I was in the middle of hell at the office when I wrote it. The metal push tab is on the female side next to the tank. You'll figure it out.
The metal quick disconnects are the best thing you can do for yourself. The LT's started breaking with age as they got brittle and fatigued. That would be disastrous on our bikes. When you pull the female side off the tank, you'll notice a white soup in the threaded recess of the tank. This is from teflon tape, just sop it up. Use teflon tape on the female side to the tank JUDICIOUSLY. Good luck getting the male side out of the tube.
FYI, a male side quick disconnect from an LT will work, though it doesn't have a ninety degree elbow. Found that one out the hard way on a Sunday afternoon.
This bike is such a joy to work on compared to the LT as it strips and goes back together so quickly.
What was that middle thang?
