Safari Trail Fuel Tank
Posted January 09, 2011 - 01:11 PM
I run a 2005 WR450 and have the IMS 3.1 gallon and the Acerbis 6.6 gallon.
I would like to see some pics of the Safari 4.1 gallon tank (on the bike) if anyone has some to show...the one in the pic on the website doesn't show all the angles on the fitment and want to see some before dishing out $500 bucks.
I need that little extra range on some trials between the 2 tanks I have. No I do not want a number tank or side panel tank or just fill the 6.6 half full...
Any info on the 4.1 would be very appreciated!!!

No I do not want to just fill the 6.6 half full...
Okay, well now you just have me curious on why filling the 6.6 half way isn't something you want to do? Are you tank guy and just likes being able to swap out tanks. I bet your the guy that used to have old nike sneakers where you could swap the color of the swoosh.
I think that might be a picture of it?

Thanks for the pics and the reply.
By any chance, did you sit on your bike and feel the width of the tank? I am just curious as to how much wider the Safari 4.1 is than the stock tank or other options like the IMS or Clarke. Did it feel wider to you?

I had an IMS 3.1. It was slightly wider then stock. Mostly up above where your knees /legs would hang.
The Safari 4.1 did feel wider, but not alot. Maybe an inch on each side at the spot where your legs ride. I'm not real picky about my riding position though. No racing, just trail riding and dualsporting.
I ended up with a Clarke 3.6. Compromise on capacity, slimmer around the knee area and I could use my radiator braces I already had on the bike.
Here is the stock, IMS with shrouds and the Safari.
