Default Mountain Addiction rack

Anybody have problems with these racks? I have the smaller fuel can and a cargo box. either going through the trees and a branch gets it or on jumps the fuel can always seems to fall off? Im not too impressed with the trapazoid shape of the mount... doesnt hold the fuel can well at all....

I have had 2 of them with no issues. Only time I have lost a can is either when I forgot the pin or when garage sale takes place while sled is rolling down the hill! Not to mention they are great to work with, perhaps a call to them and they could help you out if either the can or the tracks are a bit off.
Just a thought.

Ok, will do. and no they dont slide very easily at all, they just pop off the rails very easily upwards

I had the rack and dual jugs on my X. I was really impressed with the quality and thickness of material of the cans. Worked great for 2 seasons, but you need to be careful how you store them. I left one 1/2 full of fuel and closed tight and outside for a summer. The black can with fuel expanded and bulged (obviously) and never regained its shape. That can would no longer stay on the racks unless empty. the bottom had bulged and wouldnt sit right on the rack anymore.

Other than that which was kind of my fault.... I really liked them. Being able to match the cans color to my sled and the clean look of the hidden rack.

I had the large tank, won't own another. Tank had a leak on seam first fill up, called them was told to melt it with a lighter. Didn't turn out well, guess I suck with a lighter. .. Or should have been fine from manufacture?
Got the rails as straight as possible, still have to beat the gas can on and off. The crazy part... If I made a hard landing it would fall off!
Craigerbuilt solid all around.

I gave up on my set up. No matter how tight the rails were on the tank , there were times where the gas cans popped off .
The skidoo cas can set up from the revs work better IMHO .

I heard they were having an issue with certain colors of cans? Maybe the black I can't remember. They were getting hot and kinda of puffing up and popping them off?

But that was a few years back. I ran a blue and green can no issues. They were a bit tight when getting on and off but other then that.
