    I need the range for out here in the desert in Nevada, and the 16 liter (more like 17 at least) Safari tank fits the bill perfectly. The Corbin seat didn't fit at all, but the stocker fit just fine. I also needed to modify the cross-brace where it connects to the frame downtube, but that was an easy fix as well. The tank seems very well built and looks like it can take the abuse I will throw at it. From the riders position it looks and feels just like the stocker. It doesn't get in the way in technical stuff, hillclimbs or when I have to move all over it. I also have the monster on my TE610 as well, so that shows how much I like them. I've had opportunities to communicate with JustGasTanks and they totally rock :deal

    Do you have any updated status on the Safari or IMS tanks for the WR250R?

    thanks

    i'd love to give you guys some money, but nobody wants to make a tank for the ATK, even when i have a stock one for modeling and offer to pay a premium to have it made.

    problem is a very small market, maybe 20 or so.

    I just experienced the same or a similar problem and managed to fix it myself.
    It could be that you issue was worse than mine but here's what I did....

    Mine stock pump hit the little Mikuni vacuum pump so it sat angled so much I couldn't get the screws to start but if I leaned on it a bit it was quite close but then of course I didn't want to have to do that so....

    Our Fix was to remove the Mikuni pump, cover all it's pipes with tape to stop metal fillings getting in and cut the top un-used mounting bracket off it.
    I also filed a rounded edge on the pump for extra clearance.
    Re-install the Mikuni pump and now my pump fits perfectly, no more rubbing, screws go straight in by hand. yay !

    So anyone else having this problem could have a look and see if doing that might give you enough clearance to make it work for you too.
    Having no idea how bad your issue was I guess it is possible that this may not be enough for your tanks, but though I'd post as I found this thread while searching to see if anyone else had posted of the problem.

    Cheers

    I would love to have a larger tank for my 1983 Yamaha XT550 but no one makes one (anymore). Is there any way to tell if a different tank could be modified to fit? One from a xt600 maybe?

    Thank you for this info!

    We have 8-10 perfect WR250R shells(minus the pump area molded a bit deep) here at the shop! Contact us if you are interested. We will make you a deal.

    These do not come with any mikuni pump but we do sell these.

    The only way would be to try one on here. I would assume you could get a XT600 or 650L on there. Something that would not take any air scoops/shrouds.

    I see the 5.8 XR600R tank is back in stock in White. Any chance of selling me a red 5.8 XR650L with the XR600R mounting hardware? Please let me know.

    We do not know what this is off of...

    It almost looks like the shrouds off of a chinese brand bike that I have seen running around.

    We are hoping to get them sent to us before our next shipment comes. Worse case it will be 6-8 weeks.

    Thanks

    What about either OE replica or Azzalin tanks for the Elefant? Both were originally manufactured by Acerbis. Think they still have a mold around somewhere?
