Mine stock pump hit the little Mikuni vacuum pump so it sat angled so much I couldn't get the screws to start but if I leaned on it a bit it was quite close but then of course I didn't want to have to do that so....

Our Fix was to remove the Mikuni pump, cover all it's pipes with tape to stop metal fillings getting in and cut the top un-used mounting bracket off it.
I also filed a rounded edge on the pump for extra clearance.
Re-install the Mikuni pump and now my pump fits perfectly, no more rubbing, screws go straight in by hand. yay !

So anyone else having this problem could have a look and see if doing that might give you enough clearance to make it work for you too.
Having no idea how bad your issue was I guess it is possible that this may not be enough for your tanks, but though I'd post as I found this thread while searching to see if anyone else had posted of the problem.

Cheers

Thank you for this info!

We have 8-10 perfect WR250R shells(minus the pump area molded a bit deep) here at the shop! Contact us if you are interested. We will make you a deal.

These do not come with any mikuni pump but we do sell these.

The only way would be to try one on here. I would assume you could get a XT600 or 650L on there. Something that would not take any air scoops/shrouds.

Does anyone know if the stock vacuum petcock on a DR650 tank will work on the 5.3 gallon Acerbis tank?

I do not believe it will as these have a one hole petcock mount. Not 100% sure though...

I see the 5.8 XR600R tank is back in stock in White. Any chance of selling me a red 5.8 XR650L with the XR600R mounting hardware? Please let me know.

TW200 mystery tank

Hey,

Any chance you guys can ID the tank and shroud on this TW200? Pretty sure they were adapted for the TW, not built specifically for it.

We do not know what this is off of...

It almost looks like the shrouds off of a chinese brand bike that I have seen running around.

We are hoping to get them sent to us before our next shipment comes. Worse case it will be 6-8 weeks.

Thanks

What about either OE replica or Azzalin tanks for the Elefant? Both were originally manufactured by Acerbis. Think they still have a mold around somewhere?
