My 04 is perfect.... Are you sure you have the rubber bushings on the top mounts. There is one from the top and one from the bottom. The gap looks to be about what the thicknes of the busshing would be.

Yeah, I'd kinda like to see this too! I've never seen any bushings on mine...but then a former owner was a hardware butcher, so anything's possible. I have had to fix more rounded, stripped, hacked hardware on this bike...amazing.

Hay...here's a tip: When using a tank bag, I take this cover off. The bag sits a little lower and is more stable. Of course, there's nothing in the box at the time, but...yeah.

Thanks, man. Previous owner of mine katoom was a handy guy as well =))) strange is that he did not care about important things, such as bended front wheel that caused shaking, but some minor details, such as orange bolts and caps, were changed immediately even after a small scratch =)

My 2004 950 fits tite

the problem would have to be with the storage box bottom part , #60 in the picture
the storage box top part #64, flexes to fit the bottom #60
#60 determines the location of #64
my storage box bottom part is precisely 180mm between the center of top part mounting screw holes at the widest part

if you were to stuff something between the fuel tank and the storage box bottom, it will push the outer seal on the box upper back into position

my guess is that this happened from carrying a very heavy tank bag which distorted the box bottom

#60 is $20 USD

Sorry I haven't been following this thread over the past couple days. My bike is in pieces but I can post a pice when I get it back together.

In the diagram in post #20 above. The bushings are #15 each mounting point has one from the inside and one from the outside. If the inner/lower one is missing from the top mounts the front of the tanks would be lower creating the gap.
