Looking for Larger Tank

6 posts in this topic

I posted for an Acerbis , but an IMS or Clarke would work fine also. Just want one that fits well without a lot of messing around to make it fit. Running DEVOL radiator guards.

Earlier:

I just put a brand new 3.3 Acerbis on my 05. Fit perfectly including choke as I had read on here (BIG THANKS). Now I find that I still won't have enough gas for some upcoming rides without packing it. So, I am looking for a used 6.6 Acerbis for a 05 WR450. I don't care if it is blue or clear. Only needs to be in good useable condition and the price is right.

You can also add gas volume on your side panels. Several companies offer a system that will replace the left number plate panel behind the air box.

I would consider this is you don''t want to raise the front of the bike with the larger tank. I'm sure your handling will change when the tank is full.

I'd be interested in your 3.3 for my 06, if you do go to a 6.6.

i would also recommend the side number plate due to the fact that you don't have all the weight up front. and you can take it off when your just doing shorter distances. i have one for my bike and it is great due to the fact that you can remove it when you do not need it.

but 6.6 gallons up front, your talking about a 55 to 60 lb change in weight throughout the day. that is a little too much for me.
