    Fuel clunk

    Does this look normal to you guys? Is it me or is this cheaply made? A washer to hold the outer filter? [emoji848]

    Fuel leak

    How are you guys dealing with the stock tank and or cap leaks? Even the top rubber grommet where the two fuel hose comes out leaks. It's getting annoying at this point. Replacing it might sound better then doing any mods to it. But I need advise if there's any simple solution to this. Thank you

    Normal to leak gas?

    Is it normal for the tank to leak gas if the buggy is tilted to its side? I remember even reading in the manual, they say not to lean it or tilt it to the side of the gas cap because it could leak. This doesn't sound normal to me. Any mods you guys have made so it doesn't leak?
