    Gas tank removal...

    Hey I was wondering if anyone knows an easy way to bolt my gas tank back in. I have a 96 polaris slt 780 and there are four bolts holding it in but they are hard to get to because of the foam on the walls. I was not wanting to remove the foam.??? Any tips?

    Only to say it's a bitch! I put puddy in the end of my socket and PRAY the bolt stays in place. Use a long extension that allows the use of a small ratchet (I use a palm ratchet). Take your time and DON'T cross thread any inserts.
