82 XL250R plastic tank

Recommended Posts

Hey,

I had a look through the archives but I couldn't find any info pertaining to this specific model year. I'm buying a 1982 XL250R in the near future and at some point I'd like to invest in a plastic tank for it.

What I'm wondering is will a plastic tank + seat off a newer XL/XR (say from a 1989 or newer) fit on the ears and mounting holes, or will I have to do some grinding and welding to make it fit? There's a guy who rides around town on a 1987 XL with a tank off a mid-nineties XR, so this is why I think it might be possible.

Thanks for any replies,

Isaac

clark has a fuel tank that fits nice.I have one on my 82XL500 it fits the 250 also holds more fuel too!The 82 xl250 and 500s are kind of basterd bikes not much fits plastic wise from most other xls or xrs.I have all 82 250s and 500s xl and xrs.You can still get seat covers in almost any color.I put a red one on my 500 and it looks sweet.Hope this helps.
