Back by popular demand! Sales of the F800GS Camel Tank kits dropped quite drastically after the F800GS was replaced by the new F750/850GS platform in 2018. We sold the remaining tank kits we had then discontinued the product. Then something strange happened, demand for the CT-V2 Camel Tank went through the roof and we were getting emails daily asking about the kit. We've done a short run of tanks and we'll make a decision about the kit's future based on sales of this latest batch.
Inspired by our own around the world motorcycle trip in 2009, the Camel Tank idea came when we were riding our F800gs through the deserts of Mongolia and Kazakhstan. Filling up with questionable-looking gas out of pop bottles sold on the roadside was less than ideal. Our riding partners were on a R1200GSA (32L) and a Yamaha 660 Tenere (22L); we were always the guy in the group that was low on fuel, it was frustrating and inconvenient.
Enter Camel Tank! A 7-liter (1.8 gal) auxiliary gas tank made for the twin-cylinder BMW F650 / F700 / F800 GS (not compatible with the GSA!) motorcycles with adventure riders in mind. Easy to install, factory-looking fit, and just fill with gas when you fill your main tank. Occupying the unused space between the rear tire and the pannier rack, the Camel Tank keeps the fuel weight low, balances out the weight of your exhaust system on the opposite side, and leaves your rear rack free for a duffle bag or top box.
Whether you're on your own around the world trip, iron butting it to your next destination down the highway, or simply exploring the woods near your home, we've got you covered.
