Replaced the gas tank in my 87 trx350 the old one was like Swiss cheese, Very rusted out. I cleaned and rebuilt the carburetor, replaced the fuel filter and gas lines. Cleaned out the OEM fuel pump and tested it (works). I bought an IMS gas tank off amazon ($269) came with copper in tank pick-up lines, gas cap and new o ring for petcock. It fit right in using the old tank brackets. The new tank did not have screens on the ends of the fuel pick up lines in the tank. I ordered the two fuel screens off amazon. Over all a little over $300 to fix the fuel system on this quad. It had been sitting for 15 years, there was no saving the metal gas tank that was in it. Believe me, I tried. But i want a good reliable running quad so I spent the money to do it right. Long story short is, I picked this quad up a couple months ago for $400. It had been sitting for 15 years under a tarp in a guys outbuilding. I have put a lot of hours into fixing it up, the tank was the last piece to the puzzle that I needed to have it back in working condition again. Heck of a nice quad, I got super lucky scoring this deal. I have a newer Honda rancher and to my surprise, find this older Honda more fun to ride. And the build quality on it isn’t amazing. Sure wish they still built them this way. Anyways, this is my first real post on this forum. Just thought I would share about a common problem with these older quads, rusted gas tanks. IMS makes a quality replacement tank. Yes it’s costly but in my opinion worth the money.
