The tank is narrow, only about 9 inches wide. And I agree, it needs to be positioned better but I was just trying to get an idea of what it would look like. I layed a rubber glove across the bike so I wouldn't scratch the paint and just balanced the tank where it would stay without falling while I took a picture. Since then I've used some thin rubber to save the paint and set the tank where I think it looks best; further back and a little lower. Like I said, I'm starting to like the looks. I think if its painted to match the bike it'll look more at home.
