*ndrew82flh said: Working on a rigid build, and getting ready to mount an oil tank, question is does it have to be rubber mounted to frame? Thanks
Sh*velhead Red said: Are you using a round oil tank with 2 mounting points on the top? I would rubber mount it using a couple thick rubber washers (1/4-1/2" thick) you want the tank to move if you push on it but it should not feel loose. It should feel similar to a set of rubber mounted risers.
*ndrew82flh said: it is a round tank (with battery tray) with a mount point on the front lower section, and two mounting points located half way down the back behind the battery box.

Ch*pperkev said: What type of tank? If it carries the battery, it may be a good idea to rubber mount it, to stop it shaking the battery to death. If it's just for oil, I would say it depends on the quality of the tank. A tank made from thin material, or poorly welded, may fail even if it is rubber mounted. The oil tank, on my bike, is solid mounted. It's been on for a number of years, with no issues. Edit. I type very slowly.
Sh*velJockey said: For rigids, no matter where the battery is mounted, I only run with seald glass mat batteries. They hold up a ton better to the vibrations. I ran one for 5 years in my last chop. So, whether you rubber mount it or not, do make sure it is of superior construction, and run a sealed battery.

Rubber mount it or the mounts will most likely break . especially in a rigid . mine is rubber mount and have no problems . the fxe battery box rubber mounts were way too thick so i used KTM exhaust rubbers they are not as tall only about 1/2 inch thick .I used these on the top mounts then an fxe one on the bottom . hopefully it is not the jireh softtail one , I had to cut a piece out of mine to clear the primary then welded it back together .
