I received my fuel tanks the other day before we left on a bash, So i ripped the packadging apart and installed tested before the Thursday leaving.
Good packaging for posting as you can see.




Looks just like the original design with decals but you have a extra 8 litres :thumleft:


Stripped the old fairing side covers off, i like stripping ....hehehe


And on with the new.... :

The tanks are really cool and worth the penny. So much less hassle of will i make the next town. Now you are ready to ride while hanging on the cables. Extra 8 litres makes a big difference.

Here's a couple of pics from today, my first time off road on the 990 adv.

Leith Hill, Surrey lanes, very wet and pretty slippy with the front Scorp.. Plus I usually ride a 450exc so not used to the weightnearly lost the front a couple of times going down the gulley you can see behind but managed not to drop it

The weight up front never made any huge problem to me except it was more difficult to lift the front wheel.

Will provide you withthe link, Sent the manufacture requesting details. I have even heard they now have KTM part numbers.

Will revert soon.

Boo youtube!

Does SmugMug allow video?
