Re: fuel pump retaining nut removal
I recently replaced the fuel filter, hoses and rubber gasket. I removed the big nut with a huge pair of channel locks, but it ate up the nut a bit, so I purchased the strap wrench - well worth the few bucks it cost!
Make sure you check the rubber gasket that goes between the fuel pump and tank - I put my original one back in, put it all back together, mounted it on the bike, put some gas to check it out, and it was leaking! Hard to tell that the gasket was bad, but it was - It's worth the $6 to get a new one; just make sure everything is clean and dry when reinstalling.
