yea i got it..i was trying to do it with the tank proped up.. once i took the tank off it slid right out.. thanks zx10duran thats what i get for being lazy.. i didnt think it would matter with the tank still on..
Try turning it about 30 degrees and it should clear, its even more of a pain in the ass getting it back in, make sure you remove the ram air tubes first for more clearance, swame going back in, its eaiser to fit the ruber tubes after you have the box back in, but still a PITA
edit, I did not see that you still had the tank on, lol, thats what you get for being lazy i guess. tank is really easy to take off and on though.
hahahaha.. here's the tank removal problem again...
lots of people usually have a hard time getting the tank out the first time.
but trust me, you only gotta do it once and get the trick, the tank gets out like piece of pie.
