Very Nice !
Looking at those nice new plastics and graphics, I'm wondering if anyone puts them aside and fits cheap aftermarket plastics for bush bashing and/or having saddlebags resting against.

I've seen full sets for the 2012 models as low as $89 (Polisport). Not sure if 2013's are a bit different.

I did that with my 2010 EXC 530 Champions Edition.
I had generic orange plastic on it (along with the 13 liter KTM tank), when it was time to sell it I put the original plastic on it.

I went up a tooth on the back of the 500.
I think with this gear ratio the front tire may last the life of the bike

I would contact them directly. When they were having fit issues with the previous gen tanks, they went out of their way to satisfy both the customer and get the product right. Good luck.

It's for the 500. 3.1 gallon. I have been in contact with them.

I really don't care what they do at this point. I'm not returning the tank. I won't put another Clockwork on one of my bikes, ever. I consider this a good lesson that only cost me $250, but could have cost the whole bike- or worse- me! The tank had about 2.1 motor hours of use. The fuel just dumped onto the motor- literally gushing down onto the header and all around the motor on every side. One spark or perhaps a glowing header . . . .

To install this, you need to cut and lengthen the wires that connect the base of the fuel pump to the top electrical connector. Personally, I prefer not to have spliced wires inside a fuel tank. I believe they should let you know about that little tid bit before you plop down cash for it. I bought a new fuel pump and will save this one for spare part. The whole process of replacing the fuel lines on the fuel pump and splicing wires is just a mess. On a component that is absolutely critical to getting home, I prefer not to have it mickey moused.

I already have the Acerbis 3.2 and it is perfect- just like every tank I've ever purchased from them.
