Horray! Finally got my Acerbis LR Tank!

Recommended Posts

eBay is a wonderfull thing! :)

For the past few months Ive been getting around to buy a new Acerbis 20 litre long range fuel tank for my XR4, with the big miles I do.

I was going to order it form Ballards in Sydney. Pretty damn expencive! $680 Aus!($540 US) But I was prepared to pay for it.

Just a few days ago, my dad emailed me a few things for sale on ebay. One of them was this!

http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=4527698442

I just thought HOLY SHIT! And just about had a heart attack when I saw it!

Its basicly brand new, only been used twice, no damage! When I first saw it, it had 2 days left on the auction, and was going for $100!

I thought I had to have it! So I straight out put a $500 bid on it! Thats still $180 cheap!

Towards the end of the auction Other people were bidding like mad, but all in vein, They only got up to $255! No where near my $500! :D

So I ended up winning the tank for only $255! Thats $425 off! Gotta be Damn happy with that! :)

So I'll pay for it tomorow, and he'll send it!

Cool huh!

HAVE FUN! :p

I just got the same tank off eBay for $110 USD. The seller had been using for his xr600, so I needed to buy the appropriate mounting hardware. Apparently, the mounting hardware is back ordered from Acerbis until mid-March. So my friend made some for me in his shop. Works great.

The Acerbis tank is the same for XR250/400/600. To mount on the 250/400, requires longer brackets than is needed for the stock tank.

The tank holds 5.8 gallons and has two petcocks. It'll be great for Baja rides. :)

Engine # 9? Whats that? Is that some sort of train or somthing a bloody huge tank or somthen?

Thanks for that info BajaThmpr, I did not know that. Yes I'll have to make somthen up at work to fit it. Peice a piss! :)

With a nice big tank like that I wont have to fill up 5 times on my way to Perth! (450km/280mile trip)
