i also believe the tank bushes are part of the problem, i heard some one makes replacements - who? or where on the tank are the bushes?
I had my upper tank bolts kinda made for cheap. Ground off the threaded part ( that breaks) and had it drilled and tapped out then put in a new stronger threaded piece. So far so good and it only cost $20 to do both sides.
The road less traveled is the road I travel more.
