Does anyone have a picture of the bottom of the V9 fuel tank?

    In my quest for swapping my tank, I am wondering if anyone has a picture of the bottom of the tank of a V9. I am trying to picture how this thing mounts. I looked at the service manual for the v9...but the diagram shows a v7 tank. I don't want to start taking off my tank until I have a good idea that I have all parts needed for the swap.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks

    Just pull your tank. Easy process as long as it's not too full of fuel.

    I would, but my bike is actually in storage at the moment. I may just have to bite the bullet and do it this weekend!

    Thanks, Unfortunately that doesn't show me where the fuel pump goes in. I can't tell if it is in the back towards the seat or on the side against the frame.

    hopefully this weekend I will get the opportunity to take my tank off. Do you know if I will need to replace the fuel pump gasket if I do that? Or is it a reusable kind? That would seem to be an expensive thing to do everytime you take off your tank.

    Thanks again!

    I replaced old fuel filter to full metal last month and yes, fuel pump gasket is reusable. Use 7mm socket and torque them to 5Nm if I remember right.
