Review from Jason Robitaille June 1, 2012
Reviewer: Jason Robitaille from New Bedford, MA  
These do not fit on my 1996 Sportster S factory tank. The bottom of the tank hits the frame and the front willnot lift, not even close. Unless I'm doing something wrong...

Licks Response:
Jason did you see the disclaimer on our site with regards to this part??? I Have attached it to the bottom of this review.  That being said, we have had a number of guys resolve this by simply unbolting the rear tank bolt and lifting rear of tank to mount front and reinstalling. Long and short, some tanks work some don't, it just depends on the model and year of 2003 and older XL


DISCLAIMER LISTED ON TANK LIFT AD:

Fitment : We have had isolated reports that on some 2003 and older XL models, the rear of the tank may also need to be raised slightly to accommodate the Licks front tank lift. On some models, the back of the tank may hit the backbone when trying to raise the front to the full extent to mount tank lift. In general we have experienced that the Licks Tank Lift fits 1995 and up XL's.

Review from John Van Pelt April 14, 2012
Reviewer: John Van Pelt from Whiting, NJ  
Also, most likely tank is not hitting frame. The tank is hitting and/or stuck to the seat or it tight at the lower connecting point by seat. Give it a good pull from the front and it lifts up fine, plenty of clearance. My tank was a little resistant to lift at first.

Review from John Van Pelt April 14, 2012
Reviewer: John Van Pelt from Whiting, NJ  
I just put these on a 2012 Iron. They went on no problem. It took 10 mins. There are no directions included because this is a straight forward install, easy to figure out. For anyone having trouble try this: Less fuel in tank will make it easier, remove bolt connecting tank to frame, give front of tank a good yank to lift it up, install the Tank Lifters to the tank first using bolts included with kit, do no tighten them yet, re-install the origninal bolt through lifters an frame and tighten bolt, then tighten the lifters to the tank. I did this on a bike with Black Denim paint which scratches easily so use quality tools an watch the ends of the allen wrench an ratcher and you'll be fine. The Iron is very bare bones and the kit looks great on this bike.

Review from louis rector March 30, 2012
Reviewer: louis rector from Inverness, FL  
This part will NOT fit a 1999 883 Hugger.

The rear of the tank hits the backbone, tank can only be raised about 1.5 inches, guess I'm next in line with the same problem.

Review from teddy lutz March 30, 2012
Reviewer: teddy lutz from middleville, MI  
Just a bit disappointed that it took me longer to run to the store, grab a six pack, call a buddy over to help and find the proper tools to install the tank lift. Great quality, looks great, 5-minute install, you guys do a fantastic job as well!
