Default Battery holder, fitments wrong?

Hi guys, I'm working on the frames.
I kan't quite figure out how the battery brakket skrews are installed.

the frame hits the gas tank... i've taken a few piktures to try to point my issue visually.

I've put a nut on a skrew to try to lift the tank a bit... but it's not perfekt... perhaps i'm missing some spašer part ?

If someone šan post a piš of the original assemble I would aprešiate.

now I noticed the pics aren't that great... the problem is that the frame hit's the tank preventing a snug fitment on the bracket... theres a space between.

Looks like you are missing the cushions that go with the screws that secure the tank to the bracket. There should be 2 rubber pieces for each screw, looks like you only have the top piece.

no I have the upper and bottom along the spacer...
https://cdn.partzilla.com/diagram/su...405840fdd9.png

part 14 15 and 16 ? I believe that what you mean

I'm puzzled... can't figured out wheres the problem... I was wondering if the spacer is too small( I ordered stock... so I believe it's right) but will try to measure it partzilla says 1,8cm.

But it's possible I used the wrong one, I ordered lot's of spacers... (although I believe I measured it already

can someone confirm if the spacer is 1.8cm?
because if it's bigger that might be the problem...
it seems on the first photo the bottom rubber it's a bit too squashed.

Whatĺs the front cushion on the front of the tank look like? Also looks like the tank needs to go forward a little. The cross brace should have cushions also. Is that bondo?

the front cushion, is worn, the brace cushions are new. the tank is supposed to be all the way way forward, but I will check.

I guess it's not bondo... where?!

can someone get me a photo of how the correct assembly of the bracket looks like?

I will remove the nut (that is working as a spacer) It will allow the tank to go forward a bit I guess.

Ok, check spacer, 1.8cm on the dot, but the washer was wrong, with other washer gain 1mm hehehe
removed the front tank cushion, was glued with silicone, cleared the silicone and the tank move maybe 3mm to the front.
remove the nuts I put to lift the tank (and now I remembered why I used the nuts, it was because the tank screws was way offset)
the clearance to the fairings are acceptable, but now the tank screws are pushing the cushions way too much.
I'm really lost.

also, i'm struggling with the fairing fixtures, since I didn't have stock fixtures in when I bought the bike, just some random screws and no washer or cushions... I don't know what goes where. and there's some fairings holes that don't have the part on the fiche... and I can find any information on the service manual....
Here's one example:

I have post kats, so not entirely sure. But on 98+, the bracket is parallel to the ground where the tank attaches and yours is angled. You also have fairing attachment points that are at least slightly different than mine. But 100% the Allen headed bolts that are holding the bracket to the frame are incorrect. (I know, that doesn't actually help any...)
I can take pics of my set up, but again...it's a 98, not sure how useful/relevant that is
