New Tank from Clarke Manufacturing coming late fall......
Reply Quote
Recently I saw Clarkes ad in Cycle News for the tank for the Yamaha XT 225 and thought I would send 'em an e-mail and ask about a tank for the TW. Here is the response I got: "Due to the amazing response for the XT225, we more than likely will be working on a tank for the TW200. It should be ready late fall... Thanks. Chris." I say that we all shoot them an e-mail begging for a tank. Capt D.

As long as it comes in black or O.D. green, holds at least a gallon more than my XT350 tank, cures warts and hangnails and results in world peace, I'm in.

ATXthumper the Texas state inspection has no requirement for a steel tank. Many street legal bikes come with a plastic tank (Buell, Ducati, KTM, etc).

The only reqirement for inspection is that the tank is firmly attached.

All of the inspection stations have a manual that you can read upon request. I was a licensed inspector when I worked for Harley-Davidson.

Any idea on the capacity? With 4 gallons only our sore butts could stop us.
