I'm not happy with the capacity of the stock fuel tank on the XR650L, I've read bad reviews on nearly all the aftermarket large capacity fuel tanks, It all makes me want to throw my hands in the air and give up, I can't afford to buy several of those tanks until I find a good one, Can you guys help a fella out? 4 gallon capacity would be nice! not interested in the biggest tank ever! Thanks in advance!
Looking at longer rides where 2.5 won't reach to the next gas station. I've got the stock tank on my 2004 and don't want to switch out with an Acerbis 3.2 because I want to be able to keep the bike light for shorter rides, so I'm looking at external options like the rotopax, maybe a 2 gallon-er? Are the 2 gallons too big, or are there other options I don't know about? Thanks in advance.
Hey Guys/Gals, Newbie here and currently have a bike project that I'm working on to keep me busy during the "lockdown". Anyhow, just wanted to know what ya'll done with the stock vacuum tube that comes from the Mikuni carb to the factory stock gas petcock after installing an upgraded Acerbis fuel tank that comes with its own petcock mechanism that has no vacuum tube insert port on it. I understand the vacuum is used for allowing fuel to flow from tank to carb. On the other hand, the Acerbis uses gravity it seems. What I would like to know if this vacuum port is crucial to the carb's performance/functionality or can it just be left d/c with the new fuel tank in place? Thanks in advance! Cheers!
