Large Plastic Tank For MT350

I'm looking for a large Tank for my MT350 to give more range, the standard tank takes 11l I'm looking for about 20l

appaerntly Honda XL 500 tanks and early XT600 tanks fit the bike, any one got one they wouldn't mind parting with??

I don't have an MT but I do have a CCM with the same Rotax engine. I also have a Honda XR600 with three tanks of varying sizes. None of the Honda tanks will fit the CCM - firstly because the gap in the middle of the tanks is too small for the CCM frame and secondly, even if you could get the tank on somehow, the top of the Rotax cambelt tower hits the bottom of the tank.


Maybe the MT frame is different and a Honda tank will go on but looking at the pictures of the LR tank on the Apophis site the gap between the sides is much larger than the Honda tanks. They've also got the front mounts molded so the tank will sit quite high up - possibly because of the cam tower. If you're going to go the Honda / Yamaha route I'd suggest try before you buy.

Yes, I saw that the original post was from a while ago but I did wonder whether the tank info might help anyone with an older Rotax CCM (or even the slightly newer Suzuki engined ones) wondering how to get a larger tank for the bike.

Unortunately Yes, as the next plan is a Long trip with the better half an MT is too tall for her. We have found a shorter bike that we are both happier with so we don't have to double up on parts to carry with us.

So the MT has gone (but to a very good home, where i know she'll be looked after) so I can afford my next travel bike.

yes of course I've seen your other posts now I remember.
I saw the bike at Cheddar as well. I was very impressed with it too. As well as ticking all the right boxes it still manages to look like a traditional Brit bike
