question for Nave

For what bike is the acerbis tank you have used Nave and what did you have to do to make it fit?
I am going your way to shed some weight.

hey!
i'm using a DR650 acerbis tank. you don't need to do enything, it fits perfect.
the only thing you will need to build is a part to fill the gap between the seat and the tank that original is cover by the side tank panels.

by taking off the tank covers you will save about 10kg!!!

newbie

Hello!
I am a proud owner of 1990 DR800 for three years now - It has the looks of 750 (thats a pro) and a heart of 800 CC's (thats a pro also).

So my interest in this post is to mark Estonia as a country that has doctors on it's soil.

I have a friend driving a bike almost like mine - I shall lure him to join also.

Kind regards to all!
Morse

25 liters. It is the one that fits the later dr650 models. Therefore, i concure that other brands will fit too, like the IMS.

http://www.justgastanks.com/store/in...cPath=1_69_172

these apply, as i undesrstand only to the later 800 model (SR43)

i have the 25 litter acerbis tank (215.99$...). as new- it comes with an adapter to the frame insted of the 2 rubber at the front.
if u buy a used one- make sure you get it.

Hello Big-ers!

I am having a great time reading this topic. I own a 750 for a while and the pleasure of riding it i haven't found on any other bike.

I've used it as a partner for adventures


and a partner in enduro races where most of the guys ridden exc-s.



Now my bike is in the garrage for a big conversion to supermoto, loosing some weight and few extra power. I will present you the final result of a lot of work i have in mind.
Regards from Romania,
Aky

regarding power....I wonder whether the 600+ euros a mikuni pumper costs, constitutes a significant upgrade in comparison to a properly jetted +exhaust +filter setup. Anybody knows?

carbs will not bring hp increase, they will only improve responsiveness dramatically, but at costs of sensitivity to conditions and sometimes to aggressive fueling (here goes economy and soft control).
So those 2 things do not exclude each other, because jetting, pipes, filters will get you some more ponies soft way, then add pumper carbs and it will make you feel every pony you added to stable like RIGHT NOW.
I find it too dangerous for my low level of offroad skill but not really that convincing on pavement - it still be same lump and it feels.

from my experience when the carb is well adjusted the problem with sensitivity and soft controls do not exist.
you need some time to adjust to the new way the engine response, especially when riding off raod.
the pony will not be stronger but will run faster................................
