rly DT250/350 tank. They're not "square" but they have a rad shape and a pretty wide tunnel.



DT tank and a flat track tail like this one from Airtech:

Actually, the later monoshock DT's had the shock running right up the backbone so those tanks should be about as wide as the SR tank.

I've considered grabbing a swinger from a letter DT and going mono shock with it actually.....too many options.

Mike I don't think I want a tracker seat on this one, I'm thinking more of a brat seat like on my 400 but a little slimmer and in brown leather.

Nice work!  That gas tank is custom.  I am thinking about using the same tires on my XT500. I am also running a VM36 and I love it, here are my current settings but I just bought a 6DH3 Needle and a P8 Needle Jet and will be trying those soon.

Pilot: 30
Needle Jet: Q5
Needle: 6FJ6 (clip raised two notches)
Slide: 2.5
Main: 220

I am running an open megaphone exhaust.  I am excited to see where you go with this bike!

Are you running with an air jet (in the intake bell)?
"Quality . . . you know what it is, yet you don't know what it is. But that's self-contradictory. But some things are better than others, that is, they have more quality. But when you try to say what the quality is, apart from the things that have it, it all goes poof! There's nothing to talk about. But if you can't say what Quality is, how do you know what it is, or how do you know that it even exists? If no one knows what it is, then for all practical purposes it doesn't exist at all. But for all practical purposes it really does exist."

Nice bike. Wish we got the 500 here. You can still buy new 250s though.

Have you considered the idea of a tank off a Yamaha XT 250/500 of the same erra?
There's a good chance they would fit more easily too.

Okay I change my mind on the tank.
For some reason I decided to read the standard sticker by the fuel cap:


Bwahahahahahahahahahahahahjaahha

Yes, just the stock one that came in the VM36.  I think it is a 2.0 if I remember right.
