Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

off with the tank

Post by skyrider on Thu 07 Jan 2016, 7:10 pm

this afternoon I took the tank off ready for spraying and found out why the filler cap doesn't close properly the front allen bolt of the the three long ones that screw into the tank has sheared off so stopping the cap going down far enough, so I keep spraying the bolt with wd and hope it soaks in, does anyone know where to get new filler allen bolts ?

yup, probolt - there are two Honda kits if memory serves so make sure you get the right one. just check how many long and short bolts come and compare that to the CB.
