Bad fitment, questionable brackets
7.9 Gal option

Requires removing the charcoal canister. Not a big deal, just didn't realize it ahead of time.

There is a right and left shoulder bolt with different standoffs. This appears to be incorrect and I lathed them down to the same standoff distance. See photo showing misfit as shipped.

Both shoulder bolts were not providing clamp load because of tolerances in the plastic molding. Lathed both down in this dimension as well. Could have just added a second washer, but I was already at the lathe...

The lower mounting brackets are a bit lack luster. Welded on a gusset to each end.

One fuel cap did not seal.

Tolerances in the mounting bracket weren't handled well and I had to drill some bolt holes.

The instructions need to be rewritten using current hardware. They show spacers that don't exist and is misleading.

Cheap hardware for an $800 tank. Didn't use any of it.

All that said it's a good design and I like it. It just took some work.

Best value for the 690
The fuel tank does exactly what it says it will do and more. It helps with wind on long riding days, and protects the front end of the bike in case it spills. Fuel Range doubles, it fits with my Seat Concepts seat, Other fuel options cost 3x as much and carry less fuel. There is a trade off in looks, the Rally raid fuel tanks and fairing look better, but for 2900$ that’s a big trade off!
The stock fuel lines can kink and close off when it’s hot. I will be replacing these soon. I have drained fuel from my safari tank to help my friends 800 GS get to gas stations on long trips in Baja.

Not a great fit
For the price I expected the fit and finish to be much better. The finish had a bunch of little bubbles in the plastic. Nothing that would effect the product, but looked cheap. The fitment was a pain! It does not line up that great and took some work to get it in place. Also does not work with rad guards, at least the Flatland guards. The seat is hard to install and I cut the front of my Seat Concepts seat when installing it with the tank. Also every time I remove the fuel cap, the rubber insert falls out. I love the idea of extra gas for my KTM 690, but this could have been done so much better.

Will this work with the tusk crash bars on a KLR650?
