« on: Jan 22, 2021, 02:42:15 pm »
 when removing the gas tank for painting - when I put the tank back on are there any gaskets or parts that need to be replaced?

    I hope not because I never replaced anything, but my bike was only a couple weeks old when I got it painted too.

    No gaskets, just make sure the tank sits on the rubbers on the frame nicely.

    I replaced my clips holding the fuel lines onto the tank as the standard ones are a pain to get on and off.

    Otherwise all good

      It's not hard at all. You'll do fine.
