    XT225 tank install......

    We installed the XT225 tank today and installation was exactly as previoisly mentioned in numerous threads, many thanks to those that took the time to post the info.

    When we went back to attach the panels that cover the tool kit and the same space on the other side......the male part of the grommet is two inches short of the female part to, secure it to the bike......... I am wondering if anyone else has had this occur on a 2015.....and what you did to remedy the situation.....

    TIA

    when i trimmed the corner of the panel to clear the tank i cut the male "thingy" off with a chisel, and re-glued it where it needed to be. i'll post a pic tomorrow. 5 yrs and more than 5k miles with no problems.

    Hey Joe, sorry to hear that your male "thingy" was too short and you cut it off with a chisel - but please, no pictures!

    So sorry for the thread jack. I can say jack right?



    It's a "short film".
