Hi Rustycager, its a Enduro tank bag.
See it HERE But I don't think I paid that for it.

Where you live is also a factor and since I'm in CA the street legal dirt bikes are worth more $$. The E models are dirt cheap and I see them go for around $2k

Thank you Outlaws.

Folks here in WV are kinda fond of their dual sports as you can plainly see. I'll keep looking. No rush, just in heat!

I'm the wrong guy to review them. I just got the bike and haven't been off road yet. I bought Wolf man Monarch Pass bags and love them and the way they lash to the racks. The reason I bought the Monarch Pass bags instead of the waterproof comes is for durability. I've had Ortlieb dry bags not last across years and with the bags I have I can swap out cheap dry bag stuff sacks all day long. I use Exped dry bags for about $9 per from Sierra Trading Post

I know my s will run very poorly when I broke a battery terminal, and is very hard to bump start, needs 15-20mph to start.
Nope..the S model will run all day long with NO battery at all! It just doesn't run real good at low speeds and is hard to start...hence the good suggestion to use some capacitors. The reason I know this is I had a battery fail (open circuit) on me on the trail. Fortunately I was at the top of a hill and got it started..

ok, thanks. I'm assuming the RR can handle dumping all that unused voltage with the battery too ?

Wolfman bag rack

I too have the Wolfman Expedition bag rack setup. Most of my low speed get offs have been with the bags on with some stuff in them. A few falls have been with bare rack being stuffed into the soft terrain. They have held up well. And served me well on my recent travels down the Utah Backcountry Discovery Route and up the Colorado Backcountry Discovery Route. My only complaint is that they don't align up well with the bag attachments so they have a sloppy pants look.

Clarke Tank

I have 2002 DRZ 400. Is the Clarke tank a good one to go with?

I'm buying the IMS. Actually returning the IMS for a smaller 3.2 gallon that allows the use of current radiator shrouds. The 4 gallon clear tank I have just purchased is just butt ugly big. A close freind went through hell with Clarke on a leaking tank. I will spend a few extra dollars for IMHO - a better tank - YMMV.

"Butt ugly big" yeah it might be but you won't say that when u need that extra drop of fuel when in the middle of nowhere. IMS 4 gal can fill up over 4.5 gal easy. Also it size is convenient to throw in good size saddle bags they come handy in long trip. Imho...

I have the butt ugly 4 gal Clark tank. The Clark tank allows for the radiator shrouds to be mounted on the tank. I have no problem with the tank or it's lack of beauty. It's a dirt bike IMHO.

This.

I've got the 3.9 Clark as well, just haven't installed it yet.

Lots of very positive reviews on it. One thing I do read is to get a better cap for it, but that's not hard to do.

Clarke tank

Just installed the 4 gal. Clark. Ugly but good fit and finish. Really like the natural color and being able to see fuel level. Cap seems fine, just don't over tighten it, does not leak when barely tightened.

The IMS 3.2 is a great tank, best aftermarket one IMO as far as looks, when i had one on my bike, it actually held 3.4 gallons +, i would get 170 miles then hit reserve, and out of fuel totally at 186+ miles, great range, and the tank fit like a glove.

I only get 185 miles to reserve on my Clarke 3.9.... must have some problem with my right wrist actuator.
