Anyone own both an EXC or similar and an XRR that could eyeball it? Some of the smaller Acerbis tanks with even the built in shrouds look pretty good by comparison.

I know it's absolutely NOT a functional mod and I'm fine with my dirt setup with my Clarke tank but a little sleeker street setup might stop me from adding a 5th bike to the garage

It's going to look older no matter what. Enjoy the look. It's unique on these bikes and I tend to like it.

I do not like the front fender though, but installing a CRF450 one fixed that.
