Hi Team,

Just thought I'd ask on here before I put a good hole in £300... does anyone have an oversize tank for an '02 XR400 floating about? Was after the IMS 4.0 gallon one in Natural colour, but would also be happy with a Clarke or Acerbis.

Done a lot of looking around, and 98% of them are in the US, working out about £250, excl. 20% customs charge. Sinister Sports have the IMS ones on their website for £275, but thought there my be something a little more affordable available gathering dust in someones garage.

Thanks.

No - just using it as an example of sometimes what it takes to get rare parts. When he couldn't find one in the UK, he instead went to the US and bought one cheaply there and flew back with it on his lap. US customs took some persuading to let him board with it after they sniffed it :)

Totally irrelevant to the thread!
OP referenced "Done a lot of looking around, and 98% of them are in the US"

I've given an example of how a rare aftermarket tank can be imported from overseas. Have you got any better constructive suggestions?

Still it keeps the thread bumped :)
