Pipe Clearance / Oversized Tank

Recommended Posts

Hey all, I own a 2000 YZ250 with a 3.1 gallon oversized tank. It hangs lower on the bike than the stock tank and comes in contact with my FMF Gnarly pipe so I have to use the stock pipe with the larger tank. Has anyone else run into this problem? Is there a different style aftermarket pipe that will clear an oversized tank on the 99-01 models? Procircuit? Fatty?

Thanks for any help on this one.

I'm not happy with the OEM pipe's performance and they are easily smashed in our tight eastern hare scrambles. The bike has a very on/off personality with the OEM pipe.

Are you sure the pipe is not tweaked causing it to sit higher?

I have the same set up (I have a fatty on it right now) and have no clearance problems with my 3.1 gallon tank making contact with my expansion chamber. I believe that the pipe must be tweaked somewhere.
