How did you pull the seal?  I know I have done this before without splitting the case or even taking the engine out of the frame, but I can't remember how I got the seal out.

a small wood screw threaded partially in, pliers pulled it out

That is what I was thinking after I posted my reply.  It was the only thing that made sense.

the clarke tank is from adammtb, petcock is a new yamaha  2GU-24500-02-00, free viton gasket material from brianpeck.

i trimmed the seat bracket corners, they were touching the tank.

had a drip from petcock to tank, used the viton to seal.

should have decent range now.

also pulled off the handlebar blocks & installed stock guards

So you made the lower support element out of welding rod to increase the strength/rigidty?

Makes perfect sense.  Nice bending jig by the way.
