Does anyone have brackets for a xr tank to a open enduro for sale or detailed pics on how to make them?

Cheers

Glen

The brackets I have here won't fit, looks like I will have to start from scratch. I have a tank here, so I will be getting on with this next week sometime.

Good to hear as I'm expecting a tax rebate soon and an acerbis tank is on my shopping list if I can get the brackets too.

You could try Ed the angry Pom, he is going the sell the TTR & could do with the money, he fitted a tank before going bush & is whinging about the cost & wasted money.
Think of it as a public service, buy the tank & he can put it towards an air fare to piss off back to the UK LOL

Found one brand new for $275 aud.
Around £162 gbp.

Picked it up north of Adelaide, an hour and a half away. Still in bag. Apparently the bloke was going to fit it to his TTR but it was too much trouble making the brackets. As long as it is all good (like no crossed threads / looks fine and all kit is untouched minus the fitting bags been opened) it was a bargain!

Hey Threshold.

I've got the zen tank mounting kit to suit the blue tank models. I wont be getting a tank for a bit so - just an idea. I could post you the mounting kit to see what you need to do to mod it or change to suit your OE, and make your own.

Cost you the postage to and back from Tasmania?

Cheers Leigh.

Work on the fitting kit went really well today.

Took 3 of us just over 4hrs to get the fitting kit worked out for the OE. Looking really good, amazing how long it takes to get a good mock up worked out and I reckon it will be another 4hrs work to get it good enough to take the prototype to my engineers.

I think it fits fantastic and will be a very strong and well built bit of kit. Brian took lots of photos, so hope to have some on here soon.

Thanks to Brian and Bob for their help today.

I can confirm that it was a tricky job getting the fit angles and tank height to look right.

Steve did the work whilst Bob and I just stood around drinking his coffee and making suggestions - some of which were actually useful wink
