Hi All,
Here is my first post on TT. great site for XR650L stuff !
I have an 01 XR650L and bought a 5 gal acerbis tank for it.
Here are my questions:
1- Do you have to relocate the voltage regulator or leave it where it is ? (my tank touches it right now.)
2- Did you install your tank with only one rubber piece that goes on top of the frame or did you use more than one rubber piece/other material to sit the tank on the frame ?
3- I find that the braces supplied with the tank do not align well with the holes on the frame....especially the rigth one....anything I should be looking for ? The tank is properly seated on the frame

any other tips (or close up pictures) on mounting the tank would be apreaciated.
Thanks and have a good one.

I put an Acerbis on my 650R, so I can't help with question 1 and 3 which are specific to the L, but on question 2, the tank is resting on the frame only on the 1 rubber piece supplied.
