08 Fuel Tank

I believe the stock 08 fuel tanks are 10.5 liters. My 05 has 9 liters. Will the 08 tank fit on my bike and I wonder how much it is? I know it may not seem cost effective to add only 1.5 liters but it is enough for an extra 13 miles or so. That and maybe an auxiliary tank would give me 3.4 gallons . I don't want the 4 gallon tank right now.

The tanks are the same from '06 to present. It will bolt right up to your '05. I upgraded my '05 without issue. You will need the new style shrouds as well.

The newer style tank helps with air flow past the radiator (look at the shroud shape), and my bike runs noticeable cooler. That 's a better benefit than the slight increased fuel capacity.

Thanks John. I suppose you are using the 06 shroud graphics also because I believe the side of the tank is a little different shape. You know our 05's have a distinct graphic design so in your opinion how does it look now with tank graphics a little different? That is unless you have the 05 stickers on the newer tank shrouds

All tanks, seats and plastic fits all models from 2000 to 2009 (not including 09 of course).
When using the new tank, introduced in 06, you also need the new shrouds (with the appropriate decals of course).

It looks just a 2006 Husaberg, because I used the stock 2006 shroud decals. You could use the 2007 or 2008 decals too. They are all the same shape.

RE: Re: RE: Re: 08 Fuel Tank

Thanks,
For now I ordered two 1 liter MSR aluminum fuel bottles. I'm thinking of a little experiment. In the area where the auxilary tank mounts, instead fabricate fuel bottle holders. Whether I can get 1 or two in there remains to be seen until they arrive by mail. One could go in the backpack if needed, but I want both liters under the seat if possible. Thats more than the newer tank and almost as much as the auxilary. I usually stop anyway a few times on a big ride. Just pull the seat, unhook fuel bottles, dump in and go for another 17 miles or so. The bottles were 15 dollars each and I should get 100 total miles with them along with the stock tank. With smaller rides, just leave them out.

Re: 08 Fuel Tank

Thought I would pick up this old thread.
I haven't upgraded to the 06 larger fuel tank yet. And you know it is only 1 liter and a half or so more than the 05.
Other thing is that I like my tank and graphic design. So what I have done as an experiment was to strap a 33 oz msr fuel bottle directly opposite the slip on exhaust. I used mini fire extinguisher straps that work great and
mounted it right under the seat there. It even looks Iike it won't rub on the tire. I will have to see as this is
just a preliminary set up for now. And if it doesn't rub, well then I have about the same amount of fuel as the
tank upgrade with the bottle in a relatively inconspicuous place.
Also, I would like to know if anyone has an auxiliary fuel tank for sale. I haven't seen them in a while.

Pollo go boom. Just kidding.

Remember that the '06-'08 tank is more than just bigger capacity. It allows better airflow through the radiator--a noticeable improvement. That funky circle in the newer style shrouds is definitely functional.
