Isle of Man TT large F3 fuel tank

Have you seen the fuel tank installed on the 2013 Valmoto MV Agusta Team IOMTT bike? I didn't know that they needed a larger tank for the race or what is the purpose for changing the tank?

Yup, seen that, I'm going to move your thread to the racing section if you don't mind, there's another young guy from France also going around, quick fix job.
I'll let Ade and Juan fill in the details, but the a lap of the TT is a very quick way to drain a fuel tank.

the only reason for the larger capacity is that they can't get two racing laps out of the standard tank.
