On the 650GS thumper, if you have a mounting plate for a luggage rack, you could easily adapt it to fit it. You just mount the Adv tank on it, and run the hose to the vent line of the stock tank.
Thanks.

I've also been looking at these to mount on the pillon and save the rack space for a top box.
1.5 gal., 6"x16", $189. Not as compact or off road worthy as your set up, though.

Very cool, shame it can't be used with a top case.

The supplied (and online) instructions are excellent.

The only thing I'm not crazy about is the venting hose that attaches to the filler cap. I had something identical on my KLR's plastic IMS tank, in the end I ended up removing it and mounting this vent doodad in the pic below.
Do youse see any reason I should keep a venting hose on the filler cap, that basically goes back under the seat and ties into the bike's venting hose that I disconnected from the tank. (My bike does not have the evap. canister).



My riding season begins this week. I will fill the ADV tank at the gas pump and snap a pic of its capacity. And then let the riding begin. I'll update this thread with my mileage range. I'm taking my GS to Colorado this summer for some touring and D-S exploration, so that's where the extra fuel will come in handy.

p.s. will post pics of the tank on the bike once the bike is back in the garage.
That is a lot like the way the XTank comes ...



Great minds really do think alike !

Well, today was my first day back on 2 wheels for this season.. I filled the adv tank. I put the bike on the center stand.. and filled it to the top of the filler cap. Do this only if you intend to ride enough distance to burn off 1 liter, otherwise when you park it on the side stand, it might leak from the filler cap.

I filled up at 4C, a total of 6.46 liters, or 1.7 US Gallons.

I'm going to start a new thread specific to the ADV tank to make finding this info easier, than digging thru this big thread.
