Cool thanks.

Where exactly did you put this spacer? At the lower front tank bolt point?

Any others experience this? Mine sure looks like that might be the case (haven't torqued it on just yet)

No problems here.

I had a similar problem with the original washer that came with the valve. I removed it and replaced it with a single oem copper washer and some high temp RTV. Works great.

I got the spring section indexed to face forward, since it was going to have a definite conflict with the tank, then bent the lever up so I wouldn't have to hog out so much more of the bracket. Now the lever locks and rotates between the spring cylinder of the valve and the bracket. Try not to leave the tank off, full of ethanol gas for too long, like a week or two is too long. I had to jack up the bike under the tank mounts and put a ratchet strap around the front of the tanks from the luggage rack to get the tank mount holes back near the frame bracket. It probably helped to leave it like that overnight. there are some other threads about tank swelling and warping, likely due to our great experiment with ethanol (net loss)

Hey guys!! I was thinkin about doing that mod as well, but I'm not to fond about doing holes on my bike...

Now, I was wondering how much clearance there is between the bottom of the tank and the top of the bracket, because if there's enough room, I'd go with something like this:

That would resolve my problem... What do you think?

With that elbow, you don't really need a tube, just a cap to keep the dust off. And when you want to make an oil change, take the cap off, put a cut-off plastic bottle under it...
