    I just put a stock steel XT225 tank on my TDub, it went on pretty easy, looks good and gives me another half gallon of gas. 2.3 gallons ain't a lot, but it sure makes me feel better. I can't post pictures, but if someone can do it for me I'll e mail them to you.

    Thank you for posting these for me. You can see my small front rack too, handy for a small tool bag or spare tube.

    Didn't need risers, clearence is close but no problems. It should give me a 150 mile range easy enough, more if I'm careful.

    According to the manual the TW tank holds 1.8 gal. including a .45 gallon reserve.



    The XT225 tank holds 2.3 gal including a .53 gallon reserve. So I get more in the tank and a larger reserve, it's not a lot but it sure will be nice to have out there on the back roads.

    I didn't do anything to the seat to get it to fit, just flexed it back on. I did trim the plastic on the left side to get to the petcock. The posts on the frame, that hold the front rubber puck tank mounts, needed 1/4 inch cut off on each side and I trimmed the stock pucks to be 1/4" thinner on each side. Other than that it bolted right up.
