Q: Do I need to drill into my factory gas tank?
A: No you do not need to drill into the gas tank. However, on the F650/700/800GS you will need to drill two 9/16” holes near the rear signal light to run the fuel and vent lines into the under seat area. On the KTM 1050/1190/1290, if you have a charcoal canister you will need to drill a hole into the rear tail section cover.
Q: Do you make a tank for my bike?
A: Currently we have Camel Tanks for 2008-current BMW F650GS (twin), F700GS and F800GS (except GSA), KTM 1050/1090/1190/1290 Adventure, Honda CRF250L, Yamaha WR250R/X, BMW R1200GS(A) and Honda CRF1000L Africa Twin.
Q: Can I use a Camel Tank if I don't have panniers?
A: Yes! You do not need a pannier rack system to use Camel Tank.
Q: How does the fuel from the Camel Tank get into the factory tank?
A: The Camel Tank’s fuel supply line plugs into the main tank’s vent line. When the motor is running and consuming fuel, vacuum is created in the factory fuel tank and that vacuum pulls fuel from the Camel Tank into the main tank.
Q: How much extra fuel does the Camel Tank provide?
A: The tank for the BMW F800GS is 7 litres and the tank for the KTM 1190, Honda CRF250L, Honda CRF1000L, Yamaha WR250R/X and BMW R1200GS(A) are all 6 litres.
Q: Why can I only fill the tank to 95% of it’s volume?
A: The other 5% is required for expansion of fuel.
Q: I ride a bike with lowered suspension, will the Camel Tank fit on my bike?
A: Yes! The tank was designed to work with both standard and lowered bikes.

A: No, please see the individual product pages for a list of pannier systems each tank will fit.
