Fuel tank shakes

I just got my 919, still haven't ridden it sadly. But I noticed that my fuel tank has a bit of play in it, it moves from side to side just a little bit and I was wondering if that is normal.

Thanks

.... The rear of the tank is bolted on with 2 bolts.... the front slides into 2 rubber mounted posts. Pull your seat, make sure the 2 bolts are tight.... if so, you're good.

As Artic said the tank should be pushed forward onto the posts and the bolts at the rear of the tank tight. There really shouldnt be any side to side motion.

I see, thanks for the quick response. I'll check the bike once I'm home from work to make sure its correct.

Actually the 2 bolts at the back attach to a bracket. The bracket is attached to the frame with a single long bolt and nut that goes through the frame. If anything is loose, it's a good chance it's the long bolt that goes through the frame. Whenever doing anything related to the tank, you have to loosen that bolt to slide the tank back and release from the rubber mounts in the front.

Check the long bolt.

even if everything is tight and proper the tank still has some give as everything is rubber mounted.
