525 EXC auxillary tank

Recommended Posts

I was in Randsberg over the weekend and saw a 04 525 EXC with a auxillary tank that mounted up opposite to the exhaust pipe. I talked to the owner of the bike and he told me Baja Designs just came out with it about two weeks ago. I took some pictures of it, but don't know how to post them. If someone wants to send me their e-mail address, I will pass them on for you to post. The cost was about $150 annd it held something like an extra gallon.

They have an ugly black side plate tank, but this unit is something new (Im told). The picture on Baja Designs web site doesn't really do the tank any justice, but it's actually not to bad looking and they matched the orange pretty good.

They have an ugly black side plate tank, but this unit is something new and tucks behind the original side plate. The picture on Baja Designs web site doesn't really do the tank any justice, it's actually not to bad looking and they matched the orange pretty good. It's not for everyone, but for some of the longriders this is perfect.

This tank was on an 04 bike. I know many parts are not interchangeble between the 03 and 04. I could be wrong, but the owner of the bike told me they just came out with this tank that fits the 04 exc/mxc. It fits behind the stock side plate.

I have photos. I don't know how to load them here on TT, but provide me with a email and I'll send them to you. You could go to the source Baja Designs.

email from Mike Gunthe at Baja Designs, but photo is sick and I cant open it.

Hey Dave, I have attached a picture of the tank to this email. It's in black but we do have them available in orange. Right no I have only one orange in stock. We have a some more in production, and they should be available in about 2 weeks. The price for the tanks is $165. It include the tank, mounting hardware and fuel line/valve. It holds 1.1 gallons and nicely offsets the weight of the exhaust on the other side of the bike. If you have concerns about durability I will let you know that this tank survived the most recent Dakar Rallye. If you would like to order one or if you have any questions please give me a call.
