I need a new gas tank on a 09 muscle. What else should be done when doing it.

So heres the story. 2 yrs ago i put air ride on and a smaller front pulley. The belt was at full a adjustment and still not tight enuff so i ordered a 1" belt with a lesser tooth count witch fixed that. I noticed it was real close the the gas tank but did not rub as long as the suspension was set right. So i went to put fuel in it the other day and when i got home noticed it leaking thanks to the rubbing tire. So thats my problem. I want to switch to chain drive so i have more gearing options. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Im sure im not the only won that has done this. Lol

I bought one for an 09 vrscaw from Surdyke Harley online a few months ago and was surprised that it was reasonably priced and in stock.
