Sounds like a call to the guy you bought it from might help?

Thanks again all. I almost feel bad that I went out riding instead of fettling today.

But only almost :-)

It's off! The problem was cable routing at the front of the tank prevented it moving forward the 5mm needed to clear the rear mount. Now all i need to do is excavate the remains of the old speedo cable from the gearbox drive.

And is the bolt fixture a stock item?

Looks to be. It is more a post than a bolt, with a mushroom head. I have pics i'll post after shrinking them.

Here are a couple of pics showing the rear tank mount.





The problem was actually at the front of the tank.

Oo tricky! Presumably head of bolt has a square below it so is captive in a slot? I.e. Won't turn.
