Thanks for the quick reply's. Decosse, I used the same bolt that was in there when I bought the bike, the other side came out just fine so Im sure its the correct size bolt. The gouges there were not there before and were done by me with a bar trying to get some pressure on the bolt to get it out. I have ran that bolt back in and out of the hole and it is still good. But, it was leaking before I pried off of that so it could have just been over tightened the last time which is why it got stuck in the first place, I will try the JB weld, luckily my dad keeps a lot of that around lol.
Motovation, I checked the entire tank once I got it off looking for a small trail or drip, especially around the fuel pump connectors, and I didnt see anything.
