Thanks. i'm not sure if I understand the dremel part, but I can picture the longer screw through the slider with a nut capturing the piece from the other side.

Could you elaborate on what I need to dremel? A pic would be swell.

Thanks again for the help.

What was wrong with the stock fuel tank? Or what advantage does ur fuel tank have vs the original ones?

John is talking about the fuel tank lid, not the actual fuel tank. He made an extension to give a better grip when re-fueling.

Yes it does say in the post fuel tank handle.There is nothing wrong with the tank.The handle makes it easier to refuel.

that handle I have used and it is the best one on the market IMO. I have used 2 others. John is easy and you don't have to cut any more of the body to clear like others.

Does anyone know what these holes are for? The look like extra engine mount holes, maybe for an electric conversion?
