1999 Honda XR650l tank color question

I was browsing Ebay today and came upon this '99 xr650l on Ebay with a white tank. I have the same year, and mine came with a red tank. In '99, did Honda change to red tanks, or is this guy off on the year of his bike?

Correct, the tanks changed to red in 2000.

Then that's pretty strange that my '99 had a red tank and shrouds??? Apparently the orginal owner must have put a red tank and red shrouds on it, because that's the only thing that I can figure...

Sounds like yours was damaged and replaced with a newer model before you bought it. Are your fenders white?

Question 1993 XR650L tank replacement

This is an old post, I may not get a reply.
I have a 1993 XR650L with mostly White, some red, a little blue in it.
It runs great and I love it along with my BMW Adventure, I want for nothing-Happy guy here.
I want to upgrade the Honda. There is a crease in the gas tank that is starting to rust. Also, there is a sporatic gas leak in the line. I want to replace the whole thing from tank to Carb.
I go on sites to order a replacement tank and none of them carry a 1993 tank. They all say, "No Longer Avail."
Reading above, can I use a 1994 tank? 1997? 2002? 2013?
Are they all made to be interchangable?
I would 'Like' the red/white/blue scheme that originally came on the '93, but not all that necissary if a good tank is available.
Can anyone tell me what year tanks for this model can/cannot be used for a 1993 frame?
Thanks......

A tank from ANY year XR650l will fit your bike. I have a white 1995 tank on the shelf I wouldn't mine selling. Let me know.
