clarke 4.0 tank install question (foam?)

6 posts in this topic

Good Morning,

Received the clakre 4.0 tank and am going to install it today on my xr650l.

Question - Where does the foam go? Do I wrap the frame by the front mounts or near the rear bolt, or along the whole ridge?

thanks in advance,

JT

Basically it's wrapped lengthwise around the top tube between the mounts & rear bolt flange. Just dry fit the tank & you'll see the best location to strap the high heat foam on the frame in relation to the tank saddle. Electrical tape works to set the foam in place first, but also use some zip ties to secure it after using a few bands of tape.

Tank installed and driving range increased.

It fits really well and very secure.

Thanks,
