Hey Guy's does anyone know if there is an easy way to get this fuel line clip undone... my bike is a TNT 1130 05 model.. The manual say's it need a tool but Stoney Creek guy's said they just unclip. Thanks

It does just unclip. Try it....
If so, it's different to the Tornado. You definitely need a tool for that one, or you'll end up breaking it :eek:
The pic below (RHS) is what it the Tornado tank coupling looks like without the hose connected - plug installed. LHS shows the tool installed that releases the coupling. (These pics taken from the TNT ws manual)
If your's looks anything like that, DON'T try to remove it without the tool. You'll break it - eventually.

tank clips

The TNT one of mine came off very very easily, just push two tabs in, dunno about the tornado 1130. I just found it is a good idea to have two people and have the tank empty.

best be casual about it, the electric fuel pump is very expensive

OK :confused:
Once you've broken the tabs off, the tool won't work anymore.:doh:
To get it apart .... An orange clip sits above a red clip in the housing. The tabs cover them. To disconnect the tube, the red clip must be pushed towards the orange clip. ie. UP.:clap:
When you get sick of doing that, install one of these.:D
I used an 8mm one, but the 6mm version is easier to use.
Also, get a double sealing one. No spillage from a pressurised hose.
