KTM 500 Acerbis 20L - Need mounting hardware?Help
« on: September 18, 2021, 11:25:12 am »
Hey fellas

I got a brand new Acerbis 20L tank for the 2016 KTM 500 - But it didnít come with ANY mounting hardware.

Anyone the can help me source these?

I donít want to remove any hardware from the std tank so need everything to be able to swap out tanks easily.

Also need a fuel pump for it and all the mounting hardware for thatÖ

Any ideas will be appreciated.

PS - I know the nut at the bottom from std tank isnít compatible and need a 90degree connection etc.

Where to get?

They standard fittings for the fuel outlet will work, pics below. It's not the best solution, but it's one that worked.

The screws that secure the electrical connection to the back of the tank are the same pitch and diameter, but are shorter than the oem ones: I accidentally swapped mine and pierced the end of the pocket.

I got a second LR tank from a guy who'd had an aluminium plate machined up as these tanks have a habit of warping at the back and then leaking. If you want I can pass on his number.

The screws are available in bolt packs, and they are also available under a name I don't recall. You might have to shorten a few. Best take a sample if you can and try a bolt supplier ?

Thanks for the info Mc!

Could you please send me his number - Perhaps I can get the dimensions of this plate?

Great Idea. I have 3 different tanks for my 2019 and fittings are easy to get so I have them for all 3. BUT the fuel pump is another story. There are many different aftermarket versions out there but you can never be sure that they are exactly the right pressure and flow. So its best to order OEM. The real problem is price. By the time you land a pump complete with hoses, fittings and filters, you spend more than you would on another tank. Aftermarket they're around 5k landed, OEM even more

Yup - So far all the components needed to enable a quick tank swap are about R8k.

Not a cheap exercise at all.

But whatís even more expensive is not using the bike for trips because of the hassle of fitting the larger tank and components.

From my research all the stock tank stuff fits on the Acerbis. KTM here in PE sell loads of the aftermarket fuel pumps and they SAY theyíre an equal replacementÖ

Not sure though, donít want to ruin a trip over R2kÖ

The system is pretty robust, the fuel pump pressure and flow is regulated by the pressure regulator and injector respectively. As long as you keep the in tank filter clean (which if it blocks up will overload and overheat the pump) you can expect a long life from the pump. I've got an aftermarket pump as a backup, and would be happy to use it if OEM packed up.

That's why I have 3 tanks. The std one is too small, my IMS is too big for most of my riding, so I have the 12.5L fitted 95% of the time, and only switch to the IMS long range tank for really long / out back trips.
