Source for Acerbis Tanks

16 posts in this topic

Since Acerbis only sells thru dealers and Rocky Mt and Chaparrall dont seem to carry this tank for the 04 WR, who does that is reliable and comp. on price.

and I can order via the net.

My local delaer is not an option, as I wont buy from them.

Thanks in advance.

When I looked up "Fuel Tanks" in the Baja Designs online catalog it only listed IMS fuel tanks. But in the back of the catalog they have a section showing all the parts they sell for the WR, and lo and behold, the Acerbis tank is listed. :applause:

The only Acerbis tank I saw in the TT store was for an older YZ. Where did you guys find your tanks at? I've been thinking about getting rid of my IMS and going with the Acerbis tank.

I called the TT toll free number and they helped me out.

The GYT-R 12.9L tank is Acrebis.

So just go to your yamaha dealer!

I heard the Yamaha dealer will charge more for the GYT-R tank than the Acerbis tank. Yeah, I know they're the same!!

Just get the RRP and show them that! Dealers piss me off too. You can always talk them down on price.

Said Scotts bought Acerbis and that the tank was discontinued???????????

I am not claiming either is true, although the TT store seemed to confirm some sort of arrangement between Scotts and Acerbis USA.

That would stink if IMS was the sole source of tanks right now unless IMS gets their fit and finish back up to spec.

Clarke tank is only a 2.8 so why spend the cash for .2 gallons more.

FYI I did get 85 miles out of the stocker recently, but I purposely paid attention to how I was riding as I was way out and couldnt afford to run out. Although I did bring a handle bar/cross bar mounted Maier 2 quart jug for insurance, which Maier no longer makes either.

Will have to wait until monday to find out whats going on and if the Acerbis tank is still in production.

Yes it would stink... My last IMS was a pile.....

The only reason I can think someone would buy the Clarke is to have the drybreak feature or a natural finish. Clarke makes great tanks just not the one we all need....... A true 4 gallon...

I just found one in stock with Motosport Outlet $199 plus free shipping, so I took it. Everyone else told me its on back order too. Started to panick, with the WORCS races and AZ cross country series starting up here soon I didnt want to be stuck with the stocker. And re-purchasing an IMS was not an option. Unless I wanted to be burned alive. :applause:
