Alt. fuel tanks
Posted June 06, 2002 - 12:44 PM
I've got a 98 YZ 400, and I'm wondering if you've heard of any ingenious fuel tank add-ons (additional tanks) I can get a hold of to increase my range. I know they make one that replaces the front number plate, and I've seen one that mounts on the rear fender, any others y'all have seen?

I also had a A-loop one that replaces your number plate opposite your muffler. It worked OK for 4 HS races until my subframe broke, causing me to DNF my 5th HS on it. Gas was spewing everywhere. Too much stress on the subframe, and that was the steel of the 99YZ400F. I bet the aluminum subframe would fare even worse. Dont recommend that one.

Well, I am going to ride the Jumping Cow enduro, near Agate. Its around 6K ft, so maybe it will be a little cooler. You are welcome to ride on my minute with me and my 2 friends if you like. One is a better B guy than me, the other is a C rider. You can find info at www.racermec.org
Theres an area west of me called Johnny Park that has riding, off of US 36. Its not Taylor Park, but it can entertain you for a while. If you want to ride rocks, you can ride Lefthand Canyon, in between Boulder and Lyons, lots of trails.
The Nothern Colorado Trail Riders have a ride planned in Rand, I would have done that if there wasn't an enduro nearby. Check out:
