Does the 800GSA tank fit on a 700GS?

I'd like a little more range and that beautiful CamelTank won't fit with my Varios.

you'll need a new rear frame and some other mods. Short answer is no. Long answer is you could do it but it'll at least cost you 3k to do so. We have talked about this when the GSA came out, can't remember the thread but some usefull stuff has been said there. Cheaper solution would to carry rotopax with you (I know it's not the same but other than that you'll need to wait for a cameltank 3. something. SImplest would be to change your luggage or upgrade to a 800GS(A) if you are tall enough

May as well go with the Camel Tank, the Varios wouldn't fit with the GSA tank either. You'd still be looking for different cases, and the tank would be a lot more $$$$.

What they said!

If you had more range, you'd travel more off road, and you'd dump it more and then you'd need more varios. There's a big demand for used varios so consider your options and what you want to do. A Roto or TT bottle is cheapest.
