Hey guys, I just rebuilt my bike, and put a new gas tank on. However, it seems very unstable and wobbles side to side. I have tightened three bolts: the one directly underneath the driver seat, and the two by the steering damper. Are there any other bolts I am unaware of? What am I missing?
I tried looking and I did not see those rubber pieces. The tank rests mostly on the air box... Could you try to point them out on the schematic? Also, it seems weird because I do not see anything on my old tank either.
Ekimgb is correct. Those are rubber bumpers near the front that stop it from rocking. They are held on with a SMALL amount of crappy adhesive and fall off easily. Find 'em and glue them back on and your tank will be solid again.
Of course I'm generalizing from a single example here, but everyone does that. At least I do.
Gotcha... I am not sure if the 09 has those too though. It doesn't look like it from the schematics. I will try looking though. I am beginning to think I did not re-install the air box correctly and it is sitting too high up, thus propping the tank up, allowing it to wobble...
