CategoryLast UpdatedReviewIf you own an XR650L, this tank is a requirement. Stock tank gets typically 80 miles without reserve. With this 5.9gl my typical mileage is 220 before I need to fill up, also without reserve. It feels great between the knees both sitting and standing. The only time it gets in the way is if your really going to lean the bike into the turn, the tank is wide further forward, so the natural leg out and forward to setup for the turn is not quite as comfortable. I find my leg out to far, kinda stretching my inseam. However, that is not at all a reason to not use this tank. Every time I get on the bike, I remember how important that tank has been saving me on longer than expected trips, along with being used as the "tanker" bike if a riding buddy needs a splash of fuel to get back home.
CategoryLast UpdatedReviewI was pretty disappointed with the life of the tire about 1700miles. It practically melted away on the pavement, along with noticeable wear after a day on the rocks. However, when the tire was new it worked very well in the sand. So if your primary terrain is sand, then it will probably work well. But for the price to life ratio, I'm looking for a different tire once the stock tires I remounted wear out.
