Acerbis 5.3g (20l) tank

Finally a tank with some range....

Dry fit of the new Acerbis 5.3g desert (or mountain) tank on my 350. I haven't seen any reports on this big tank, so wasn't sure how the new mold was going to work around the rad fan, but non-issue. All in all excellent fit and easy install. Waiting on a second FI pump to make swap between desert and enduro tanks quick and easy. This will also add a backup pump to my spare parts in case a pump goes south.

So far after 30hrs on the bike, I've averaged around 47mpg (20 k/l) on 50/50 mixed single track and roads, so this puts theoretical max range for this tank at about 250 miles.

Minor gap between tank and air box cover, and plastic on other side.

Ergo's are slightly fatter up on top

Excellent side impact protection for the rads

will need to remove tank to add coolant
