Can someone share with me how to get the fuel pump out of the fuel tank?

yep, the pump is mounted to the tank plate. Once the seat is off, you can disconnect the electrical and hose connections and unbolt the tank plate - lift slowly, have a few shop towels to catch drips and a good sheet of thick aluminum foil to help cover the huge hole in your tank and you should be fine ...

... oh, and no smoking ;)

One thing also...make sure the tank is not full when you do this! The filler neck of the tank is higher than the fuel pump - so if the tank is full, when you pull the pump, you will have a gush of gasoline going everywhere.
