The bike was heavy and I needed help to drop the bike without damage.
Hi Albee,

That what i was planing to avoid, a friend of mine have the same problem, its just a pain in ass.

But with the Acerbis you dont have the issue as they come with a petcock in each side of the tank.

But apparently Acerbis discontinued fabrication of those tanks for '99 xr600's.

Can tell you about IMS as i've never saw one in fact.
