Wow! That difference in opinion/experience between Maverick 96100 DPelletier is significant. I'll have to go out to check my 6.6 gal tank fitment in the morning. It seem to fit just fine and there is a guard over the radiator, all of which were installed by the original owner.
I'll take a couple of pics tomorrow morning an post them.
I received this from IMS in response to my query about a crossover tube.
" Does your tank that you have on your KLR have some lift pumps or fittings on the bottom of each wing? The 6.6g tank doesn’t have any lift pumps or ways to transfer the fuel from one side to the other or to the pump in the center. Only the 10g tank that we offer will use those kind of lift pumps internally. The best way to get your fuel from one side to the other on the 6.6g tank would be just the old school way of leaning it over to that side. Sorry again for the delayed reply, but let me know if there’s anything else I can help with."
As the gent I bought my KLR from and others on the forum have suggested, I'm going to have to learn to drop my KLR over on it's dide to transfer fuel, which I'm finding is common for all tanks such as mine.
