I have found over the last month that in order to get this OEM part to work I MUST use a Flathead Screwdriver on some of the mounting points to PUSH the Dzus deep enough into the hole for it to get a good bite. This is because of the depth of the mount in the Trail Tank.
Yesterday I found a better solution.!!
Polaris makes a near identical part, but with a shaft length 1-2mm longer. Polaris - 7661969 - STUD-1/4 TURN 6MMX16MM
Whats more, the retail is nearly HALF of what Yamaha gets for the same item.
Thanks for the updates Chris, this has all been ETREMELY helpful!!!
I will now be ordering and installing one of these new Trail Tanks for my Nytro as well, especially knowing they now utillize the stock Yamaha hood fasteners!
Quick question though, with this tank on do you or anyone else notice if the fuel guage is still relatively accurate? ie: 1/2 tank shown on the fuel guage is actually 1/2 tank/half range for the machine? Not a big deal, but I'm curious.
To be honest I have NEVER run this thing down to empty yet.
The extra volume has allowed me to play all day long and NOT go dry.
So I am not entirely sure.
I suspect there is MORE gas left than indicated, but I can't confirm.
