Can someone give me some ideas on how to reinstall expanded gas tanks? I took both tanks off to do maintenance on the 990 about a month ago. I drained both tanks and left the tanks open so they could breathe and hopefully not expand. Well now that it is time to put the tanks back on it is a no go. The tanks have apparently expanded and I have like 1.0" to 1.5" between where the bottom tank bolt goes through to screw into the cross brace for the skid plate. I have tried keeping the top two bolts really lose(like only one or two threads started) to gain some wiggle room but still cannot make them fit. If I force the bottom one into place then the top one will not line up and starts stripping the threads when I try to screw it in. I have had this issue before but never to this degree. I was hoping that leaving the tank lids partially open and the cooler weather(about 50 degress here in Houston) they would not expand very much. I was wrong. Has anyone found a way to make the tanks shrink or to reliably reinstall them. I'm sure you have all experienced this but I am becoming fed up with it. I want to do my own maintenance but this is ridiculous. It is seriously making me want to find something else to ride. I don't want to throw all the pieces in the truck along with the bike and drive 75 miles(one way) to have a dealer do it.
