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.

Bigger tank for your TTR?

Hi everyone. 

 

Just thought I’d post up another acerbis tank that fits. The serial nlumber is 

 

TU1-5180389 - appears to be an older tank for xr250/400/650l and is a 25l tank not 22

 

i bought it thinking it was the 22l one but it fits fine with the zen kit.

Cheers Leigh.

Hi Leigh

Thanks for posting, that is greatsmile If the Zen kit fits, then our totallyttrs one should toosmilesmilesmile As the mounting holes on the tank are the same.

For what it’s worth you don’t have to make brackets to move your indicators for the blue bikes you can get away with doing this instead....

Kia ora all,

Has anyone had any experience with an acerbis tank cracking? I'm not talking about in an unintentional dismount, I mean with age or something.
I got a 2nd hand xr acerbis tank and fitted it with the adapters from totally ttr. After a few weeks (not riding it much, need to use other bike for work) I noticed a strong fuel smell, then noticed pink residue on thee tank. I took the tank off and there are tiny cracks all over the part where the tank meets the frame where fuel leaks out. I can't find any mention of this sort of thing with a Google search.
Any ideas?

Cheers,

First time I have heard of a problem, was the tank very old?

Not sure how old it was, was a bit yellow rather than white and the pet****s were a bit buggered so I'm guessing fairly old.

The 1st XR200 had a steel tank ( twin shock unit) but I thought they were more like the XL250S tanks

My mate has had a XR200RD from new, plastic tank

Just seen some photos of XR250 tanks fitted - see below.

Would need some front support brackets making. Fits well to seat apparently. Only issue mentioned is that the XR fuel tap may hit the throttle on the carb.
