Yeah, looks like I"m going to have to change out my stocker bars. I'm not sure how difficult this will be with mounting the throttle etc. but looks like I have no choice if I want to mount good handguards with the protection for the levers. I was checking out CycleGear yesterday to get some ideas. Sucks about the XT sealed ends on the bars though.

I have been checking Ebay for an Acerbis tank and they are either not available or they are too expensive elsewhere online.

Has anyone mounted a Clarke gastank successfully? I found an aftermarket tank for around $180 in Oregon (new) but it fits the same year TT600. I'm wondering if it would fit my '93 XT. Anyone have any experience with Clarkes?
