Ah, they say that can happen - it's worth thread-locking that bolt on, and likewise the bolts that hold the right hand (removable) footpeg on...

Have you seen the Pig Pen website? - there is lots of good info on there:

Enjoy your pig!

Sweeeet! How do you find the Acerbis tank to ride with? Was it easy to put on? What type of saddlebag/pannier rack is that?


STUC. I'll get a pic today for you. Sorry just tried. Camera can't zoom in enough. Bolt has thread 14mm long and seems to be 7mm wide. Mine was loose too so now has some Locktite on it. The rear rack (Ballards) can be tricky to work around when you are taking the side plastic off for a filter clean. I just twist and pry and it comes off. Harder to put back on though.

KASUYAHO. Thanks mate. What should I do too the clutch basket. You have me worried. Future mods include an supertanker from Acerbis from the US (On the way as we speak). Some type of screen or even a rally style fairing ($$$$$$$). Depends what I can get away with!!

The rack and tank was on it when I picked it up - it's been modified.

The tank is fine - I'll keep the fuel low if it's a rougher ride, but the 6+ gallons (whatever it is) is nice to have sometimes.

It's one hell of a well built rig - just bought it a few months ago:

Barnums Pro revalved fork & shocks .48/10.5 springs
Scotts underbar damper & clamp
ProTaper Pastrana bars
Baja Designs 55/60 headlight/led tail light
inboard led turnsignals
rewound OE stator ~200 watt single output
Acerbis Sahara tank
Edelbrock carb/19E needle
HRC manifold
modified airbox/cover
FMF full exhaust
Fluidyne radiators
home-built tank braces (Acerbis didn't have 'em back then...)
HD clutch springs
15/48 Ironman sprockets/Regina chain
Talon hubs/Excel rims/SS Bulldog spokes
XR's only speedo drive eliminator
Promoto billet rack (modified)
Dirtbag hoops (modified)
homebrewed stator vent
Utah Sports skidplate
Motion Pro clutch cable
*very* well worn Enduro Engineering handguards
XR's Only CS sprocket guard
Fastway rear disk guard
Braking wave rear rotor
IMS pegs
Modified IMS shifter
homebrewed footpeg bolt solution
fork brace
EBC 280mm front brake rotor
braided stainless lines
Suzuki Swift thermostat
propylene glycol a/f
Renazco suede seat

Need HELP fitting Acerbis supertanker

Hi All,
I'm just trying to fit the supertanker to the BRP but things aren't going to plan. At all.

1st- What "O" rings do I fit to the petcocks? it's come s with 2X black, 2X green and 1X fatter black one.

2nd- Where do I put the half donut rubber cradle and zip tie?

3rd. when I put the supplied lower mounting braket on under the rads' on the frame it doesn't leave me with much thread to screw them on. Is this OK?

4th- Im trying to get the two rubber bushed mounting brakets out from the old tank to transfer across but it appears the brass "nut" which is embedded into the tank is spining as well. Any suggestions to get these out.

Talk about shithouse instructions

1, i can not remember what o rings i used on the pet cocks.

2, half rubber cradle and zip tie, yeh its weird those bits, let me know if you find out where they go besides the bin

3, Those brackets are a bit flimsy i think, and on my bike the bolts were not long enough and what a drama to change the now too short bolt.
So what i need was mount the tank of the radiators, oops, wrong move as it split a radiator, so now it going to be make a bracket for the tank off the
main frame, which i have not worked out as yet


4, If it was me i would go and buy some new brackets and leave those old ones in the tank, i would not have a clue how to stop the brass nuts from spinning in the tank.

Ya not wrong there shithouse instructions for sure.

One thing i found was with this tank with 18L of fuel in it,
it handled better than when the 18L clark tank was on the bike.
Fuel lower i suppose.

What happens is the brush that is in the clutch basket seizes to the main input shaft of the gear.
Basically the bike will move off when sitting there in gear with the clutch lever in.

The good side is it is rare it happens.

The bad side is if it does happen then the input shaft gailed and to repair that is, head off, barrel off and split the cases and then repair the shaft.
major headache.

Appartently the brush is around 20 bucks US.
The difference in the bushes is the new one has a hole drilled in it about 3mm just to let a bit of oil lube this area.
Otherwise the bushes are exactly the same.

If it was me i would do it has its an easy fix and peace of mind.

Rally screen i just got it make myself, cost was 30 bucks.
I just copied the 650R safari bikes screens.
