2018 CBR1000rr SP1 Fuel Tank Removal?

Installing a power commander and having issues removing the fuel tank. Do you know of any video's or instructions on removing this beast. As for the two lines on top do I just pull those off? They don't seem to use a standard hose clamp.

Power commander is not the answer for properly tuning the 2017+ CBR.

Fair enough but an ECU flash / replacement is not in the cards for me at the moment. I have the PC on hand and I am trying to not ride the bike around without a tune since I have a full system installed. Looking to acquire a Ten Kate flashed ECU in the future 6 months out. So looking for a stop gap. Any help on the fuel tank will be appreciated.

Are you planning to convert your bike to a race only bike?

The Ten Kate ECU requires the HRC wiring harness and you will loose the ability to keep your ABS and Ohlins suspension.

To remover the tank you need to take the seat off, remove the 2 bolts at the rear of the tank cover and the front of the tanks cover up near the steering head.

Then once the cover is removed you will see 4 bolst holding the tank on.

The Ti tank is very sharp and will cut you badly if you don't take care as they only have an edge finish on a few sections.

Correct this will be a track bike only in the near future. I have been following your "RC45's SP2 Trackday Bike Build Thread" post so I am preparing for loosing that functionality. I am 6 months out as I will be hopefully getting another SP (2019) for day to day use for the next year. The two vent hoses on the top, Do I just slip those off?

Yes, the hoses just pull off, just take some effort from what I remember.

@RC45 Thanks! Worked perfect. At least I have a map on there so I am not running so lean until I upgrade ECU or find someone that I feel comfortable mapping the ECU here in South Florida.
