Speedometer Rattle Fix/Removing gas tank/seat

This annoying rattle from the speedometer overpowers the great exhaust sound so I needed to fix it Smiley

Start by removing the 2 bolts that hold on the seat

Now remove the 2 bolts and bracket that holds the rear of the tank (seat lift mod)

Now turn the raptor petcock to the off position and remove the fuel line(If you have the stock petcock you'll probably need to drain the gas and fully remove it)

Now lift the tank and pull towards the back of the bike

Disconnect the power supply to the cluster

Disconnect the speedometer cable

Dont lose the spacer gasket inbetween!

Now tip the tank up and get ready

Remove the 3 nuts holding the springs in, we will be reusing the 3 nuts and 3 washers

Now remove the speedo cable from the speedometer

Pull the speedometer from the top of the tank (notice I already put the fuel line onthe bolt side)

Now cut up some fuel hose a little longer then the spring, this will replace the spring and reduce the rattle

Slide everything on like this

Put the washers on first then tighten the nuts and then install the speedometer cable

Follow the steps backwards for reassembly! Thanks  Wink
