The stock petcock required opening the holes for the fuel tubes slightly. I used a 11/32" bit to pull the hole out slightly. This allowed the raised portion at the base of the screens to clear for installation.looks nice. Was the fit perfect when you went to install?
It fit just like the stock tank. Well pretty close. One line was very close to the tank where it fits over them so I cut a piece of fuel line and slipped over it to insulate between the line and the plastic tank.How doe the new Clarke Tank work with your oil cooler set up? Any issues?

Pretty much no problems. I did not have to make any changes to get it to fit.
Nice. Take some pictures if you can. I did not document my install of the cooler very well.I will now get on with these two projects. I have all the oil cooler parts and they have been pre-fitted. But I decided to hold off on the oil cooler installation until Clarke finished their tank. I was afraid that their new tank might affect cooler placement. I wasn't sure were I was going to place the cooler if I couldn't use the bike frame down tube as the attaching points.
So we need to molest our bikes and lose quick release features in order to make it fit right?
How could Clarke get something so simple wrong?
