    Hy guys,

    i've got a Acerbis Sahara Tank to install on my XR 650R and need some advices.

    I've lost all parts to fit the tank so need a list of them to try to find them.

    Also need a go "How To" tutorial with photos for dummys.

    Also have a Hodakaguy tank braces and KTM fan (Spal 4").

    At this moment need some help:

    1) Identify all parts to fit sahara tank;

    2) Find radiator protection that fits along with Sahara tank and KTM fan (Spal 4"):

    2.1. Can Devol be sucess fitted or only the Unabiker?

    Unfortunately Acerbis won't sell you the hardware separately from the tank so you'll have to do a little home brew building. Here's a link to some pics I posted up of the OEM Hardware, scroll down to post #13: CLICK HERE

    As far as the radiator brace goes I would just run the tank/tanker brace combo, it really will offer plenty of protection without the brace. I'm not sure what all guards will work with the tanker brace but most should.

    Hope this helps

    You will better function from your fan if you can aerodynamically seperate the front side from the back side of the fan. Look at the fan shroud in your truck/car.
