    I was riding my 2005 Mastiff and at higher speeds the center console on my two piece fuel tank is lifting up at the bottom close to the seat. Was looking for anywhere close to the seat to tighten it and can’t seem to see anything, I do see what looks like two screws up front under the tank both seem tight any ideas here how to solve this problem

    You should have a screw on the top of the console that hold the center and the annunciator in place. There should be a second screw at the bottom of the console that holds the bottom of the dash. Make sure they are tight and they should have washers on them.[​IMG]

    Does it have the rubber liner around the dash? If that is missing it may cause a gap between the tank and the dash.
    I can’t believe their are no fasteners on you dash! You could apply a small dab of clear rtv to the bottom to hold it down. Apply sparingly as it will make a mess on your tanks

    Also does your seat cover the bottom of the dash when installed? Some seats have a lip on them that goes over the dash to hold it in place

    My seat slides under the console and doesn’t touch it

    Shot in the dark, but is there any bolts/screws under it to hold it down?

    I'm kinda with Shain and I'm going to take a guess and say that someone did some work on the dash and covered that eyesore of a bolt hole and left the bolt coming out the bottom with a nut on the underneath side.

    I did thanks the idiot I bought it from had it tightened down underneath with electrical tape. I found out where it was broke. I’ll probably use a clear silicone inside at the bottom it should hold it down without damaging anything

    Be carefull with youre dash panel. They are thin and pretty fragile. They can be repaired if need be but I don't think there are any new ones available any more.
