Default Re: Gravity or siphon gas line

spray channel on bottom of tank with rubberized under coat like you find in the auto parts store, do the eame on the straps, do not overtighten nuts, use blue loctite on threads or double nut, key here is just enough force and grip to hold tank in place and not o r
ertightening nuts.

ive had one tank in 5 years leak at one of the studs, it was one of the junk chrome tanks and i had overtightened the nuts.

i ride very rough dirt roads and my bikes take a beating and i have no problems breaking tanks off ebay or anywhere else.
I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
