Default Re: Gas tank

I've read alot of posts about gas tank problems, so I thought I'd mention my approach to it. Motorcycle gas tanks usually have rubber mounts on the left and right side extending out from the frame horizontally. Drilling a 1/4" hole through the bike frame top bar and using a 5" or longer bolt with hard rubber tubing over it simulates this type of mounting without the need to over tighten the tanks mounting bolts. Its also extremely stable (no side to side twisting). Drilling holes usually does not affect the strength of the material being drilled.
