I replaced my stock XR650L 2.8gal tank with this Acerbis 5.8gal tank. My range went from just over 100miles to well over 200 miles. The tank looks pretty good on the bike and fits the lines well. The color is a close match to the honda red, but the tank is textured so it doesn't look as glossy as the smooth honda parts.
Getting the tank on is a little bit difficult because you need the tank warm to spread the "wings" out so that it will clear the mount on the bike. I filled mine with really hot water and let it sit for 20minutes to soften up a bit. Went on fairly easily after that.
Obviously, the tank is much bigger, so it's heavier when full, but being plastic, it's lighter when empty. When sitting on the bike, your legs are spread out a little more, but it's still very comfortable.
Biggest complaint would be that the upper triple clamp comes in contact when the bars are turned to near full lock. This prevents you from locking the handlebars sideways unless you grind a bit of the steering lock off. The triple clamp also scratches the tank where it touches, so be sure to add spacers to the clamp bolts so that they don't protrude through the back side of the clamp.
Overall, the little annoyances are much better than the huge annoyance of only running 80miles to reserve, especially when you live in West Texas where it can be over 100mi between gas stations.
