....fuel tanks, for X Challenge (and X Country and theoretically even the X Moto, etc):


We can no longer get Industry X tanks, (see pic) so are will now likely be modifying BMW 800GS auxiliary tank 's brackets to then accept the 800 GS CAMEL tank - the fit - other than the brackets - is near-perfect, and it is a useful size - 7L - giving the necessary range.


CAMEL tank: https://camel-adv.com/collections/bmw/products/bmw-f800-camel-tank-v2-ct-v2


I will post updates HERE as I see pics/development - but someone with an X Challenge has yesterday bought a CAMEL tank with the plan to slightly modify the mounting brackets (2) to fit the X Challenge bolt locations.


there one or two other people watching this progress, so will post here...


More then...!

thanks, Dirt Rat - realized after you left the Store that - unusually - we took no details down!
Can you give us an idea - here on WD - if/when you make any progress? One or two guys wanting to do same concept as you attempting!
thanks, Chris & Team

Will do - should complete by tomorrow - it is really straightforward but does require totally different brackets.

thanks, will wait for pics/description.  :thumleft:
Would you consider manufacturing say 5 sets of brackets - if you have the design 'tied down'?

Sorry Chris at best I am a semi skilled diy bodger - fabricator I am not but I will try to get the brackets to you when complete and someone with better skill can copy/improve on them.

perfect, yes, we have 2 fabricators here in Paarden Eiland, and I also need 950/990 side-stand reinforcing brakets making up, so will take on both projects, etc.
thanks, Chris

5L tanks (designed for 650 twin/700 twin/800 twin) are now on special for R4999, I think we have only 2 or 3 left, and bear in mind the BRACKETS will need to be made to fit, etc, but the chap mentioned HAS done it, and I think he has posted pics somewhere - will take a look to see if I can find them...


Previous thread HERE: he first fitted a Camel Tank, THEN a 5L water tank in it's place, since he rather fitted a Touratech (read; Safari) tank up front:

Yes, Blue and Red are near identical, just the red tank is 'flowed; with an additional gas, (fluoron?), etc.
Yes, R5K is quite a lot, sorry, should have been 7L capacity and
not 5L..., and yes, they are U$D 399+ is the States, if you multiply that by 12, add shipping, then add 14% VAT, you can see that the R4999 is indeed a special, for a plumbed-in tank.

OK - scroll down to bottom of this page/start of this thread - THAT tank, CAMEL tank, is now R5K....
the 5L fuel cell is indeed R450 incl.
One is a fuel tank, the other a fuel cell!

Apologies for the crossed lines then! How does the fuel cell attach to the bike?  You have in stock?

Yes, we have in stock, both water cell and fuel cell...
We stock FOUR different mounting systems, any chance you can pop in, or else I can try and tell you the difference on here...
