tw200.JPG I finished installing the XT350 steel tank with no big problems. Mounting the tank was straight forward thanks to the Forums info. I downloaded. The main challenge was modifying the seat to fit which took some work with a Dreme tool with a cut off disc to trim the seat pan ribs to enable it to flex and clear the tank rear bracket. It finally went back into place with the front tab and seat bolts in their normal position. There is minimal wrinkling of the seat cover.
Thanks to Forum members for supplying the tank, new TW stickers and good instructions---
Do the bars hit at all on the tank?

Hey Guys, I have the Clark XT 350 tank on my bike with risers and stock bars and it doesn't hit.

The XT350 tank is clear of the bars by about 1/4". I have 3/4" bar risers and I made the rear bracket to set the tank back about 1 1/4" from locating pin.

Yes, I painted the tank myself with "Appliance Epoxy" spray can. It was blue originally so I sanded it down to the primer. I think that paint is reasonably gas proof. I got the stickers from a Forum member who was selling them for a couple bucks each. Maybe, he still has some if you search site for "stickers."
