Hi guys.... I finally got my painted tins back (after 5 months....those dang artists...LOL) I had my blower about 90% installed and was waiting for the Tins to finish the bike and get it running...... When I set the tank on, I realized that there is about a 1/4 inch interference.... The black cap on top of the carb is keeping the tank from bolting down properly in the front. I've posted on the VRCC board ...but DOTS is goin on and everyone is probably there....One guy responded with "torch and hammer" I'll save that as a last resort.... what about shimming the Tank mounts ? or bending the mounting tabs on the tank ?
Has anyone else run into this problem ? It is a 97 valk standard.
Any help is greatly appreciated .... Chris D in TN
