My beater/chase the kids/farm bike sprung a leak in the 30 year-old plastic tank. I found some exact matches on ebay for cheap... but as we know the stickers no longer stick and the tank looks lame (to me) with out some glitter on there. So, I decided to go for a steel tank since I rarely lay it down and don’t take good care of it anyway. So I found a steel tank listed as from an XR600R. I knew it was not from that bike, but from the pics I knew I could make it work with some custom mounting. It came today and looks like it’s going to be easy to do. My question, can anybody say for certain what this tank actually came stock on? I’ve found pictures that match the decal, but not the mounting flanges. I’ll post a picture or two once I’m done so you guys can drool at my ‘race ready’ XR 🤣
This is off of my 2013 498RR, I know it fits other models but this tank has the mounts for the newer (2014 + ) plastics. Don't know if the earlier plastics line up or not. It uses your stock petcock, so it doesn't come with one.
$125 plus shipping. PayPal is my preferred payment method.
While fueling my XR650 the other day, the IMS fuel cap came apart and the smaller piece dropped into the tank. Doing a little research, I found two styles made of plastic: (1) with 6 squared off cogs (2) with 5 rounded graceful cogs - pics attached. Mine is the former.
Yes, I can buy a new one, but if I can just buy a seal that would be great. Online pictures of a new cap show the same two pieces that I still have. The question is, what holds them together? Did it break or does the seal, a clip, or something else (maybe in the tank as well) hold the two pieces together?
