I was required to replace my gas tank(rust) on my recent acquisition (1993 TW with 700 miles)-so I purchased the Clarke tank-early August. Initial installation of the tank-no problem-and the side plastic panels tabs were modified to fit(zip ties). I removed the tank there after for a future valve adjustment. The tank contained about 1.5 gallons on gasoline-and was placed on the garage floor for 2 weeks (away from direct sunlight-but still gets hot in Vegas).
Last night after the valve adjustment was completed reassembly of the tank on the bike was implemented-same procedure as before. This time the tank mounting tabs would not align up
Am I missing something????
