has anyone removed that cover under the gas tank that just seems to catch dirt and water? Is there a rason to keep it in there? Opinions?
I would have to agree with this. It has to have something to do with it. Cuz its channel shaped with a ledge on both sides then funels down to a small exit at the back of it. Which is out of the way of the engine. I would probley say it helps those time when your filling the bike after you have been running it (hot engine and exhaust) and you over fill the tank, till it spills out over the top of the tank and down the sides, then runs under the tank and insted of dripping right there on top of the hot heads or headers and starting a fire, its rolls down that rubber cover to the back of the engine (toward the seat area) then drips.Tiggyboot said:I wonder if it's there to keep gas from getting spilled onto the engine and exhaust if you accidently over fill the tank? I belive there is a hose attached to the bottom that exits out the side of the frame, near the coolant bottle.
What purpose would it serve to remove it? Does he think they put it there for no reason?Zebradog said:I don't know, all I know is that I have never seen it on another quad ever. My friend wants to rip his out, but I thought I'd check and see if there was a reason to have it there.
