Would the 450r guys be interested in an aluminum gas tank?


i know your gas tanks are visible and not covered by plastics like a raptor persay... but i wanted to take a poll to see if my buddy may have any interest...

he's made a larger capacity aluminum gas tank for the raptor 700s that fits under the stock plastics! he did this because he just built an R1 motor raptor and needed more fuel.. but there was a demand for larger tanks from the desert guys...


i thought i'd throw the idea out because 1... you could paint or polish the aluminum tank would look sweet on a 450r.... you would get more milage out of it....

just a thought. i dropped him a message to see if it'd be something he would like to test the waters with


just talked with him... he said he'll make any atv a gas tank if they want... he just needs a stock one to go by.

hey guys my friend's name is Rich. His shop is getting up and started. He does powdercoating, fabrication, and lots more.

his regular email is

[email protected]

but his web site is going up and his new email will be

[email protected]



a stock raptor 700 gas tank holds 2.5 gallons. rich's tank holds just under 4 gals and still fits under the stock plastics!

he could go bigger on the raptors and you would have to remove the stock side plastics or modify them...
