Nice job. Sounds as though the kit is working out good for you. Get those studs moved over ASAP. The trails will turn icy and you will be needing them. You can always sell the old track, there are many requests for used tracks - at least down here anyway.
my advice to you is to add a cross rod front and rear to your rack to keep it ( the tank ) from sliding front to rear then use a ratchet strap just like you have in your picture of the bungies . my accy fuel can isnt as tall as yours but I still had issues with it wanting to tip/flip over when full and pounding the trails . your experience may differ. I`m just trying to offer up mine , as it may save you a headach (and a mess ) down the road . M
The test rides so far haven't revealed any problem with the can tipping over. The bungees are very tight. The was some minor movement though, and the can was rubbing on the bolt for the seat, so there are some issues to work out.
I do like the idea of the cross braces though, and I bought some aluminum rod just for that, but didn't get around to putting then on.
For mogul riding it's set up just about perfectly. Once we get lots of snow and I start cruising power lines I might have to look for more transfer, but so far I couldn't ask for a better set up.
