See LeCap's view on which aftermarket tanks are less or more suited for the DR650. Probably in more than one thread on this board.

There are a few vendors who can source tanks - but DR650 parts are scarce in SA (www.renz.co.za may be able to help you out). Doing it yourself either from ebay or justgastanks.com will save you between R400 and R1000, depending on the tank and mark-up and all that.
I crash test all of my safety gear. Do you?

I imported mine from ProCycle in the US (based on opinions on the forum that they were unavailable here in RSA - subsequently found out that Runner (see post above) had stock).
Anyway, I fitted mine to the bike this morning without any problems (had to open up the hole for the petrol valve to get the stock Suzuki valve to fit - the valve supplied with the tank will fit without mods).
I haven't filled the tank yet to check for leaks (petrol prices being what they are I'll have to wait for my year-end bonus) but don't expect any problems.
I added another valve on the RHS of the bike; my plan is to keep this valve closed and only open it when I hit reserve. This will effectively use the lower RHS lobe of the tank as a reserve. (Note: One can accomplish the same without the second (RHS) valve by tilting the bike to spill the fuel from the RHS to the LHS of the tank where the current fuel valve sits, but I would rather not have to lay down/tip a loaded bike.
I also fitted in-line fuel filters, although I know that leCap and others advise that this is not necessary as the carb has an inlet filter.
