Kolpin 4 Gallon Fuel Pack and mounting

Hey all, I have a quick question about the Kolpin 4 gallon fuel packs and mounts. I want to mount one to the front rack on my 12 sportsman 800. Should I be using one mount or 2? I have heard some dealers say one is enough. Whats your experience with this? I also may want to strap some other stuff to the gas can later or at least pile some stuff on it and strap it to the rack extension...

I went two, in rough stuff bad things could happen with the torque put on the single mount...













Be VERY CAREFUL when filling the tank and filling the quad with the tank. The weight of the tank full of fuel CAN AND WILL SPLIT THE PLASTIC TANK!! The weight of the filler hose and nozzle WILL SPLIT YOUR KOLPIN TANK!!!

BEEN THERE DONE THAT!

OOH and be prepaired for leaks and venting in the hot sun is also a issue... I found it best to remove the nozzle and use the cap only NOT THE NOZZEL CAP when its stored on the machine.

Mine split, its ALLOT of money to have lost and I only used it maybe a dozen times... Now I use the 1.5gal cans UPRIGHT so no leaks.




Good luck,
CW

Remember all, when bolting things especially heavy things through plastic. Washers are your friend!
