Re: Fuel tank keeps leaking
I was concerned with the same thing happening to the studs on my tank as the torque required to hold it in place seemed a little much for the thin metal. I resolved it by attatching my tank with a piece of heavy duty velcro tape. The tape alone seemed strong enough to hold it in place, so I just had to tighten it to snug.
If I want to replace the tank I can just pull it off, leave half the tape on the bike side, and add the opposite side of the velcro to the new tank. I also cut the tape to allow my brake line to run through the length of velcro which took any pinching concern off the line.
