There are several posts on putting studs by the oil tank cover.

I summarized them here

If you look at the link I took a slightly different approach.

On the reinstall keep everything loose until you get every bolt/nut thread started.

Loosen the top two gas tank bolts. This allows the tanks to move up a bit to get the lower tank mount bolts through.
