Thanks for those links. Unfortunately none of the tanks in those links look like the tank or shrouds in the picture I posted.

My quest will continue!

I finally found the answer to my own question.

The tank is made in Japan and is really built for racing. It takes RMZ 250 shrouds, not included in the hefty price of about $900!

I think it makes the bike look so much better, but it only holds 5 litres.

Here's the site: http://www.rs-***uyama.co.jp/data/data002.cgi?id=6

The filtering software of this site won't allow fu and k.... so just copy the links and paste, and put f u k where the *'s are then it works - no spaces.

That's cause of the filtering software it won't allow fu and k together. :thumbsup: So if replace the 3 asterix with the three letters f, u and k the links will work.

For $900 you could get a TIG welder and build your own...

Thanks, now you've got my gears rollin. And I have some Al sheet laying around and a friend with a TIG welder. Time for some R&D!

This site is such a bad influence. So many cool things to do to a DRZ, so little time.

Edit: someone buy it for me and measure it up, please?

I wonder if there is a plastic tank :read cheaper: available that looks the same ? Has anyone tried a rmz250/450 stock tank ?

I have seen a YZ450 tank from one of the steel framed bikes on a DRZ with YZF shrouds. It looked really sweet and only required a few mods. Stock tanks are a lot cheaper than $900.

I wonder if someone has a picture of that YZ 450 setup, I bet you have to do a bit of welding etc. to make it fit. At least you need to work out some way to hook the front of the seat to the tank.

I don't fancy spending $900 on that little tank but it really improves the look of the book, even if it is a bit impractical.
