You want to remove the bolts, not the screws on this side. On the other side remove the screws closest to the frame.

The tabs stay with the shroud. and then you just pop the other tab from the rubber grommet.

Remove the fuel line. It's a vacuum petcock, so it shouldn't drip. Mine didn't.

Here's a better view of the rear of the petcock and the vacuum line attachment point.

I like to put all threaded bolts/nuts/screws back where I found them. They don't get lost and they are where you need them upon reassembly.

Lift off the tank and find a safe place to set it.

While you're here, an easy upgrade is a metal fan. I did mine earlier.
