Personally I mount the tank on half sections of old handle bar grips (The squishy straight kind) sandwiched between the tank and the bar and use the original nuts to tighten the tank down then back them up with nylocks to reduce vibration from loosening them... Overkill I know... But I never use them on the exhaust because of heat issues...
