I know that Neduro was selling his. It may be sold by now.

I guess what I'm trying to find out, doe's the Safari tank push your knee way out from the KTM or is as narrow as the stocker tank? Anyone that has this tank, please shout out on your feelings (likes and dislikes) later Headbeater

Big tank

I 've had one on my SE for a while now. I like it a lot. Does not seem any wider than stock. I stuffed it with fuel cell foam to keep the sloshing effect down ( was very noticeable on tight up down twisty trails ) For the most part I only put five gal in at a time.

If it's any wider, it's not enough for me to notice it.

Renazco. I rarely say this about any product: It's even better than I expected. Now I know why people rave about them.

Giant loop fandango.

I think the KTM bag works too if you can find one.

Best thing invented.

I have been running the Safari tank for a couple of years now and have no complaints. It isn't noticably wider unless you really move up over the bars. Which isn't really a problem, but it is noticable. I already had the KTM tank bag that would no longer fit as the strap that went under the frame was to short, so I went and had the local dry cleaner (luckily they do alterations) replace the strap with some 1" nylon belting that I got off a tie down. Worked great. The tank more than doubles the capacity of the stock tank and carries the fuel low so even that wasn't to noticable. Definately one of the best things I've done.

Not fitting correctly

My safari tank for the super enduro is not going on too well, seems like the tank bolts are all aligning up. Any one else have these problem?

I love my Safari. It does not give a wide feel and I use a Wolfman Enduro tank bag. Fits great with no access problems to the fuel cap.

The bracket is soft -- just bend to fit.
