Does anybody know of any other place to get one in case these guys are sold out? Does anybody sell them for less? Does anybody here have one they are looking to sell??



I had the same thought, the acerbis tank is sweet. Unfortunately my dr is on a farckles restricted diet this winter. Although I did just do my clutch today and a lightly used pumper carb is on it's way.
I said diet not starvation

I pulled the old clutch plates/springs and installed new ones. The old ones looked good(with 22000 km's on the bike) and probably would have been fne for another 10'000 k's. While I had it apart I milled .005" off the back of the clutch basket hoping to cure the hard to find nuetral problem I have.
Here are some pics just cause I'm bored.

Picked up my 350 SEV today & rode it 30 miles home.

1st impressions:

The motor's OK pulls fine up to 70mph, it's an unfamiliar bike & my bro was following so I didn't risk going past 70.
Front brake squeels when cold.
Difficult to get into neutral.

I like my bikes to be 'sorted' so it's going to take a few weekends to get this to a standard I'm happy with.

Any tips for a new owner?

Frame & some bits have rusted. The stand was very tight to fold down, a quick squirt of oil was all it needed.


I may replace the chain & sprockets.




Watch this space, I'll be back with updates.

They have the Clark 4.2,which is a great tank for $189!
From what I've read, I was leaning towards the Acerbis because it has (I think) 2 petc*cks so you don't have to lean and shake to get all of the fuel. How does the Clark tank compare?

I've got the Clarke tank and will be putting it on soon. I am somewhat bemused by the design because it looks like much of the capacity may be below the level of the petcock. I'm wondering how much capacity is really added.

Well,i run a IMS on my DR650,and have that problem once in a great while.So i just plant a foot,and pop the clutch do a good old MX turn and i get the gas to the petcock!!

Its very rare that i get that far with over 200 miles range,and to me it isn't that big of a deal to lean it over if i get caught short.
Trust me 200 or over on any DR is time to get off and strech anyway.

Extended shifter

Has anybody sourced an extended shifter for the DR for big footed dudes?

The acerbis tank is also a rather different shape from the others. Its quite thin between the knees, dips down lower then flares out in front of the knee pockets. Makes for a more comfortable and slimm feeling bike imho. The forward flare also tends to help keep wind from pulling your legs out for extended high speed rides.

Ebay rack

I bought mine last year with the Ebay rack on it. That rack is pretty sturdy. Attached a piece of painted plywood to the rack last summer for a couple of trips. Works great.

no platform
