    That’s some seriously hard core cleaning you’re doing. Why remove the fuel tank?

    Tank removal: there are two side fixings (pic) and two to fixings. There are 4 total and watch out for the 4 rubber grommets on the back of these fixings as they fall out when you remove the tank. I put them back in with strong silicone so that should sort that for future. There are two electrical connectors to unplug each side at the bottom and two breather tubes front and under the fuel filler cap. There's a connector with a green tab - you use a screwdriver to pop the green tab up and the connector pulls off. Two fuel taps as usual - turn off and disconnect the hoses, then connect a pipe and drain each side into a fuel tank as usual. Name:  IMG_2277.jpg

    Good to coat with ACF-50 from the off. [emoji56][emoji118]

    I don't go that far, but always ACF-50 a new bike as soon as I get my hands on it, I just rely on the misted ACF from the spray gun getting into most nooks and crannies that are not so easy to reach, which it probably does quite well judging by the mist that comes out of all sorts of places when I spray around the engine and up under the tank.....

    ...plus it seems most "problems" folk have on ADV Rider start with "I took the tank off to...…"

    I always do this with KTMs. It's a 'get to know how your bike comes apart' thing but also a good idea to coat a new bike in something. No point waiting until you're at the side of the road/trail and wondering how it safely comes apart. I think KTM have a formula for dismantling that goes back many years now. Subtle differences between bikes of course, but once you get the hang of it you're away, whether that be some maintenance or fitting extra lights. Key thing is to make sure there are no nuts/bolts left over [emoji41]

    Apex, do you have any kind of workshop manual, or is it feel as you go ?

    YouTube in times past but these days you can work it out. Pretty much takr the tank off with a couple of torx, pliers, Allen key for tank bolts and common sense.

    Usual rule: if you're forcing it then there will be a fixing or something else you've missed. A good inspection torch is key if you're in a garage.

    2018 KTM 790 Adventure

    FRONT HEADLIGHT REMOVAL:

    Remove screen ( 1 screw )
    Remove the dark see- through plastic shrouds. If you struggle with this, sop now. [emoji12]

    Remove the 2 top screws holding this in place and the 2 underneath the light.

    This grey panel pops out each side - I used a fairly small screwdriver between plastic and metal taking care not to scratch the metal coating.

    Remove the dash fixings and disconnect the plug if desired and store away from bike.

    There are then 4 headlight screws that go in sideways into the light. Remove.

    The plastic should prise apart thus and if it doesn't you won't get the light out....be patient:

    Carefully pull out the light and remove connector, store in a safe place.

    You're left with this:

    What I was looking for was the two pairs of wires for accessories:

    Fit everything back in reverse.

    TAKE CARE NOT TO TRAP THE INDICATOR WIRES WHEN REPLACING HEADLIGHT SCREWS. I NEARLY GOT DONE BY THAT AS THEY LOOP UP AND ROUND.

    15mins max to replace it all once you've got the crack.

    Coming soon:

    How to change main bearings.
    How to rebuild the gearbox.
