If you can't get to them, then you will have to either do a partial tank removal or a full.

Remove the two bolts holding the front of the tank to the frame, as well as the rear bolt on the tank. Put a towel/thick rag under the rear of the tank, and one under the front of the tank to raise it up as much as possible.

Do not force it!!

Raise the tank as much as you can, or just enough to get the wires off the coil.

You will have to cut the factory nylon ties that hold the wires. I suggest replacing them, as if not, the wires can rub the rockerboxes and ruin the new ones.

Did ya bother to buy a factory service manual before ya started to work on your bike ? It's the best investment in your tool box ! Get the manual and start doing some reading dude / fella !
