"BKB" is a TLA (Three Letter Acronym) for Burgman KnowledgeBase. You can find it here.

Good luck.

Finally...FYI what i have done. Deattaching is horrible story, and I decided do not do that. As I had a lot of dirty I filled the tank with a solvent, which corrodes the dust from the tanks sides. I have made it three times. After that I put inside zinc oxide, which takes all the corrosion away.. After that a few times cleaning with solvent and gasoline and finally: Clear tank without corrosion and dust wuthout deattaching it from the scooter! :) And I have to replace the fuel filter for sure...

When I bought my 09 back in 09, I took a peak under the tupperware and the tank was rusting.

The dealership replaced the tank and they said they had to drain the coolant and unbolt the engine.

If there's an easier way, please let me know. That fuel filter is a bear with a bad attitude if you ever want to change it. I haven't found a way to be able to pull the fuel pump out without having to remove the tank.
