All:

Can anyone give a heads up on Aux fuel tanks. I have read up on Koplin and others and there is a real mix of reveiws
Koplin seems to leak and people have to buy seperate caps

Any advice would be appreciated

Thanks

With the ability to go for much longer rides up by you I would think the costing would offset peace of mind !!

Even a one gallon can securely strapped can be a difference between riding and walking.

Thanks But I have flipped enough soft sided coolers over my head ( coming from the back rack being held with the supplied Velcro straps) not to do it right But it seems many like the Roto Pax products They have a good back order list right now Hopefully they will fill my order Two 2 gallon/ and the large flat plate mount to hold the two of them I am sure I may have to drill a couple of holes to get it to match up. Not a big deal I am putting this on Her machine 2012 Grizzly 550 with EPS, ITP SS ITP Terra Cross Radials HMF QRS header and Pipe HMF Flash Tuner and Voyager GPS with only 80 mile on it Santa was good this year Santa passed on my upgrade request this year I still ride my 2008 Grizzly 450 with HMF QRS header and pipe Re Jeted ITP SS and Mud Lights So I say let here carry the gas and I need to speak to Santa!!

Thanks for the help!

If those are ITP mudlites stock up on a bunch of tire plugs, they seem to be sensitive to rocks in the mountains, and portable air pump.

Doc

I have I guess had good luck so far But yes I have a compressor and will check the stock of plugs and wennies When I purchased the new 550 and since have the ridding areas are clossed down here I opted for more of a Hill /Rock terrain tire

But you are correct there are a lot of bare areas post the paddles so to speak that a sharp rock can easily find its way through.....

Good call Keep em coming If you think of anything else to add to my short list
Please do
Winch Check
Extra Fuel Working on it no return call from roto pax Bummer
GPS Two
Hand Held radios Check
Tow Strap Check
Compressor Check
Tire Plugs Checking stock
Hand Tools Check
First aid kit Check


Thanks again
