It's been awhile, but I think it's 46mm or 1 13/16ths.

thanks!

I got it yesterday, but was too f'ed up on fuel fumes and weirded out that i didnt come back online.

not to mention i was greasey to my elbows and i cant type on my purty white apple keyboard with even dirty hands lol

i had to end up taking the tank out and doing it that way, because my sockets were way too big to do it in the car!

i look foreword to never having another fuel issue!
