Do you have a pic? If I remember correctly all you have to do is unplug the fuel pump harness which should be by the frame on the left side of the bike and then unscrew the main fuel line bolt which is on the right side of the bike. All those other hoses are vents and you shouldn't have to worry about it. Just remember not to lose the fuel line bolt like me and then have to buy a new one from Honda and wait even longer to put your bike back together

The 2 hoses that don't go any where are the vent hoses and over flow hoses. The manual says you have to remove them but I can not remember if I did or not. If you do just be sure to label them somehow so you know where the go. The other 2 are going to be your main fuel line and fuel return. You will have to disconnect those. As for all the wiring that should be pretty easy, follow where it goes and it should lead you to a 3 prong black connector on the left side of the bike like right on the frame. Disconnect that and you should be good to go.

When I painted my tank, I removed all of the little bolts around that gold plate and just pulled the entire fuel pump out. Then you won't need to disconnect the fuel hose (or worry about your pump getting painted.)

As long as you don't get gas on the new paint you'll be fine.
