Acerbis Gas Tank
Posted March 17, 2005 - 10:26 AM
So . . .
Is Acerbis a good tank? (I was lleaning towards the ZipTy IMS tank but have read some complaints about how low the fuel lines are and how the petcock works.)
Do I have to change radiator shrouds. Heard something that I have to use YZ shrouds instead. I also have Radiator guards from Flat Land racing. Will that create a mounting problem? (They have rear support like the unabiker guards)
Any suggestions about the cheapest place to to bike the tank and shrouds?
Thanks for your time

I managed to use the WR shrouds with a little flexing and using a longer bolt on the center shroud tank bolt.

Does it work with the unibiker rad guards?
The left side fit fine but on the right side I had to pound out the bottom part of the brace with a ball peen hammer. At least that was the case on my '05 WR450. It didn't take that much work and it fit fine after the modification.

This tank gives me a lot of range and when riding on a mx track I fill the lower part only to keep the center of gravity lower.
