MXC tank hurts knees

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks:

I have an EXC with a MXC tank. The MXC tank hurts my knees where the vent allows the hot air to exit to the rear. The vent hole has a sharp edge that rubs the inside of my knees.

Is there a fix for this other than replacing the tank?

Thanks,

Tom,

The MXC tank bruised both my knees when I raced MX with it down at Glen Helen. I had a chance to check out an other 520 with an IMS tank on it, that's the way I'll be going. It looked great on the bike, almost as much fuel as the MXC ( 3.1 ) and no knee bruising reported by the owner! wink.gif

Thanks Guys:

I tried the knee pads this weekend and it helped some, but they didn't provide enough coverage. I guess I need to either get wider knee pads or the IMS tank.
