Question Wanted: 40L fuel tank for Honda XR650L


Im looking for a new or used tank that will fit my 1998 Honda XR650L.
The tank needs to be larger than my current tank which is the acerbis 24l.

I dont want to buy the 40l African Queens tank for the xr650r it costs $5000NZD.

If you have have any tanks for sale, or know where to source a new tank please reply to this thread or send me a personal message.

There are Nomad rear tanks here in Aus, only 8litre but hang over the rear end of the bike, and or some crew have added/mounted the acerbix yamaha side guard/cover rear tanks (dakar style) not sure the lt's but work in well with many bikes, or try the link below (non english but cool pics) cheers al

Fuel Tanks! Phew

Hi there,
I also own a XR 650L. Mine only has the stock 10lt tank that will get you round the block about 2 and a half times. If you manage to sorce a 40 lt tank I would be keen to buy your old tank of you. It would get me started and offset some of the cost of your new one.
Good luck.

Hi Steve,

My bike is in Queensland Australia. I have been looking for a 40l tank for a while now, they are very difficult to source. I want some more fuel up front so I don't have to carry so much in my rear panniers. If I do manage to get a 40l tank Ill get back to you regarding my acerbis tank. I'm not sure how long that will take.


PS thanks endurotour I'm looking into those options you've mentioned.

Have a look at www.safaritanks.com
I saw their add in an Aussie mag and they appear to be well respected.
Good luck
