If no one one this forum has an extra one lying around, craigslist may be the best and cheapest option. People are constantly parting out 250's. You should be able to find at least one person parting out a 250 every month. Good luck!
I am also looking for a tank for my '06. The link to ebay has the blue one for sale at $300 but that's too much. Anyone have a cheaper option? I don't care about the color, I just want to ride my bike & my tank is rusted.
Also, can I easily take the cap and lock from my old tank and put it on another one?
if anyone's still interested, i have a tank in great condition with no dents and the inside was recently cleaned with muratic acid so there's no rest. pics are located via the link below. the tank is $50 and you can pick it up for free in hollywood or i'll ship it via usps with a tracking number for cost.
