    KLX 650 Oversize Fuel Tank?

    This is is IMS not Acerbis. This thing is only 3.5 gallon which is not much more than the standard. It uses the standard shrouds, normally the shroud space is where Acerbis added more continence. Also this tank uses the standard tank’s petcock. Acerbis uses its own petcock.

    KLX 650 Oversize Fuel Tank?

    ims never made tanks for this specific model. So i have no idea what they are talking about ....send link and we see. The C model tank is the one you see above in pictures. Has depressions/cavities for turn signals BECAUSE the C model has turn signals BECAUSE it street legal from factory. The R model tank looks similar and green but doesnt have the cavities cause the R model is not street legal and comes without turn signals. The C model bike has a slightly longer frame and longer swing arm for street/highway speed stability. R model has more compact frame and shorter swing arm. Why should we care? because the R model tank can be installed on the C model bike but it will have a little bit of empty space between tank and the seat. Some have also changed the seats (maybe even the side plastics but not sure) See pics here of people who did it, notice the little space

    dude just sell it to someone looking to buy a bike and buy the one you want your bike is an excellent deal for someone who wants a recent bike but not brand new dealers will always low ball you, they need to get bikes off of their hands not get more bikes, so they d only take a bike in if it is at a ridiculously low price... like if i’m trying to get you to buy something from me that you have no interest in having, i’d have to motivate you somehow

    Yes, but it will be pricy just so you know, depending on where you are, with shipping etc you are looking at about $5oo

    RTW Trip underway, here are issues I had crossing US

    Great posts. Great reviews. I’m glad you agee with me that pvc frog togs is the solution not some super-hyped-tech jacket $5 pvc suit folded in luggage and buy whatever jacket u like without consideration to whether it s waterproof. Tell us about the air canada deal please. I tried to figure out on their website - not easy... thanks!
  11. That’s good to know thanks!
  12. I see your reply and TorchSport ‘s reply gives me pause. The fact that you have the beefiest hitch is not going to fix car frame issues. Because you loose steering traction in the front and also you get braking issues. On the crv i sold, it felt unstable. I was hoping someone would have some good news for me because i like the idea of the carrier just because it’s so easy and practical.
  13. Yes, draw-tite is 350 lbs, the issue is not Draw-Tite, the issue is that Honda Element (as stated above by Tahoe Gator) has CRV frame. Which only has a max tongue weight capacity of 150 Lbs or so... It is no good that the hitch receiver is 350 lbs
  14. Yes agreed. Very obscure area. Based on readings i did of various state laws, it is not ok. But i see them around all the time. Harbor freight usually has a set of magnet lights intended for use when towing a car. They are always on sale for $9.99. Otherwise some Versa-Haul carriers come with lights built-in.
  15. Thanks man! Not feeling reassured at the moment That makes me worry even more. Cause if your 4Runner has 500Lbs and you felt like you lost some stability, how would it be for somoene with a crv that has much less tongue weight capacity? My gut feel is the carrier thing is fine for a dirtbike (not dualsport). Always wonder when i see dual-carriers that are supposed to carry two bikes....*_* another tip: you always see them on sale on craigslist with a description along these lines: “only used it once” “only used to briefly transport bike home” etc. Feels like people think it is a viable option but change their mind after a use or two i still like carriers, i have an aluminum one for my dirt bikes but i also have a trailer for dual sport and other bikes
