I just stopped to get gas on my 13 Cross Roads Classic with 19,000 miles and I noticed some play in my gas tank. Is it normal for the tank to be able to wiggle from side to side a little. I can also sort of lift it up a little. I'm not sure if this is standard or its actually loose. Does anybody know?

Mine has some side to side play too , I think a very small amount is normal . If it seems out of the ordinary I would just get a new set of bushings , be about 15-20 bucks ....

My tank is nice and tight. Not even a wiggle.
On yours, something is probably loose, misaligned, or missing.
I suggest you take the tank off and see what's going on.
Here's a Witchdoctors video showing how to install a Lloydz air filter, but there is a great section on tanking the tank off. (Starts at about the 2 minute mark)
Tip: It's a lot easier if you burn off most of the fuel.

I just called the dealer this morning and he said this was normal because of the rubber bushings. Thanks for your help guys.

My XR that I have had for 3 years and 10k miles tank is tight as it can be, no wiggle.
