Re: DRZ experts inside

The current production Acerbis 3.7 tank for the DRZ is a single petcock design.
Perhaps that dual petcock design is older 3.7 gal? or the 3.9 gal tank

Re: DRZ experts inside

Yes, it's definitely older. I got it with the bike not installed so not sure of the exact model.

Maybe I should take on another one. I may have some time on my hands in the near future....
That's how I got all those parts. I have been mowing, painting and fixing the house so we can list it and move forward.

Been a tough time. I did have a steak cooked in butter in a skillet yesterday. Not to mention hung out with our people. Was a hoot.

I'm afraid I'm deeply into debt to you, Erik and skinless Jim. Norton John even busted a knuckle on the hooligan.

Hey Mitch, the Seat Concepts seat is better, but you should find your own way....

The 3.9 are still made, they are sold for the 400e as they use the e mounting and supposedly donít have room for the fan. I recently purchased a black 3.9 dual petcock from justgastanks. I like the tank much better than the ims I replaced for it. Just my luck though first trip out to Emma long with the acerbis 3.9 I quickly overheated the bike so i ordered a fan and realized the fan wonít fit with the tank.

Re: DRZ experts inside

Tony, I am out of the KTM game, I did love every one of them. Now I have an Aprilia, and 5 Suzukis, I guess I am bleeding blue these days. Take good care of Mitch, he is a good guy.

Re: DRZ experts inside

Myself and a couple other riders worked the Hooligan over today at Ghostrider's place.
The old gal ran great. Very pleased.

However, this followed me home.
