rocroc I had no clip but my 1200s was one of the first delivered in europe. I complete my instructions.

1. Slide elastic under the ignition switch cover out of knob. No need to remove the ignition switch cover.
2. The tank should be near empty (maximum one third) if you go to the highest possible position (else gasoline leaks through the tank`s inlet).
3. Lift the tank a little bit standing on the left side of the bike. You need some strength to lift it. It is very tight with the cables on the left side of the air filter. Remove the tube of the tank ventilation (front left side). Now you can lift the tank till you reach the highest position or you fix it in the desired position with a wooden strip or something of that kind.
4. Don't forget to reconnect the tube of the tank ventilation while setting the tank back in place.

BTW: I`ve tried the Pipercross filter. What becomes immediately apparent: The bike gets noticeably louder. I uninstalled the filter but will give him a chance later. The airflow was in my eyes significant higher and I had at that time no RapidBike installed. At lower engine speeds the bike felt less powerful, at higher speeds more. But this is only my feeling, not proved on a dyno.

Did you notice a difference with the BMC filter on how the bike runs?
Honestly, Id like to say yes I noticed a difference but if I did I could be lying. Its very hard to tell. I took it up and down the street doing 1st and 2nd gear pulls into power wheelies. Its such a fast bike regardless so my brain probably wouldn't be able to tell if I gained a few hp or Tq.

*FYI* the vent and overflow hose for the fuel tank are held on with a clip and are very hard to get to. I found it easier to just lift the tank with them still connected to the tank and then just reroute them to their original location when I put the tank back on.

rocroc Just pull it.

marcof Thank you for the instructions. One more question about point 3)

Can you remove the tube for the tank ventilation just by pulling it or do you need to remove any clips ? I am asking because it is not clear from the service manual.

Thank you again.

marcof I was looking at this photo of your monster :

Is it really simple to lift the tank ?. Nothing to disconnect ?

I am also wondering the same thing. I have the WSM and it seems pretty straight forward. Im just worried about the part were I have to disconnect the fuel lines and lift the tank. Last thing I want to do is scratch my tank. I have a brand new BMC filter to put in it.
