Just took apart the F4 for the first time

The fit and finish on these bikes is amazing. One bolt for the tank!! None for the airbox! Simply genius. Now if I can only find a thin walled spark plug wrench so I can get the plugs out.

The spark plugs are a bitch! I had to turn a spark plug socket on a lathe to make it thin enough to go down the tube. Mind the wellnuts don't drop in the air box.

Just be careful when you put it back on. The fuel coupling have a reputation of getting cracked if the tank is not put on correctly. The Tucson dealers recommends having a second person spot you as you put it on.

Yeah, I was aware of this and my Dad was helping so we didn't have a problem with the fuel lines. I even ordered two sets of airbox wellnuts too.

Excellent. I had to learn the hard way. Cost me a 90 trailer ride to the dealer.

tank removal is much easier as a 2 person job... even with 2 empty tank.
