If 12 liters is enough for you, you should be able to find a used 690 tank a lot cheaper than you can buy a 450 Rally tank. Then you can also tuck in the muffler so it is not as prone to damage as when mounted lower. I think a friend of mine has one, if you want I can ask.
OK
But if you look at the draws in the KTM catalogs, the 450's tank looks very different from the 690's one. The shapes are quiet no the same...
But the idea is good anyway as 12 liters could be enough...

Yes please ask your friend how much he would sell it (as the exact reference) and what accessories are included.

Thx
