Reliable is an understatement, really good will-not-stop technology.
This very probably is the Landrover Defender of motorbikes.

Ive got a 1990-1995 English XT600 factory manual on pdf if anybody needs it.

Thanks but looks like getting a new cilinder sleeve will be cheaper since the piston looks good.The whole top-end job cost twice what I payed for the whole bike

In the USA you can get Acerbis tanks for the XT600 (both electric and kick start) at JustGasTanks (www.justgastanks.com).

Im not wanting one that bad. That just seems crazy expensive for what is essentially a plastic jug.

I tend to agree - which is why I still have my OEM steel tank (pinhole patches from the stupid slanted side design and all). Info provided to those who prefer to farkle rather than pennytech.
