Me and my dad and his buddy went riding yesterday, excellent conditions out here in the hilltowns of western Mass just a little bumpy ;) anyways my dad's buddy had a 2000 ZL 600 EFI. I took it for a while going down the trail. Excellent riding machine, very smooth and I loved the throttle pull and response of the 600 EFI. The only thing I hated bout this machine was the damn huge 13 gallon gas tank on it. I was like constantly sitting on the thing and it hurt going over the bumps <_< ! I can remember all the magazines complaining about this 13 gallon tank used on only the 2000 models and they were sure right about it!

I have that tank on my 2000 T-Cat and I think it's great! If your a small guy I could see the problem though.

I think the extra size can really get you out of a jam out on the big lakes with not too many fuel stops.

My T-Cat gets a little thirsty :p :p at the big speeds, maybe there was no need for it on the smaller sleds. :D :D

I never had the 13 gallon tank bother me one bit, I am 6 feet.
It was especially nice when I went 164 miles without filling up.

I have a 13gal tank on my 2000 ZRT 800. I love it. I can easily get 100+ miles out of a tank of fuel. No problem riding, I am 5'6" and ~190 lbs.

rlh6805, I hope you aren't bragging about getting 100+ miles out of a 13 gallon tank?!? :huh:

With my 12 gallon tank on the '02 ZR8, I can get 150 miles and still not be dry!
