950's right tank on a 990?

Guys,

Can I fit a 2005 950 right gas tank on my 990 2008? I am preatty sure I can't do it on the left side though.

Thanks

Nic

Yes, the right 950 tank will fit on a 990. The 950 ADV left would work too, however would need to fit a external high pressure pump and filter system

You will have to decide what you are going to do with the upper balancing hose between the two tanks. The 950 has no nipple at that point. I suggest you cancel it on your left tank as well.
Cheers.

Or get the ktm mod that drills the tank.

I would not though. I hate that line there. has no use if the normal vents are open.

Note that the 950 tank does not have the tank guard indent of the 990 tank and is missing the rear mount point for the tank guard. So, it'll go on, but the two sides of the bike will look a little different. You can make the 990 tank guards fit the 950, but it does take a little work.

Is this a difficult, dodgy and expensive job?

Grazie

Can you explain this better to me.

I use to have a 950 and I took tanks down in a number of occasion but I can't remember any pipe difference among 950 and 990.

I am sure you are right. Please let me know. Pics would be great if you have any.

Many thanks

Nic

Thanks for the advice.
I am not planning to use protections so it should be ok, isn't it?

Difficult,dodgy, or expensive is relative... figure about $400 in parts, then fabricate a mount system, route/connect hoses and electrical. I would say that if you are or you know someone who is up to the task technically, the go for it, otherwise i suggest staying with a 990 left tank and pump assembly

He is referring to this I think.

On the 950's they drilled the tanks and installed a worthless assembly that is prone to failure. The 990's have the threaded bushings as part of the tank and seal OK.
