Don't know which forum this should be in.

I have seen a picture of an auxhillary rear mounted gas tank whhich is fairly flat and wraps around the rear fender - which keeps the center of gravity low and does not affect the seat/sitting position.

Does anyone know where one can find these gas tanks.

The picture I saw, came from a UK picture of a Gas Gas Pampera.

I saw one of these in an older Acerbis catalog a whilst back for the XR650R.
Mebbe they make em for different models now.

Although sitting on a couple of gallons of flammable material sorta would give me the willies. :eek:
Guess the CT70 riders are used to it. :laugh:

The Acerbis one sits a bit high, and is not a wrap around. The one I have seen keeps the center of gravity low, and does not extend very much off of seat height - almost like a plastic saddle bag. Wish I could find this tank in the USA - Any of our UK friends know of a tank like this ?
