XR650R - Akrapovic and larger tank
 
I have the full Akro exhaust on a XR650R. I have just tried to fit an IMS 7gal but the tank is too close to the headers. Is anybody else using this pipe and what is the largest tank i can fit ? I am prepared to get another tank, as the pipe stays.

No problem with the Clarke 4.something gal and the full Akrapovic.
The Acerbis 6 gal should be fine?

For serious offroad riding I would not want anything bigger then the Clarke - they don't call it a pig for nothing.:lol3

My reasoning was 20 litres would weigh the same in the bigger tank, be carried lower and have the option of carrying more if needed.

The IMS tank sits lower than the Acerbis one.
