Don't laugh, but I still haven't figured out how to disconnect the (quick disconnect?) fuel line on my 2007 C-50. Is there a trick to it? I HATE paying for valve adjustments, plus do my mechanics really do ALL of the tappets and adhere to specs?

Freedom is the open road....w/cruise control.

If you pop up the back of the tank and peek under with a flashlight you will see that the connector has a slot in it with a white clip. You have to kind of pull down on that clip while pulling on the hose and it will come of. As with most quick release, sometimes it pops right off and I look like a rockstar to anyone watching, but most of the time there's some cussing involved.

On a 2005 c50, I was told that there's a false bolt on one of the covers, anyone know which one it is? I'm trying to do mine hopefully this weekend along with an oil change.

There is indeed a false bolt. I don't recall which one it is, but it's easy enough to figure out: it's the one that turns very easily but doesn't come out no matter how much you turn it.

Ok, any idea on how to break the bolts free then? I tried with a ratchet set and I've tried with a screw bit set. Only thing I haven't really tried yet is an impact tool (mainly because I don't have one)

I changed my coolant this past weekend. False bolt is the upper right one on the rearmost cover. I have had my covers on and off several times since the bike was new, so I obviously have no problem getting the bolts loose. All I can suggest is spray them the best you can with WD40 using that little tube that comes with the WD40, let them sit overnight and try again. You obviously can't heat the bolts because those covers are plastic - at least they're plastic on my 2012 version.

Yeah, they're plastic on the 2005's as well.

Just changed the coolant on my '06 C-50. First time, but bike only has 6,500 miles on it. It was pretty easy. Fuel line did require a bit of cussing, but eventually it popped off. Refilled cooling system with Zerex Asian premixed coolant.
Took the opportunity to change oil & filter, clean the air filter and install the new Mustang touring seat(s) my wife gave me for Christmas.
