I just rode the bike home from the local shop that installed my Rick's Tank. They had to grind the right passenger peg a bit to clear the tank, but that was no biggie.

The one thing they were a bit concerned with was the clearance between the tank and the rear wheel (around 3/16"). The guy who owns the shop is a drag racer - and he cautioned about the tires 'growing' at high speeds. I don't plan on making too many 120 mph runs on the Night Rod, so I am not worried much there. Anyone else with similar concerns?

All in all it was $360 for the installation - and I was happy to pay (since I didn't want to mess with it myself). I'm looking forward to longer trips between fill-ups :)

Is that 3/16 with it on a lift or while it's sitting on a ground? If it's on a lift make sure not to travel at high speed while on a lift. :rofl: Tension on the belt is critical to distance while the bike is raised with stock shocks. Might not hurt to make sure it is as tight as it should be.
