I've got an '05 S2R800 tank that I've had hanging from the rafters in my shop for ~5 years.
I'm in SoCal, we've averaged 10" of rain per year during that time.
So it's pretty f'n dry.

It's still ~5mm too wide at the tank rubbers.

that is probably within normal variances.  the tanks deform a bit from heat too.

probably both, but i've found the measurement to vary a bit.  the tank is flexible and the rubber frame stops have slots that allow them to move about 8-10mm to account for minor variance between tanks & frames.

...and that is the way the steel tank parts were manufactured also.

It depends if the tank is 5 grand over nominal or maximum...

no?

...and if the max allowable on the rubbers only allow for + or - 4 or 5 mm it might be an issue.

Wouldn't you agree counselor? Grin

It's 5mm too wide with the rubbers pushed all the way inboard.

Yup.  That's not good.
