Not sure how wide the Pax is mines 4.5" . Its nice to have the extra fuel but of course the penalty is more weight on the tail.
TNX,

The Rotopax is (
9 1/2 L x 13 1/4 W x 3 H) so the extra 1/2 gal is what you get with the Koplin. I have the 2 gal rotopax for my KTM 990, but debating the extra cost of the can mount and can (koplin or rotopax) for the WRR as apposed to doing like some of the Aussies do and getting a 3-4 L fuel bladder you can roll up and hide away when you don't need it and lash it down filled when going up North (you know up your way).
