Question XT600E '94 tank

Hey Guy's,

been looking for a long range tank for my '94 xt600E but can't seem to come up with one.

I had a bit of a look on the acerbis site and it seems that the tanks genrally fit a couple of different year model's and for the xt go from 90-94 then a different model tank for 95-97 or whatever.

anyway my question is, how much difference is there between the '94 xt600E and the '95? surely they can't have changed that much, but I don't wanna fork out the $600 unless I know it's gonna fit.

Also what are the chance's of a TT tank fitting? I know they used to have the airbox and whatnot under the tank, is this still the case on the newer TT's, like '95 on???

Both tanks are totally different. Acerbis do a 20litre for the -94 and a 23litre for the 95-03.

90-94 and 95-> are different, but a 95-> model can be used for a 90-94 bike if you change also seatpost, sides and tail.
