Is it possible to only buy the tanks? If so, how much are they, and is the pump system necessary for proper fuel flow, or is it gravity fed? If a pump system is required, how much is it?

Thanks!

Too cool to see behind the curtain at Cogent Dynamics! I went with their rear shock and DDCs up front on the DR - both made a huge difference in how well the bike now behaves off road.
