WR/YZ 426 Zip Ty fuel tank?
Posted August 02, 2004 - 06:11 PM
I was aware that I would probably need the remote hot start. Now I sure see that I will. Are most people happy with the Zip Ty hot start?
Also, how the heck do you use the choke? Or is it accesible with the remote hot start installed? It sure is tight in there!
One last thing. I bought a tank that had been used as a dry break. I am installing an aluminum threaded collar and cap, but there is also a small hole on the side of the tank for?? I assume it was for a breather? Zip Ty sent me a small fitting to go in the hole and I believe to attach some hose to? Any help is appreciated. Thanks...Ty

Even though it has some issues, I still like it due to the shape and the fact that it lowers the fuel CG.

Note: I have the latter petcock with a standard on/off/reserve and rear facing exit.(Front facing exit if flipped like mine is.)

Why do you like the Dr. D hot start better? Any particular reasons?
I assume your talking about the secondary petcock? Mine is a used tank and came with a kind of cheesy screw knob petcock. I may change that if I can come up with something better.
I think I will be real happy with the tank design overall though. Except maybe the choke access. Or lack of. Thanks again....
