Just a quick question for everyone. I got a gas tank from another II and am having problems getting it into postion. It seems to be interfering on the thick side of the tank. I can get within about an inch of both strap bolts, but I am not having luck getting closer than that. So, my question is, could there be a difference in tanks from model to model or year to year? I didn't think there was, but maybe I am wrong. The only other variable to this equation is that I made a couple strap bolts....maybe they are not long enough? They stick out somewhere around 2", and by the Hayne's manual I have sitting here, the bolt stick out should be somewhere between 1.87"-2.12" after the tank is mounted. Could someone also let me know what the original lengths are and from where you measured? I have to figure something out here....getting frustrated!!!
