Exclamation How to remove and replace gas tank on 07 r6s

I am trying to remove a damaged tank on my 07 r6s and replace it with an OEM replacement. Any help would be GREAT, preferably step by step instruction. I have the manual but it doesn't show me how to remove and replace it.

Thanks in advance

take off the seat, take the bolts off the front of the tank, lift it up, take the bolt off the back, undo the connections under the tank, lift into air!

voila! tank removed.

installation is reverse of removal.

When i remove the lines and the tank cap/lid is the gas going to come out?

And once i replace the tank with a new one do i have to add more gas into the new tank for it to start?

Thanks Thrak for the quick response!

how do you expect the bike to run with no gas?

^ no reserve switch.....an indicator light will come on your dash when you have approx 0.9 gallons left. usually good for 30 ish miles, but I usually only ran it to around 20 miles.
