    Finally got around to pulling my tank back to check the bolts holding the round rubbers up front. I know of one instance where a bolt backed out enough to wear a hole in the underside of the tank. Sure enough my left one was VERY loose. Right side was fine. I removed both and added Loctite. Re-greased the rubber pucks for good measure. Quick and easy job. Worth a check.

    I found both of my bolts loose with no Loctite. One had already backed into the tank and was rubbing into the tank with an indentation starting to work a grove into the tank. IF I had not caught this it would have worn a hole through the tank.
