    I should think you'll get an answer within minutes of posting.

    From memory they are different, but don't quote me on it.

  4. That's correct - the XR6 mounts are different but the Acerbis 21L tanks can be adapted to fit all three. I have an XR250/400 Acerbis for my TTR when I was still doing big desert trips. The front and rear mounts are just made of 4mm thick aluminium sheet, and I adapted a bit of hollow section to catch the front of the seat behind the tank.
