RE: Acerbis tank fitting to a blue TTR

Fibreglass. I am pretty sure it was a genuine Yamaha extra. Never seen another like it!

It's got to be out there in TTR land somewhere wink

Standard seat as I recall.

Fitting a XR650 Tank
Permalink  
 


Hello Guys, newbie here but i straight off have a question :)
Bought myself a TTR in Cape town, but i need a bigger tank for some trips!

So now i found a tank, that i could even pick up, thats quite close!
https://www.gumtree.co.za/a-motorcycle-replacement-parts/goodwood/xr-650-fuel-tank/1002081956080910824521909

But as i read on the TTR250 site, there are some XR650 tanks that dont fit, dont want to buy something i cant use :D

And is it complicated to fit the tank? 

Thanks for any advice!

Hi Semmy
A couple of TTR's in Cape Town I know of. I am looking at going the 21l route. The tanks are not to dear, but shipping kills it. Maybe a Cape Town group buy to save us all some bucks. I have found a XR600 tank, but the red doesn't work for me. Clear is the way to go.

Welcome to the forum!
From the "larger tank for ttr" thread in the modifications section:

"After reading the info in this thread I have now had a Acerbis 22L tank fitted to my blue TTR. I used a XR650L tank but only because this was the one in stock. I believe the XR250 and XR400 tanks are exactly the same (just with different fitting kits perhaps - none of which is good for the TTR). "

So it needs to be from an XR650L.

If it's that close, ride over with spanners to remove your tank and see if it sits in place ok. (ie fits over the frame ok and meets the seat at a good angle)

Thanks mossproof! Yes see i dont know if its a 650L or 650R tank :D
Ya could maybe to like you said, and ride over :)

And katana, also in Capetown with a TTR? Would love to meet up once, my TTR aint the prittiest, but would be down for a good adventure ride!
About buying a ton of tanks, ya would probably be cheaper but the 1000R seems better then 300 Pounds... My bike is not the fanciest :P

Tank is a 650L. Definitely not a 650R. The acerbis tank for the 250, 400 and 650L is exactly the same. Zen overland or the ttr shop has a fitting kit. Couldn't be easier. 

 

Here's mine with the tank and zen kit (and a pretty view 😉)

XR650L white tank

I have come across a white tank available locally.  Can one see the fuel level in the white tanks?

 Think I'm right in saying No not if its acerbis tank you cant see Fuel level in the white tank even in the sun light even in midsummer in the sun uk. But it should have two fuel taps one each side with reserve on each There is an US tank maker of long range fuel tanks think it's clark an they put a clear window in the tanks any colour so you can see it

Thanks man. It seems to confirm what a web search found. Our currency has tanked and I think buying now is a good idea. I really want a natural one though...

I will hopefully receive it tomorrow.  I asked the seller to check the capacity with water and he recons 18l.  That will be a 4.7 gallon tank then.  The only other confirmed is that it says XR600/650L.
