This might help with the slipping tank syndrome-
I put a thin coat of plasti-dip on the tank's valley and top surface of the frame tube to be able to keep it in position without over-tightening the mounts.
It really works and I can't even budge it from side to side while the nuts are only snug. Blue loc-tite and a double nut keeps them on.
