Alternative tanks fro an R80

Postby alexxx » Fri Nov 01, 2019 5:37 pm

Looking to fit an alternative tank to an R80 as I am considering a scrambler build.
Has anyone used a tank that has been an easy unit to modify and fit?
Regards

There are three basic styles of tank that can be fitted without any serious modification... The 18 litre small tank, the 22 litre large tank (both from the /5-/6 models) and the 24 litre tank already fitted. Not sure how easy it would be to fit a 'GS tank or a R45/R65 tank. The main issue with any of the tanks is clearance for items fitted under the tank (relays, ignition modules, connectors & etc.) but these could probably be relocated. The best bet would be to decide which tank you like, source it and see what mods are needed to fit it.
