I think you just need to disconnect the hose, any plugs, and obviously mounting points. . . .
Fuel pump should just be bolted on with a few bolts. I'd imagine not too hard at all.

You'll likely take a gas bath, but its pretty easy.

The pump is at the bottom of the tank with a single line that runs to the fuel rail. Disconnect this line, and fuel still comes out (gravity feed). If you're doing this alone its tough to put your finger over the hole, and lift the tank at the same time. Some fuel is going to spill.

thats it just a single line ? and of course the bolts that hold the take on.


so if the pump is in the tank is it ok to leave it on during paint ?

I think there's a return line on that bike too, but i'm not sure.

I, personally wouldn't. You're going to want to drain the tank, and the easiest way to do so is to drop the pump. Also, you don't want overspray to gum up the pump.

Its really easy theres going to be a fuel line, power wire, vent hose, remove them stand the tank straight up to avoid gas spilling out unless its really full then that just sucks there should be a circle of bolts remove them all slide the pump out. keep the o-ring too.

I am not too familiar with Suzuki's, but all of the Yamaha's have a quick disconnect. When you unplug the fuel line, the hose closes and you just get like a tablespoon of fuel. If the hose has a connector on it, then it is most likely a quick disconnect.

http://fiche.ronayers.com/Index.cfm/...oup/FUEL_PUMP_

If you are too worried, just purchase a cheap hand pump to remove the fuel from the tank. I agree that you should remove the fuel pump to have it painted, but disagree about keeping the o-ring. I would buy a new gasket for the fuel cap and the fuel pump. They are cheap and very necessary. (unless you like fire or like smelling like gas every time you get off of your bike).
