breesem:
I had probmlems with my original tank (98 T595). It bowed out on one side meaning it was less concave than the other side. It also expanded and twisted so it didn't sit in the frame properly and I couldn't get the tank cowl back on.....


I wonder if the distortions along the sides are secondary effects of the tank elongation.

If the tank is elongating then there would be bending stresses along the sides unless the elongation is accommodated for by moving the mounting holes (as per my pic above).

I haven't seen any signs of bubbling or deformity along the sides (being the weakest/thinnest part of the tank), maybe because of relieving the stresses by extending the mounting holes.
