So I went to fill 'er up today (AGAIN!...see my question about gas mileage) and noticed that my tank has a little play on the hex bolt posts. Is this normal? There is probably .125" gap under each bolt, when I wiggle the tank it'll move slightly however I never noticed it while riding. I've only had the bike a month (bought used from stealer..I mean dealer) though. Any thoughts?

Are these the bolts at the top of the tank?
If so, it could just be the rubber bushings compressing.
If you remove the tank, for the top two bolts there is a metal sleeve that the rubber bushing fits over and both of those are under the tank. From the top is a bolt and a washer. If any of those parts are missing, bring it to the dealer and have them replace those and check out the rest of the bike for other missing parts. These are assembled, hopefully by human beings, that are not infalable, or maybe just stupid.
If everything looks good, just tighten it up.
