Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

not hardly worth the effort to fix a leaky tank, but if you really need to it can be done

first, cut off the stud and drill a hole right there

put a metal washer, then a neoprene (or other fuel resistant) washer on the bolt

shove a piece of saftey wire thru hole & out the filler hole on top of tank

tie wire to end of bolt and pull bolt down into tank & out the hole

add another metal & neoprene washer, then three nuts

double nut the last two nuts at the end of the bolt to hold the bolt while you tighten the third nut against the washers at the tank base

remove the doubled nuts and you're done & dry
