There are a few tricks to making the fuel tank easier to pull. Once you know those tricks it's not hard, but still something I hate doing. You gotta pull off all the plastics, it's just a pain in the ass.

The air filter cover looks nice. Kind of extreme but I appreciate the craftsmanship. That guy put a lot of work into those parts. I have forgotten what it was like to ride the bike with the stock intake but I recall gaining a nice little boost and certainly extra noise when putting the bigger intake and tuning the engine.

This is my first time I have ever cracking into the hyper. I am mechanically inclined, having built numerous motors, bore n stroke, my own port n polish work with flow testing over the years, trans gear swapping etc. It is definitly tricky getting these parts out efficiently the first time. LOL. I lost alot of time to that damn rectifier. I even turned down an allen wrench on the lathe to make it a long thin swivel. I definitly see a way to disassemble it more efficiently in the future. Is there a sticky thread that covers dismantle tricks n tips, that would be helpful to people new to the hyper like myself.

I did the air filter change this past spring when I replaced the clutch cable. Ya the rectifier was a major pain. Very time consuming since I first removed the mounting hardware for the rectifier. Pulling the tank was not to bad.

Does he have a site I can order it from. I'm not on Facebook and won't be. Any pointers on where to get the filter would be most welcome as well. I'm at 7K now, so pulling the tank isn't that far off now. Thanx in advance...

I didn't have to remove the rectifier, but reaching that buried torx was a fudge and a pain - but it can be done.

I defininetly seen easier ways to do this in the future. That whole rectifier assembly is on rubber isolators and slides twards you to pop off. The side panels I also had trouble with. The single bolt isolator that needs to be slotted into the oval flange(I don't feel I'm explaining it correctly). Do you have any tips or tricks to get that back together?
