    RXP 2004 Fuel Tank Removal

    I have a 2004 RXP and the rivets on the rear fuel tank mount have failed.

    Can the tank be removed without removing the engine....? Hard to tell if it will fit throung the front .....

    I can probably move it forward to get to the rear mount without completely removing the tank....

    Any info fropm someone who has been there done that would be great....

    Cheers

    No unfortunately you must remove the engine to remove the fuel tank 15.9 gallons is a big tank it won't fit through the front access compartment

    That`s exactly what i had to do on my GTX 4-tec. Heads of the rivets rotted away and the aluminium plates broke away from the hull. Once the tank was drained and all of the pipes etc were removed, i managed to push the tank far enough forward to get access to the rear plate mounting positions. Drilled out the old rivets and replaced them with new ones. Was a bit of a pita but managed it without removing the motor. I would certainly try it first before pulling the motor.
