Default Re: my bike poll

Here is a trick I learned for mounting the fuel tanks and not pinching the cables.

The tanks that come with the kits use metal mounting straps that essentially pinch/clamp the upper frame tube/bar from under the tank. however I drill a small hole in either the center of the mounting strap or one on either side and use self tapping screws to attach them under the cables and to the frame. that gives about 1/4 inch space between the mounting straps and the bottom of the tank. See the illustration below..(sorry I only know how to use paint but not very well.) If you have any questions about this just ask me.
