I am putting in my shakle flip from DIY this weekend and I have seen in several threads and reviews that it is easier if I swing down the gas tank. I was wondering 2 things. Has anybody out there tried it with out lowering the tank out of the way, what were the issues you had? And second if I was to swing down the 1 end of the tank what is the best way? Do I just cut the straps or what? THANKS for the help.
