We used to do the Long Range Tanks as it was part and parcel of purchasing Apophis Parts.

As we are predominantly a Rotax engine company we are happy for Nick @ Force to have them made and sell to those that want them. They are now available in Harley green and Armstrong green..

MT tank range has been a question for years.

Various tanks have been fitted, there was a list on the forum but I don't think it still exists

Larger tanks were produced in small numbers but were never popular, some riders refitting standard sized tanks . I seem to recall ugliness, reduced steering lock, fuel slop making handling 'odd' , were mentioned as downsides.

Years ago one owner installed an secondary tank on his rear rank with a tube joined to the main fuel line but that was trialled and discarded

A larger tank may well be useful for some riders but I can't recall anyone being that keen on them- hence their scarcity

I still have one of the go-to mods for long range tanks, I believe it's an XR 22 litre tank, once championed by Bunker before the purpose made tanks were available.
It's cluttering up my garage, and officially belongs to Pirate, if it's of use to someone then please contact him.
