An inline filter is on its way. What I was told by the po was that he bought it for his wife in 06 for her to learn on. That didn't happen. Every spring he drained the gas (put it in his lawn mower), rode it to get inspected and filled it back up only to sit in the garage the rest of the year. I'll pull the tank again and take a look, but I still would like to know if a plastic tank exists that will bolt up with minimal modification (preferably to the tank not the bike).
