CRF450X Long Distance Race Bike Build
« on: November 24, 2015, 01:13:48 pm »
Anybody got one for sale? IMS 15 litre or Acerbis 15.5 litre, hopefully in natural or white.  I'm not looking for the massive supertanker Safari or Acerbis 25 litre jobs.

I'll also consider rear tanks, if anybody wants to get rid of those.

You and me both.. been scouring the earth for these tanks but its like hens teeth, I have the Clarke on now which is about 12/13L but that extra 2.5l mates a big difference... ive been considering bringing in rear tanks but then.. and im open to correction, you have to reroute the exhaust.

Bill I have the 13lt tank for sale if you interested
Fuzzy you can get a Safari 5lt rear tank that fits with standard pipe, the 8.5lt tank requires a re- route.

Thanks, if I go 13 I have to buy the expensive 8.5 rears, which I'm trying to avoid.  Appreciate the offer though.
