    WR Tanks

    Just got my first set of WR tanks ever and was wondering what was used to cover the gap between the tanks since there was/is no dash? I assume that there was something there from the factory, maybe not? Need to know my options. If there is something out there that is ready made, please chime in. Seadub

    A strip of sheet medal that attached to the speedo base forward mounting hole. The slots would need to be cut for seat T U bracket.Use stock mount point if still there for the other mounting point or bend up some ears to use the rear tank mount. Get the cardboard out,make your pattern and start cuttin'

    Sometimes they had a chin pad up there as well. Google WR images I think you will find a bunch of ideas.

    Remember that anything made for a WR will not fit a custom application like using those tanks on the VL frame...

    Yep, I forgot to add that. Perhaps I should have made the seat tabs compatable w/45 type mounts but I won't digress at this point. Just need something that will cover and the VL seat mount really messes that up. Seadub
