Quick question slightly relative to this.
Am I right in thinking that when I change the petrol tank strap, I won't have to hold the tank in place with jacks?
Thank you.

No, you're not right in thinking that.

You will have to support the tank with something - either jacks or wooden blocks - otherwise it'll fall and the weight will be transferred to the pipework, which probably won't hold it.

Two jacks or two lots of wood blocks - put them under the tank, one each side (outboard of the tank strap, otherwise you won't be able to get it out).

I'm just about to put this tank back in but I can't remember the correct route for the various hoses/pipes.

There's a double clip on the bottom left corner (of this pic) and a triple clip on the bottom edge near the filter. Then at bottom centre there's the thing that looks like a double handle but I think is actually some sort of guide device for routing hoses/pipes.

Can anyone remember the correct route for the hoses/pipes?
