    I have a 43ltr Acerbis gas tank for my BMW R80G/S. I need a new gas cap and hoping there is one with a 90 degree elbow for venting as my tank bag pinches the hose. What cap will fit? thanks and merry christmas!

    We really do not know if the Large Acerbis cap will fit this tank. I am assume it will as they did make a aftermarket tank for this at one time.

    We have had a customer put a 90 degree elbow in his vent and it seemed to work great.

    We hope everyone had a great Holiday! Our crew will be out riding tomorrow so we will be closed til Wednesday.

    That's what I did, and it snapped off and there isn't much left of the vent tube, the center has almost broken out. Just nervous if I patch it, water will get in or I'll obstruct the vent. Any way to find out if the large one will fit?

    If you get a measurement of the diameter then we can see if they are the same size. If they are I am sure they will fit..

    On the vent topic again, you can use a locking Acerbis cap and it's self venting with no nipple on top. This works for tank bags great!

    Hi, I noticed you guys carry fuel tanks for trucks as well. Any chance of an auxiliary or oversized tank for a 09' Toyota Tacoma four door?

    Hello

    We do not have one for the Tacoma's unfortunately. We could get you a in bed tank that cap tap into the existing system but thats about it.

    Happy New Year!

    Any chance of finding an Acerbis 5.8 Gallon Tank for 1988 - 2000 XR600Rs? I missed the blowout awhile back.

    The Acerbis 5.8g tank is the same tank for the XR250/400/600/650L. It is just that the 250/400, 600, and 650L all use different mounting hardware. We should have the correct hardware to install these on the 600 pretty soon.

    We have learned that the XR600 Tanks will be a special order only. (3 Months) We have had customers fit the XR400 tanks on with the included hardware.

    So, I see you list the 6 gallon Acerbis tank to fit the '95-'02 Yamaha XT600. I thought that the '90-'95 models had no changes to the frame, perhaps only the side panels is what might have changed after '95. Is it safe to assume that the Acerbis tank will fit '90-'95 models as well?

    Not sure why we are not getting these emails guys.. Sorry.

    Acerbis actually made a different part number for the 1990-94 models. We just cannot ge this anymore. I am not sure if they will fit...Sorry!

    Sorry for the late reply. I talked with them and they had put this on the back burner due to the Jonah Street Dakar Project, and the holidays. They are going to finish this up and I will post any new info we get.

    We do not have any of these yet(IMS or Safari) . They are done and I am getting 2 for the media this week.. We are trying to figure out the best way to get these over without putting them on the next container as it will tak 6-8 weeks. Its possible we might air freight a pallet or 2 over soon!
