Gas tank straps

Post by chevellelaguna on Sat Sep 26, 2015 9:53 pm

Okay, ready to get a new sender, have the tank painted, what's the trick to getting the straps out? I just have them hanging, wanted to clean them up and paint them. I've tried removing them and haven't had any success! What the hell am I missing? I thought they just slip out if you have the rear high enough, and let them hang down, push back? Push up?

Did mine a couple summers ago. Don't recall any issues removing either the tank or straps. IIRC, I unbolted the forward ends of the strap and removed the pinch bolt on the rearward ends and let them hang from the rears while I pulled the tank forward (so the fill neck cleared) and lowered it. Once tank was removed, simply slid the straps rearward out of the retaining slot they ride in.

Ahhhh the pinch bolt on the strap, that makes sense now. I hadn't run tails in years so there was a lot of soot and carbon all over the rear end, tank and straps, hadn't noticed there were bolts that pinch the strap .
