    Safari Fuel Tanks Fairing

    Very prone to cracking in minor crashes, etc

    I bought this fairing to supplement my Safari tank. I was looking for better wind protection and to get the dash up from the low stock position. First, I wished to have it in Suzuki Blue color, so I got spray paint made for plastics and fiberglass, did three coats and finished with a clear coat. The paint would chip away at the slightest contact with anything. If you wish to add color, do so with vinyl sticker sheeting, since the white coating is actually pretty nicely done. Second, this mounts directly to the tank by four screws. Not a good setup. One surprise is that plastic tanks expand as they are used. My Safari tank actually holds nearly 8.5 gallons because of this expansion. However, the holes in the tank for the fairing no longer lined up because of this fact. Was a real pain needing two people, one person pushing in on the tank and the other screwing in the mounting screw. I could see this causing the thread to strip after repeated mountings after maintenance. Lastly, I went on a mild Dual sport ride, went down in deep ruts twice, once on each side. The fairing cracked badly each side, on the ride side the dash panel actually became detached from the faring by a couple of inches. So no, I don't recommend this fairing, unless you don't use your DR as a dual sport where you could go down. But you would still have the expansion/mounting problems if this was say, on a supermoto. I ended up getting the custom made fairing from a maker also in Australia (some research and you will find it, can't mention here because RMATVMC doesn't sell it), and it is based on the rally design, mounting to the frame of the bike, and doesn't touch the tank at all. MUCH better.

    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.

    Safari tank for wr250f

    Brought this for a 2015 wr250f yamaha I do a lot of long distance multi day rides.the safari tank is the largest one you can get for the wr that I could find.its a great quality tank and does not interfere with riding at all,I just did an air filter change about 15 minutes as you have to lift the tank to do it now which is ok for me. Would recommend to anyone looking for more fuel range out of there bike.
