Oversize fuel tank question
Permalink  
 


Hello all:

I have two TTR's.  One is going to Moab in April and I want to set it up with the higher volume fuel cell for some longer rides than the stock 2.9 gallon tank can do reliably.

I have spent the last hour or so reading the archive at the TTR yahoo group, the TTR Faq, and the Farkling TTR20 page and the other sites.  I still have a question hoping someone can answer.

I understand the fuel cell for the XR250/400 is a little harder to install.  I would like to get the one for the XR650 that is easier to install, but I am not sure if its the XR650R or the XR650L.  In the USA the L model is an aircooled Dual Purpose machine, while the R model was a water pumping off road only machine.  The L model is a steel frame while the  have different frames, which is why I am asking.  Thus I am wondering if anyone has actually installed one of these on their TTR250

Thank you in advance for you advice.

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 😉)
