Birko,
My fuel tank needs to come out..very soon.
When I do get it out I will keep an eye out for the rubber piece and its location, assuming its still there.

Thanks Phil,

I have found out that it fits onto a bracket on the tank (shown just on it's right in the parts diagram) but not sure how it sits on the frame so would appreciate your views and even a pic would be great.

Regards

Bill

Birkco,

The tank is out, phew! been dreading that job.
I took some pics for you.
2 pics of the rubber as it was before pulling the tank out, as viewed from the top of the bike.
My impression is that it is semi hidden from view by the "splash tray"? that sits around the gas cap.
When I looked down there I could not see the rubber until I removed the tray.
The tank rubber is just about the same width as the tray so its not really obvious at first glance.
1 pic of the front of the tank when out of the frame.
I hope this helps, I can take another pic or 2 if need be.
Phil

Well done Phil,
I am now forearmed thanks for your help, much appreciated. Trying to get my GL1100 1981 back to spec after a full engine O/H.

Just got back the cylinder block with four cylinders re sleeved to std and the heads overhauled. Now wait for a replacement crankshaft and conrods and will then put the bady back on the road.

Thanks again.

Bill
