Anyone know of any companies that make larger fuel tanks for an xl1000v? Carb model.

Just in case anybody on here actually owns a 125, they may be interested to know that BMW R1150GS handguards are a straightforward fit and offer good weather protection. They do hit the fairing on lock, but so would any handguards as the clearance is so small.

Have decided BMW's are not for me, very effective but not involving like the Scrambler or AT. Great for long distance work but I find it too big for my aged limbs so I have brought another Transalp (XL650V)...
