    NEW XT350 Tank NIB - NOS $$$ ?

    I just found a brand new, in the box, matches my bike 1988-90 XT350 tank in Limassol, CY, Cyprus
    It's a little island off of Lebanon. How much should I pay with shipping?

    Sounds exotic and complicated and expensive. Why not a Clarke tank and be done with it? On the other hand, may make for a good story. MBW

    I wanted metal. Never really was a fan of plastic other than the red tank that was on my CR480. I was thinking of putting the factory graphics kit on it and clear coating. The XT350 tanks seem to fit pretty well from the pics. I have other bikes that are and look pieced together. I wanted this bike "dubby" to keep a clean factory look.

    Does anyone have opinions XT225 VS XT350 tanks? Im all ears..

    My metal XT225 tank mounted up without much difficulty at all and very little fuel remains inaccessible to the petcock on level ground. The Clarke XT350 tank that came on my second bike is a different story. Even with 2" risers there is slight conflict with tank and bars in full lock turns. Even with front of tank mounted as high as possible about 3 quarts of fuel estimated remains inaccessible to the petcock unless you are very good at lofting the front tire several times a minute once petcock runs dry. The stock seat really benefits from cutting and trimming to bend up and lay flush against XT350 tank. Even still there is a cosmetic dis-connect as the XT350 tank profile does not match up well with the TW seat.

    All in all the extra fuel in the XT350 tank is very nice occasionally but the XT225 tank looks better. Both negate the narrow feel one gets with the stock tank, they makes the TW seem bigger.

    I do prefer the metal tank in that magnets can secure park and event passes, notes on upcoming turns, shopping lists and maintenance Post-a-Notes like "NO OIL!".

    Thanks Fred. Do the same negatives apply to the oem metal tank as they do to the Clark plastic tank?

    That I do not know, except if there is tank to steering conflict the metal tank will not innocently deform out the way like the plastic tank. I have thin dense foam to act as a shock absorber reducing chance of damage. However with a bit more work I could have modified the steering stops on frame to limit the degree of permissible steering rotation. Either way I gain a little larger turning radius.

    I did not mount up the larger tank myself so perhaps you could do a better job with a metal XT350 tank. Mine was originally done for a TW with a single tractor seat and when I modified things to restore the OEM seat I very well could have missed optimizing things for the best possible tank location. You very well might do better. Check out Perano's clean install, shoot him a PM if this link just raises more questions:XT350 Tank Installed

    As far as shipping costs there should be USPS shipping cost calculators on-line that might give a ballpark estimate for the Mediterranean tank
