Can somebody give a quick review if they have used this Safari brand side panel tank?
Planning a trip and want to make sure it isn't a POS.

The honda bikes use a barret or similiar low mounted exhaust to use the twin sided tank. I was disappointed myself when i saw the bike only single sided in the safari reports.
I do know they (honda and yamaha) fill their main tanks with hot water and use low air pressure to increase its capacity, maybe up to 18 litres.
Id say most people dont want to buy a new low mounted exhaust just to use the double tank so yamaha never got it. , The Ghr /honda racing team however has a bigger wallet.
Lets us know if you find anything new though.

I still only see the smaller tank listed on their web site.
Guess you'd have phone them to find out if their available i'd like to get one but i have a pmb rack ive been carrying fuel with and I like the rack.

A question though, on the Aqualine website, it states this is a 5 litre tank, I presume this is the same one as in your photos Blackdog?
I know they have now also done twin-tank (10 litre) version, that required a lower exhaust - Tamsin Jones (from the UK) used one on her Dakar bike this year...
I'm hoping to get away with the smaller tank, as I'll have 20 litres up front.
Can you give me an indication of the actual capacity of your rear tank?

Anyway, does anyone have suggestions or experience with keeping the vent hose attached.
