If you loosen the rear bolt you can mover the tank forward to get the screws in.

Thankyou..Tomorrow I will change the anti-freeze , then mount the LED lights on the sliders, zip tie cords, install fuses in the PC-8, re-install the dash shelf, mount the gps to its mount and re- install all of the plastic, then call Yamaha to order one of the hex head screws that disappeared into the bermuda triangle of the innards of the bike.
