There are three bolts holding the tank to the frame,the manual says 6 foot lbs on back bolt and 15-18 foot lbs on two front bolts at neck of frame.when i got to about ten foot lbs it stripped on both sides unfortunately.plz help.
Use a Time-Sert:
Better than a helicoil.

Testimonial: "this is what i used,although it was a metric time -sert it worked.i did have to bend the welded on brackets out a little to get the tank to slide over the time-sert fix but it work!!thats all that matters.thanks"
Acquire the correct bottoming tap & chase the threads, use oil on tap wd-40 will work fine

Drain the fuel either by siphening or removing the cross over tube at the front of the tank and letting it drain that way or just block off those cross over lines and leave the fule in the tank for removal.
0) remove seat
1) drain fuel
2) undo cross over line (bottom front of gas tank.
3) shut off pet **** and remove fuel line from pet ****.
4)there should only be 2 bolts holding the tank on, one at the top front of the tank and one at the back of the tank.
All in all a pretty easy (but possibloy messy) job.

It's 3 stage. HD vivid black base (you can use PPG 9700 or similar) with midcoat HD part #98628DHD. Two medium coats seems to be ok for matching factory parts. Any topcoat will be fine. I don't like the HD topcoat and opt for PPG 2055, 2021 or Shop Line JC620.
