If the rear can become a tank then this will be the bike for me 100%. The desert rallyes (Tuareg, El chott, Alto Turia) that I do only require a capacity between 13-17L and the regulations seem to be going towards lower capacities for safety (ie weight reasons). I did the Tuareg rallye with a 13L front tank and 5L rear tank and didn't have to use the rear one.
I understand in Aus there are a few wide open spaces so the bigger capacity is needed. How much fuel approx will the 2009's hold if the rear sub frame can be utilised for fuel. If it's around 15L I'd buy one today, I've been erring towards the orange or a 2008 Husabrg with clarke tank, as a 13L tank keeps the bike so compact and a dream to ride. I tried a mecasystems 525 with the tanks full and it was like a boat in the dunes.

There is a couple of us that want to hit the Pharaohs rallye in Oct 09

Mind you a Berg in 2010 El Dakaro in Sth America would be pretty cool as well

Im guessing looking at between 5-6 L so that would be around 13-14 L with the stock body work.............as you say it would make the 570 a perfect bike for the rallye enduro cup class at Optic 2000 etc

Subframe tank

I've had a look at mine to see how it could be done. If the subframe is fuel tight.

Filling is done from the original filler. Speed of fill would depend on the size of the breather and balance hose. This would give about 13lts total.

I will look at this for Finke and Condo next year.
