The stock strap bolt holes are 16 inches front to rear. It's 44 inches between the spings. What is a safe distance from the tank to the road?? I sure could use some help here. THANKS!!!
I just made my own cell, it was the only way I could get the biggest tank in the smallest dimension.
I made it out of aluminum and had a buddy tig weld it, it has internal baffles and an integral sump.
