I am already having to change my summer trip plans because I need the extended range for my planned trip.
Can you take your trip and make do with a Dromedary bag? Is it every tank of fuel on your trip or just a few sections that need range? If it's just once in a while a Dromedary will work fine.

Here's 38 litres on an SE. 30 in the Safari tank and 8 in the fuel bladder

Is it true that the alignment of the nuts will be off abit after installing the tank due to heat & tank expansion? Cause a friend of mine has difficulty installing it back after it has been taken out

Yeah if you take them off and let them sit for a few hours they change shape a bit and they're a PITA to get back on.

Santa Came.... finally!

Okay, I've been patiently waiting to contribute to this thread after ordering my tanks in February of this year... Nearly 11 months later I can at least say they're finally here!



I plan on installing them this coming weekend. Anyone have the part number for the non-locking Acerbis gas caps that'll fit these tanks?

Dang... you are patient, thats about when i ordered mine. You can use the caps without using the locks. It sure is nice going for a ride for the whole day and not have to think about fuel. I haven't had mine off yet but they sure went on easy... I went for the trim of the cross over plate instead of the washer to give the petcocks clearance. Also check the hole for the fuel pump, mine had some imperfections. You will want to check the alingment of the inserts for the FP, I had to enlarge the holes in the FP body. Oh and flush them well!







1st shot with my new tanks...

CONGRATS! I know it's been a LONG wait! My head would have exploded by now if I'd have had to wait that long for mine (ask Geek! ). IMO, don't bother with non-locking caps... these don't lock automatically, so can be left un-locked and are super-easy to get off at your soon-to-be infrequent refuelings.

I'm sittin at 8.1 if I include my rotopax. And another 12oz if I include my msr stove.

But the 10k in add ons is a most definite. . Check all my threads and my divorce papers. Jk.

And I hear the 2wd pigs are slow. Just a rumor.

Why is it that no one seems to be running both safari tanks and crashbars? Doesn't fit?

Unbelievably jealous of a 10G setup

...but I will never be able to justify that price. I know it has all been said before, and I understand there are huge development costs to recoup, but I would at least expect better than 11month delivery time, no manufacturing trash inside and perfect fit of tanks and fuel pump.
Every time I have to fill up 3 times in one day though....
