    Nice thing about the 5.8 gallon tanks is twin petcocks, and each have a reserve. I've had IMS 4.7 and Clarke tanks on my xrl's, a spirited pace would have me turning to reserve in 100 miles. :bluduh
    XR400 is gonna be sippier on fuel, and 5.8 is a big tank to do tough singletrack. I'm pretty sure it's the same 5.8 tank on 400's 600R's or 650L's, just different mounts, 650R is a whole nuther animal.

    I agree and try picking that extra weight up on a 100+ day or any day as far as that is concerned. Have thought about taking mine back off and putting stock back on:huh but since I already spent the money it stays for the reasons mentioned above.

    Seriously? You have to ask? Hell, you laugh at every fart you hear or produce. Maybe nothing wrong, just socially still a 10yr old.
