gas tank welded mount height
« on: 08.06. 2016 11:02 »
 I made a new mount for the gas tank, the one thats welded to the top tube. I have looked through all my service scans and pictures, but I cannot come up with a close height for the top of this.

 Is anyone in a position to measure this on a swing arm frame? What I need is the height from the top of the top tube to the top of the mount. In the back of my mind I have a figure of 7/8 of an inch, but i am just not sure...

7/8" is close enough but that includes the thickness of the head of the threaded insert which is 3/16".

 Thank you, I thought 7/8 was the number but I wanted to make sure before it gets welded and painted. Even though its really hidden, I still hate to have to break paint to fix something like that.
