When the bolts arrived it became immediately obvious that the existing mounting method was wrong and that the bolts were well worth the price.
The special tank bolts are shouldered so that the rubbers, one of which locates the tank, are squeezed up just a little at which point the bolt shoulder bottoms in the tank nut. The end result is a mini isolastic type tank mount. The tank vibrations are now mostly gone.
The existing method of mounting at front was via two studs and a couple of rubber washers. When tightened enough that the tank did not move around, the rubber washers were compressed to nothing so that the rubber mount effect was nil.
One of the new bolts has an extra long hex head so that it can be reached easily even though it is behind the rectifier mount, hence the different part numbers.
