I contacted Acerbis to see if they had any plans at all for a gas tank, and this is their reply :cry

Sorry we do not have plans to make the CRF250L fuel tank in the future.
Hopefully IMS or Clarke will step up...

Edit - From IMS:
Quote:

We are in the beginning stages of producing a tank for this bike. I do not yet have any information on size or other specs as it is a bit early, but we are likely to see something finished around the end of the year.
:clap

Thanks for starting the new thread, Joe. :D

I'm confident Clarke will soon produce a larger fuel tank for the CRF250L. :nod

Thanks joe. Hopefully this will be a troll free post zone haha.

I posted a question on the old thread so I'll repost:

I go overseas all the time for work. If anyone is good at researching and doing some legwork, id be happy to go over and bring back some exhaust cans and rear racks. I know guys in Europe and Asia have had the bike longer and they already have some parts available. Just a thought.

Also I talked to fmf today about another bike and asked again about our pipe for this bike. The engineer said mid November was a safe guess. Group buy?

In.

While I'd really like a bigger tank I actually like the steel tank. I can throw my old Nelson-Rigg magnetic bag on it and it sticks even when it shouldn't offroad. I won't be able to do that with a plastic tank.

Instead I'd like a Rotopax capable rear rack. Something with the option to include some panniers/side bag supports.

On road, and it really is to early to tell, I'm getting about 175km to a tank, off road, and this is the amazing part, about 150 -160. Adding an extra gallon to that will get me down the road an extra 100km+

My fuelly account for my CRFL: http://www.fuelly.com/driver/bungie/crf250l

The annual season wind down is nearing. Maybe I'll get energetic and build my own.

I still won't need to worry about the suspension. :wink:

I bought my bike in Orem, UT and took it directly to Ricochet in SLC. They said they would get a bike and get working on a skid plate. Maybe by the EOY.

Has anyone contacted IMS? Then tend to go even larger than Clarke for western riders. http://www.imsproducts.com/Contact/

I'm sure both Richochet http://www.utahsportcycle.com/ & Flatland would like to measure up some bikes http://www.flatlandracing.com/

As well as Seat Concepts http://www.seatconcepts.com/

Plus PBI racks http://www.promotobillet.com/catalog/index.php?cPath=24
And Manracks http://www.manracks.com/

If you guys want the aftermarket to produce, don't wait but rather contact them and offer up your bike. You'll get one for free from the deal.

Seat Concepts is already on it. I offered up my seat, but he said he'd just get one himself. I offered up my bike to IMS, but never heard back. I'm sure they can source one locally.

Yes, I contacted IMS, see above.

eakins 09-04-2012 02:04 PM

nice. sounds like there will be aftermarket coming in soon.
having a 4+ gallon tank, comfy seat and beefy skid plate is essential for western touring and day riding.

anyone contacted Wolfman or Berg to get the process started on side racks?
http://www.wolfmanluggage.com/
http://brmoto.com/

Wolfman might also be interested in doing one of their rear racks too.

Obviously Giant Loop Coyote bag will fit on the bike as is
http://www.giantloopmoto.com/products/coyote-saddlebag

I'm sure Happy Trails also would like a bike in for various products

If any CRF250L owners reside in Southern California, you should definitely contact Mike at ManRacks. :deal

http://www.manracks.com/master#!__master/suzuki-dr650

Mike makes very nice luggage racks for a variety of Honda, and other motorcycles. I have owned several of Mike's luggage racks, and several of the other products he manufactures. Mike encourages feedback from his customers, and constantly works to refine his products. After a new luggage rack is fabricated, Mike frequently sends out free prototype rakcs for testing, and feedback. :nod Mike has also refined a RotoPax mounting plate for the XR650L luggage racks, so I'm sure he can quickly modify this mounting plate for a CRF250L luggage rack. :D
