1999 600 elduro Big tank

When I bought my 600 it came with a blue larger gas tank he said it was for desert racing, anyway today I had to install a new carb to frame boot and changed the tank over to the big one. The bolt holes on the side did not line up with the frame but everything else did. Is there a bracket that was available or is this just plain off a newer bike? Any ideas would be great.

Hi!

Long time since I posted here for the last time Kinda rusty my english nowadays.

I'm not sure if we're talking about the same tank but I suppose it's an FR tank. Just like Ned said the tank holds on by the seat, the front bolt (both the FE and the FR tank have it) and a small "thingy" (how can i describe it ) a small ruber support point on the frame by the right side of the bike (again, both my tanks sit there).




Not great pics. I can get some others as my bike seized at the beggining of the year and it's completely in parts so I can restore her to her former glory.

Here in Portugal, really can't say for the rest of Europe, we only had at that time (199 the FE and the FC range in 400 and 600 engines so, I never saw live any FR or FM or any other range of models.

Hope I could be of any help.

Yes that's the exact blue tank I put on, I just don't have any rubber mounts on the lower sides. Also the extra lower petcock is it a reserve feature? Also mine was new and it had no decals now that I see yours I will buy some for it.

Hi!

This is the infamous rubber mount


Regarding the petcocks, I can't fully understand what you're trying to say. Are you asking if the lower petcock is the reserve one? 'Cause in my case, all the petcocks in both tanks, don't have a fully functional reserve position. They use all the gas they can

For what I saw when searching for mine, you are a lucky man if your tank is a new one!

Cheers

OK Got it! They are on off valves for each side, so I can keep one closed use that side then turn on the other side and use it as my reserve.

Hello, all.
I want one of these large fuel tanks!
Does anyone have one that's available?
I ride in the desert on my FE400, and would certainly like more travelling range.
If this type is not available, are there any other options?
Thanks for helping.
I like the double headlights, too!
cheers

They are no longer available new. Sometimes you will see one on ebay or Craigs list. You can place a wanted ad here in the classifieds section.

Another option is the number plate side tank which fits 88-99. The last time I inquired about a new one they were on back order so there is a chance they are still produced.

This Austrialian Importers site still has them listed.

New FR tank

Hello.
I have a brand new FR tank with new decals, but i live i Sweden so it`s perhaps to expensive to send it to the US
