Been waiting for almost a Month for my Acerbis tank and by chance saw a second hand one for sale.

So i cancelled my order, and got this unit for 109Eur less  :thumleft:
Great that it still has the instructions and mounting screws + O-rings available.

Too bad that I've got meetings lined up until 17:00  :(

OK, gaan gerus aan, importeer nog maar klomp droolgoods.... wat aankom in blitstyd, minimale (indien al enige) kak met belastings of papierwerk, en boonop sal jy dit kry, niks raak weg nie!
Toe, gaan aan asseblief?

The new tank uses the existing pump and fittings.
I decided to replace the filter too:

Pump fitted, and tank mounted. All went without much hassles.

The Acerbis is well made and fits perfectly

Final part was to fit the tank shrouds and side covers.
The shrouds fitted like a glove, the side covers are a bit more of a stretch but I managed eventually.

I must say, I like its beefier look  :thumleft:

Seems the 2017 tower side covers are the best option but I will definitely have to reshape them a bit to allow for the fender to move freely.

I like the look with or without them, but will see where this goes

Got me some stickers on black Friday sale  ;)

I now use the 2020 screen and 2017 fairing.
Although not all fitment holes line up, between the two, it's a minor issue for me.
I will drill two more holes in the fairing side panel and add some grommets.

On the positive side, I can now upgrade to a 2021 model and this tower, screen and the extra side panels will fit perfectly.
:thumleft:










I had to reposition the indicator, fitted to the most convenient location.


Now i need to find something for that empty side cover..

I've been in two mids about the seat.

I kinda prefer the stock navy blue colour. So the question is:

Seat concepts Tall in blue


..or not:

???

What I do know is that my ass will need either of the two

Finished the other side's decals last night and took it for its 1st ride, since fitting the recently added parts.

I now notice the slightly wider tank and also the increased wind protection, provided by the extra side covers + tank.
On tarmac, it's definitely more DS worthy now, but of course that means sacrifices offroad. -to be determined

The new clutch feels.. like new  :thumleft:

Maybe none of my business, but why the clear fairing?

All the latest rally fairings are like that. I guess better vision and can see wiring etc ... and show off the tech  8)  Fairings used to be fibreglass or composite but now with new polymer lexans etc they are lighter, stronger, safer as well - aesthetically also makes the bike look lighter.

Nee jy's welkom.

It's as BigDom says.

This setup has completed many Dakar's before, and it was probably copied from the ktm factory part.

On that note, the alternatives to my kit (MotoMinded, NomadAdv) use the actual Ktm rally screen, available as powerpart.
I prefer the RadeGarage kit over those 2 for its carbon fiber tower construction.
