Removing fuel tank infill panels
« on: August 13, 2019, 10:39:10 PM »
Hi all, I've bought a genuine Triumph Tiger 800 Adventure tank bag for my '15 Xrx. To fit the rear strap appears to necessitate removing the infill panels and lifting the rear of the tank, and fitting the front straps appears to necessitate removing the front auxiliary panel. Can anyone tell me how difficult the panels are to remove, and more importantly put back correctly. :187:
Thanks in advance.

Very straightforward. A 5mm Allen wrench will do most, and the tank has two bolts on the sides. Raise the tank up at the rear  far enough to get access but be careful not to put tension on the fuel line and cables. Make sure the tank overflow tubes are replaced when you close up.
Laterally unstable unless moving.

Search YouTube for Muddy Sump.
He has a great video that shows how to remove the tank. His video is based on a 2011-2014 Tiger but the principle is the same.
