How much give on the tank on my 2011 Speedmaster?

Stupid noob question. Recently noticed there is a little 'play' in the fuel tank. A quick glance shows all screws in place. It's not much. Maybe a quarter to a half inch. Don't worry, or tighten?

It's fine. The tank is mounted on rubber to allow a little play and avoid any issues with vibration.
