Call Acerbis, 800-659-1440. I had a 2003 WR with an Acerbis big tank, good choice over the other offerings available at the time. Even if they don't have a mounting kit available, they could tell you what hardware to buy. Or, you could just try some bolts and see what fits.

My Safari tank uses the mounts from the stock tank. You sure you need different hardware?

havent had a chance to call em but im thinking that the mount kit comes with the tank only.. found a picture of the kit and im probably just gonna make it since its pretty basic

after seeing the picture i found of the mount kit i realized that im missing the 2 "ears" that bolt onto the bottom of the tank, searched around a bit and found a place to get em, but i might just see about making my own as well as the mount kit..
