Good fit whit some adjustment.
Fits perfectly. Easy install.
I bought this tank ... Dont know why ... I guess because its the only available tank on the market for my bike ... It has its own radiator shrouds ... Which is absolutely pointless in my opinion because i cant apply my factory plastics or my graphics kit ... Why cant yall just make a factory tank? How hard is that?
This tank was a perfect fit for my YZ125 to convert it to a woods bike! Easy install for female rider and durable for every tip over so far!
shipped quickly. easy fit.
No waiting around!! Tank arrived in just a few days. Tank was installed on 2008 KTM 450 exc-r. Could not be happier. Tank fit perfect. Cleared radiator fan. I bought the natural color, which allows you to see fuel level.
Great tank, instructions were horrible
Fits great! Everything necessary for the installation was included.
Tank works fine with one glaring exception. Unlike the well made (but too small) stock KTM tank, Acerbis decided to save pennies (on a $275 tank?!?) and forgo using a brass nut/insert for the 4 screws that mount the fuel pump interface - SECURELY. As a result, they chose to have customers screw straight into the plastic, which is VERY easily prone to stripping out, causing your tank to leak. I knew this going into it because I'd reviewed a video on this install before starting (from Slavens), and was VERY careful not to strip them out and yet I still did (you DO need to apply enough pressure to the screws so that they securely seal the gasket to the tank), and the tank quickly began to leak at this location. This resulted in an entire day of epoxying, waiting, tapping and doing that 3 times to fix Acerbis's poor and cheap design choice. I finally had to resort to using a bigger screw that would securely bite into the plastic (#14x1"- grind the tip down first), since the JB Weld plastic epoxy simply would not adhere to the tank (after 3 tries). So in addition to extra costs, and the cost of my time, I lost a day of riding. VERY disappointed that an otherwise nice tank is marred by Acerbis's choice to save literally, pennies by not simply using brass nut inserts at this critical location. Surprisingly, Acerbis DID use brass nut inserts on the top of the tank, where the shrouds mount (a much less critical connection than sealing up the tank and pump), so why they chose to go cheap at this other spot is beyond me. They also require you to not re-use the stock fittings at the tank's feed exit. And they require you to use funky rubber bands (that I suspect will eventually break) to connect the shrouds to the radiator, rather than designing something more durable. If I had it to do over again, I'd take another look at the IMS tank.
The positives? bigger tank, a bit easier to see the fuel level left with the natural color plastic, nice looking cap/fuel feed.
Not a fan of big tanks but this one looks good because it incorporates the stock shrouds.
The on-seat profile is good as the extra capacity is forward.
I don’t like the jutting up tank fill area and would prefer a lower flatter cap area mostly because it’s a little ugly. The fuel pump and some other fittings use screws into plastic instead of the OEM tank threaded type. It’s a little unnerving not to snug tightly the fuel pump. Instructions were not detailed. But overall nice

Question:Q: How many miles can I get with this tank on a yz125?Question asked 24 days ago
Question answered by PaulUser's contributor status: Top 10Question answered 24 days agoAnswer: A: I'm sorry that I don't know the model-year of your YZ125. To help us to find parts to fit correctly, we will need the model year.
Due to many variables, it is not possible to predict what your fuel economy might be.
The 2014 YZ125 has a 2-gallon fuel tank. The Acerbis tank for the 2014 YZ125 holds 3.2 gallons, so you can ride half-again further than with the stock tank.

Question:Q: Looking st purchasing this gas tank and a new plastic kit but how do I know if my plastics will fit this tank.Question asked Over 6 months ago
Question answered by DaveGearheadUser's contributor status: Top 1Question answered Over 6 months agoAnswer: A: You will need to choose the MAKE/MODEL/YEAR for the bike you are working with. Once you choose the plastic kit you want then you will go to the fuel tank and do the same thing. Everything should work together by following this process.
