    Gas tank straps

    OK, I had to pull the straps off the gas tank to get under it to retrieve a wrench and a bolt, got the strap on the front back on after a lot of work but can't get the back strap back on and I know somebody out there has had to do this. I tried tying a piece of thin rope around it and pulling it that way but can't get it all the way to the hook. What's the secret?

    I did a Honda tank about a week ago. Just pull tight on one side and keep pulling as you slide your hands down to the other side. It works enough slack into the strap to get it hooked.

    I ended up tying some thin rope to the end right below the buckle on 1 side and loop the rope under the hook. Then got someone to pull the rope as I pulled the rubber until it was at the hook and I popped it on, worked great.
