Serious chunk of coin spent on this and probably one of the best looking XRR's Ive seen

Worth a look
be interesting to see what the reserve is.

Would have to be worth big dollars with that build kit and condition.

Anyone know the size of this tank?

no where in particular. the point is, where cant i go with my new mods

guess i just like messin around
the biggest problem the xr has ( i reckon) is it luggage capacity. the biggest luggage capacity problem is fuel storage.alleviate the fuel storage problem and hopefully the lugage problem. when dougal and i went to the simpson earlier this year i had the safari tank and 2 x12l bladders strapped to my tank. the bike handled excellent with this load. when dougs bladder shit itself and i carried 1 x 10l jerry on the back, the bike was all over the shop, you can feel the sub frame bending and twisting. just waiting for the snap. with this tank the weight is central on the bike and is carried low. the ergos are better than the 25l safari tank. it is thinner where your knees go. the supports are stronger. apart from the minor issues iam having with the pipe location at the momnet i reckon its going to be very practical and usable.

Thats the acerbis 26lt,they are not a very well fitting tank,and very wide up top.I got a xr with that tank and the underseat 14lt acerbis combo,i have ridden a xr with the aqualine safari tank and it fits the bike better,acerbis made a stuff up on these tanks.

It was because of you i was asking. I wanted to see what type of mounting system was used to see what could be done to make it workable, or are you getting rid of the xr in favour of something else.
