    Just got done mounting a 1 1/2 gal Koppins gas tank on the DRZ rack. Had to fab a plate to attach it to. Turned out pretty good, except when I fill it it there is some air in the top. Has some slosh when it rocks back and forth.

    Guess I will test it out tomorrow. :pope

    I use a guy in Gentry. Used to work for us before he set up shop on his own. I think he is good.

    whats the stock DRZ tank range?

    those Koplin tanks are pretty neat.

    except Doc does it wrong, I think he put tools or something in his.

    2.6 gal stock - I hit reserve last trip at 105 miles and last 40 miles was Hwy when Albie and I came back Hwy 62 - we were running about 65-70 mph. Reserve is .6 gals so roughly 130 miles or so. That extra 1.5 gal should give me another 75. the good thing is I found it on Amazon for $38.00 with mount and free shipping. lot cheaper than buying a bigger tank and I can take it off if I need to.

    Do you happen to have a picture or a link to it? Would be a lot cheaper to go that route then buy a new tank right now.

    if albies junk was actually running, he wouldnt be riding that slow!

    no seriously, thats a 50mpg average I think?

    pretty good actually, im always surprised at how bad the actual fuel economy of a bike is

    makes me miss my xt225
