I replaced mine today. Not a real easy job but not terrible either. Mine was not leaking but quite banged up and the hose inlet was almost broken. Got a new one (Honda OEM) at Bike Bandit. The hoses on my 2005 were long enough to not be a big headache. One bolt removed, drop tank, remove hoses and replace with new one. Since I had replaced coolant a short time ago, I captured the coolant in a clean bottle and reused it. I purchased the 11 inch Harbor Freight curved needle nose pliers (4 bucks) to assist with this as suggested in other posts. I did not need them however as my hoses had enough play to reach them. The whole job took me almost an hour as I had never done it before. It would be faster next time!
