Here's a how-to on shock remove/replace on K1200. It's a K1200S but that chassis is close enough that I was able to do the job using this procedure....good luck. Wilburs rock
You don't really remove the oil tank, just displace it to the side for access.
The how to starts with front shock, rear is a few pages down.
