8 Litre tank for LC4 640 E

Hi Guys,I just wondered if you had a samll tank for an LC4 as you all seem to be fitting big tanks for overland journeys. I have a standard tank 11 litres (I think) but wanted something smaller for UK rallies.

Any help or ideas would be appreciated, even if you don't have a tank for sale.

Cheers

I understand the 625 SXC has a tank with 9 about litres capacity.

However, you may need a different seat if you fit one.

I guess the SXC tank may be slimmer and lighter, but will you notice the difference?

As Ian has pointed out SXC is a 8l tank and uses the same seat as 11l tank.

3 Kilo's lighter.
