HEY GUYS! Just built my first beauty. It’s running well and strong aside from when I picked up a nail. However I have a question about how you guys like to secure your gas tank and mufflers. My attached components are tending to vibrate loose. Am I just going too fast? Or if there another way to tighten things down?

Los Angeles, CA.
I use two sided tape between the tank & frame & also loctite on the tank bolts.
For the exhaust pipe, I always retorque the bolts after the first few rides.

Wrap an old innertube around your frame under the gas tank.

Make a strap to hold the muffler to the frame.

Both of these simple things also cut down the vibrations.
I’m gonna try the inner tube as that is available to me. Thank you!!
