Wink Ebay

I suggest that you search on German Ebay (and Europe generally) - there are far more there than appear for sale in the UK.

I got one from Germany, but it did not fit my bike - that's a whole different story!!!

Postage costs from Germany are very reasonable BTW; there, that's my secret out - now the prices will rise!

Acerbis 23 L fuel tank for XT 600 for sale.


After finishing my Australia / S. America trip on my XT, I am selling my Acerbis 23 L tank. It's black color, double petcock, and it's in Colombia.
23 litres was always enough for me, and I did get off the beaten path, big time. I was getting 400-450K on a full tank, on an XT 600 year 2000.

As a test, I ran the bike until the tank was dry. I got 500 km (310 miles) out of it, on the dot.

It's got a few scratches on it. It's working great and I sell it for half of what it’s worth new, plus shipping to wherever you live.



Life is good!

Price, shipping

If Rider doesn't get it, I'm also interested in it. What's the price? And where can we check for shipping prices?
