Gone

- light switch: the plug play sicass is a lot narrower than the stocker, more room on the bar, as a bonus you can turn off light

No switches on the XCF-W bars other than start and kill......you just pull up/push down the light toggle next to the computer to turn the lights on/off

+1 on the Acerbis 5.3, nice fit with good rad protection

Check -


Ben at Just Gas Tanks is a friend of mine.....good dude.....fireman trying to scratch out a living with a side job combining passion and profession....

I drove over to his store in Oceanside and picked up the Behemoth 5.3 gallon tank for the KTM 350XCF-W on Tuesday night....kinda big and fugly as all tanks are that are THAT big, but it weighs very little, is less than ~2 inches wider than the stock tank with shrouds, protects radiators from side impact, carries 3 gallons lower than stock tank carries 2.25 gallons for even better (lower) weight distribution, and obviously offers stooooopid range if I ever actually fill it up beyond ~3 gallons.....
Heading over to AZ tonight....I'll pop into the MVD in the morning and snag my street plate
