    Hey all,
    I need to remove my fuel tank to do some maintenance. How do I remove the fuel line from the fuel pump?

    You should only need to press locking ring bur that did not work with mine, I did press the line and locking ring with care and it worked.
    Be careful as it is easy to brake it.

    I finally found a video that showed how it worked (video was for a Ducati Scrambler tank). I used a small screwdriver and pushed back all of the tabs.

    Would you mind sharing a link to this video?

    Thanks

    You really do not need a tool to remove fuel line.  As previous poster noted, just push the lock ring down and the fuel line will pull out.  In some cases, you may have to push the elbow fitting down to allow the lock ring to push down and release line.  Depends how long it's been since it ran.  If you wait overnight, the pressure in that line drops and you only need to push the ring down.
