Fuel Tank Dampers
« on: February 09, 2018, 09:39:01 pm »
Working on this new to me 2006. Seems every time I turn around I find some part missing that the previous owner thought was unnecessary. I've lost track of just how many rubber bumpers I've had to buy.  Anyway I've got the fuel tank off and noticed in my Clymer manual a damper I didn't have. I recognized it as a similar damper on my KLR. Then looking further at a parts diagram I'm thinking I'm missing something else.

In the attached picture I am speaking about dampers 92075A & 92075C. I know 'C' is definitely not there but I have no idea about 'A'. Don't see anything that looks like that and I'm not sure where it would go. Does anybody have a picture of the frame under tank showing these things? Greatly appreciated but also frustrated that this stuff is just gone. I can see a bit of a rub mark on the frame and u/s of tank so I'm thinking I need these things.

If I recall correctly and it's been a while, the "A" pad straddles the frame where the "T" part of the frame is and the U-shaped one straddles the frame rib further up. Maybe someone has a picture.  I used zip ties on all mine after one of the doughnuts hit the floor, accelerated to light speed and apparently disappeared into an invisible black hole in a 24X24' garage floor. Never found that sucker, not even when I bought new ones.

Ya a picture would be golden. I've searched with Google and watched a bunch of YouTube but haven't seen anything with these in place.

Thank you, thank you, @ron203. That helps a lot. Definitely missing that piece. Slays me how someone looses that.
