the brackets for this tank will not fit your bike. the radius of the clamp that is suposed to go around your fork is too small, it might fit an 80 cc machine. The bracket also does not stand the tank off far enough to allow room for the electrics that are behind the number plate of a 2012 yz250 f. I made my own brackets rather than trying to modify the ones that came with it.

Good little fuel tank to go the extra miles if you cant afford a desert tank. Fuel siphons out of it first so after you burn the gallon + of fuel its just a plastic tank where your number plate was. I have rode 1000+ miles with it on, never once affected my cornering, handling ect. pre-running the Baja 1000. Even mounted a light in front of it fairly easily.
Don't put on a straight MX bike. The only reason it got 2 stars is it may be good for someone who just trail rides a long distance or the same for maybe a ATC with number plate / or quad mounted in some fashion? Might be fine for a hunter that uses a trail bike for the back country...then again just get a 4x4 quad with oversized tank...
It was a lot bulkier than I thought it would be. The band clamps didn't fit my YZ 250 forks. It does what its supposed to, holds gas wihtout leaking and siphons easily. The best way to describe riding with this product is to strap a 2 year old kid to your # plate and try to ride. This may be a good product for someone who rides flat smooth roads and you need the petrol. I ride on single track in the desert. It kept my front tire planted to the dirt which almost made me wreck everywhere when trying to pop over rocks. I let my friend ride my bike with it to make sure I wasn't crazy. He agreed it sucked. I knew it would affect the bike, but not that much. Waste of $62 in my opinion.
