It appears that's what most (I've seen) have them listed. I'm wondering if there is a better deal out there, or coupon. You can buy them directly from Acerbis for $269.95

Just gas tanks is the same price, but they give a ADV discount of 5 % and they ship for free. On eBay the other day white only was listed at $224 including shipping. I am looking for a good price for a natural one myself.

Today my new Acerbis 5.3 tank came in the mail so I jumped on installing it. I ran in to a problem though. It looks like the stock fuel tank has an additional fuel line? Is this a vent or something? Can I just cap it, or do I need to return the tank?

It's attached on the right-rear side of the tank



And leads to something on the left hand side



I'm guessing this is a California thing. I can't seem to find other forums acknowledging this line.

Any insight would be much appreciated! Thanks!

If you look at the instructions for an IMS tank they talk about extending that hose and hooking it to the fill cap. Look at this link and click on "User Manual/Instruction Sheets."

For prices it's easy to do a google search.

Rocky Mountain - $245 with free shipping

Just Gas Tanks - $270 - 5% = $256.49 with free shipping

Pro Cycle and everyone else $270 (or $269.xx), some with free shipping, some you pay for shipping.

Pro Cycle lists them under "Body & Frame" instead of "Fuel System" where they have petcocks, carbs, fuel filters, etc. They do have a great customer service reputation and are helpful here on this forum, posting quite a bit.

Thanks for doing the research on this! I have been wanting one of these, but was going to wait a little while before pulling the trigger on one. I couldn't pass it up at this price, though! Order placed!

here in oz

The best price I found and purchased at was $349.00 AUS for 20 litre Acerbis

That's about $327.00 US for 5.3 gallon Acerbis.

Needless to say, it's obvious why so many of us Aussies buy stuff in bulk (to make shipping worthwhile) from the States.

I do like it (the tank) though.



Looks good eh?
