1. It's very difficult to re-install the gas tank after removal. The problem
is getting worse over time. I have to use leverage using the seat mounts as 
fulcrum, and an excessive amount of force to push the tank forward far 
to line up the tank mounting hole with the holes in the frame tabs.

John, the only minor advice I can render is to possibly lube your front tank 
mounts. On my '94 R11RS, I had a hard time getting the tank forward enough 
to insert the rear mount bolt until I gave the front rubber mounts a squirt 
of silicone. HTH
