For normal trail riding, the biggest problem with the Polaris RS1 is likely the lack of storage. If you want to carry a spare tire, spare fuel, extra gear, etc., the RS1 is definitely space challenged. So depending on how you use your RS1, you might want to consider mounting on a fuel pack for more longevity and distance capabilities. While we wouldn’t suggest hauling gasoline if like spending more time in the air than on the ground, if you’re not racing or jumping your RS1, the risks commonly associated with fuel packs are highly diminished. That being said, the risks are still there, which is why cheaping out on a fuel pack that can break or leak is an extremely bad idea. It only takes one time of the lid not going on properly and allowing gas to hit that hot engine/exhaust for a fuel pack to ruin your day. And we’re not saying it could never happen, but with the right fuel pack -- and barring user error -- it won’t 99.99% of the time.
RotoPax fuel packs, for example, are among the better ones out there. They have literally ran them over with semi trucks and they’ve withstood it without breaking. IMS Products also makes a solid fuel tank that can add about four gallons to your rig. Fuel packs like these are easy to install, provide extra gas when your in a pinch, and most importantly, they’re safe. And because space in the RS1 is limited, mounting them to the roll cage or frame clears up room for other essentials. We’ve seen some use ratchet straps to secure their fuel packs, but using a $20 strap to hold down a tank of flammable liquid on a $20,000 machine just isn’t the smartest thing to do in our opinion. Companies like Isota make a variety of great fuel tank brackets to mount your gas can wherever you want. Joker Machine Mounts, Trail Bright LED, and Koplin also have fuel pack mounts that work great. Whether you’re going on a long excursion in the deep woods or trail riding alone, fuel packs can give you that added piece of mind and will get you where you need to go when things don’t go according to plan.
