Fuel pump removal tool

I seem to remember from youtube that there is a special tool you need to remove the lock ring off the gas tank to get the fuel pump out. Anybody have the down-low on where to get that tool?

I never saw a wild thing feel sorry for itself.--DH Lawerence

I use the Snap-on tool. It works great and is made of plastic so it won't scratch your fuel tank if you slip. The metal tool cost more and if you slip it can cause paint damage to the tank. Some just use a hammer and a screw driver but than if you slip.

I have this one from George's. One made from plastic or nylon would be best. JMO.

Being very careful, I used a large flat screw driver and a hammer.
Worked fine.
Hope this helps.

+1 on the snapon tool. Made the job way easier. Did my bike and a friends limited in less than a 1/2 hour. From my view putting the lock ring back on would be the difficult part with any other tool.

My special tool is a 1 foot section of 1" Schedule 40 PVC Pipe and a Dead Blow hammer. Works great. You do want to get in there and change the fuel filter a bit more often than I did...



This one has 50,000 miles on it. Can you guess which one is the old one and which one is the new one?
