What is the difference between the 2005 tank and the tank in the picture?

yes.

the new part number is FM510C. The cap has an improved seal and seal retainer. Also the the neck of the tank is shorter.

The roll bar (sway bar)controls the amount of roll that end of the chassis has.

With no roll bar on, the car will roll until the springs stop it thus giving you traction. That being said, it will alsom make the reaction time from going side to side (think chicane) longer and the car might feel a little more lazy.

With the roll bar on, the roll bar helps (the springs still has a factor in side to side roll as well) control the amount of roll the car has and tries to keep the outside wheel down. You'll have a little less traction (depending on the thickness of the roll bar) and the car will be more reactive going side to side.

Try it both ways and see what you like. I personally prefer my cars to have roll bars on, as I like my cars to be more reactive and to slide a bit.

I have received the new tank. See attached pictures for the difference with the old tank & also the new tank lid. The only difference with the lid is the retaining clip.

Default tank

Note the throat of the opening is also in a bevel shape becuase of capacity problem. What happened was that the old tank was not a true 125 cc tank and most drivers in WC last year had a disadvantage vs other brand's tank. This is the main reason a new tank is to be devised.
