Glenn,

Correct, you can reuse the original though with no issues as well.

Just asking because the subject was brought up in another thread and I have heard in the past that plastic tanks were not (technically) legal for street use. I am sure they have developed a plastic that is "safe" now and I am assuming if the OEM are fitting them then they are legal.

they are NOT metal. they're plastic. have been plastic since the XR250R. ffs...special fuel safe plastic.

Toolkit as supplied with Aust bikes.

24mm, 19mm, 15mm, 12mm, 10mm, double ended screwdriver, fuse puller, universal jointed sparkplug socket, plus an extra sparkplug socket.



the air filter snorkel.



Air Filter snorkel removed. (its rubber, it just pulls out)



the front of the Air Filter



Back of the air filter (flash back screen is stainless steel)



Exhaust endcap fasteners (small allen key bolts) be careful with them as i have already stripped one out, and am considering replacing em with hex head jobs.

My 2013 Honda crf 250 L has a metal gas tank. I don't think a magnet sticks to plastic

Metal here in NA, are you saying it's plastic on the bikes in OZ ?

Sorry...WRONG! CRF250L tank is metal....saw, touched and poked the CRF at the dealer. Yes, KTM's have plastic tanks and somehow they make it pass the Federal tests for evaporative emissions.

BUT....having made numerous vehicles "street legal" in Michigan, plastic aftermarket tanks never get a second look. Law enforcement is interested in making sure the lisence, insurance, and frame serial numbers match up. On the rare occasion you might get a law enforcement person who can identify a DOT legal knobby tire.

REDDOG: "Exhaust endcap fasteners (small allen key bolts) be careful with them as i have already stripped one out, and am considering replacing em with hex head jobs."...if you get them out without stripping the THREADS, reinstall them with anti sieze bolt compound....that was a constant pain in the ass on the little M6's that held in the muffler insert on my XR400R

Yup. My old Nelson-Rigg magnetic tank bag lives on my metal CRFL gas tank.

Can you take a picture of bag installed? My seat of the pants seems to tell me decent sized tank bags to appropriately fit the CRF are far and few between.

Mine as you can clearly see in the pic, is plastic...my XR250R (04) was plastic...only ones i know of that are steel, are the early XR's/XL's and some early Yammies...i meant stripped the allen key holey thing. burred it over. had to drill it out (on a week old bike, keen eh?). need to offload this flippin can, my XR wasnt nearly as big as this thing..i did go for a bit of a blast without the airbox snorkel in, gets a bit of a roar happening, definitely no bogging down, and bettter throttle response, but it does idle a smidge rough (can hardly feel it).

Red-Dog....let me apologize RE: steel vs plastic. Steel here in USA. Evap refers to carbon canister crap....didn't see it on the US model I saw....but it might be buried somewhere on the bike, unlike the mess of hoses, brackets and cans that made up the vapor mess on my Husky TE610, hung off the side of the engine.

Glad you got those cheap allen "button heads" out. The local hardware here sells 8.8 and 10.9 grade hex head metrics with the built in washer....most with a 8mm hex.....but they still need antisieze whern installed on the hot exhaust
