank (i.e. you have to cut it off). Does anyone know what size hose clamp is required to replace it?

The hose clamp they are talking about is a fuel vent line. I just used a spring hose clamp. Make sure the rubber air intake stacks are positioned correctly on the bottom of the air box ( 2 semi circle cut outs for mounting bolts and one flat spot ) The rear intake was about 20 degrees off from where it should have been, I think it was still sealing ok against the injector intake housing.

K&N filters require oiling at fitment. The air filter set up on the Pan America is flat weird and to me the filter is working in reverse of every air filter known to man, but hey. Harley know best. 🇺🇲 More induction noise is never a bad thing and I live and ride in Scotland where dust is something that only ever gathers on ornaments. ☮

What size (diameter) spring hose clamp did you use? Nothing worse than getting in the middle of a project and finding out you don't have what you need. :)
