Go Back to ADV...re find the Pic of the bike with said fuel carrier..... then either PM the poster asking them about Fuel carrier OR hit the "quote" button and ask the question Publicly and someone else may respond.

Thats what I usually do.

Mainly they are a friendly bunch!

You didn't mention what KTM you had?

David Lambeth has fitted a set of rear KTM rally tanks to my 2000 640 Adventure. There are a number of posts on the KTM tech section over the last two years on this topic which describe what sort of rally tanks can be fitted, as the tank design has slightly changed over the last 10 years.

Overland Solutions can also fabricate tanks to fit a 640 Adv. Again there are several posts on this topic previously or you can check their website.

Both Acerbis and Baja Designs also sell rear tanks that may be suitable, depending on the type of bike.

cheers

might check tourtank.com. we bought our 4.5usgal aux tank from them but because we have a scooter just put it under the seat and ran the line to the tank which is only 16 inches away. when we need the extra fuel just pop open the seat and fill it along with the 4 gal regular tank. that gives us about 450 miles. the sell all the connections and different size tanks so they might sell racks.
