In South Africa

Will it possible for me in South Africa to order a tank from you?

Yes it is, but shipping could be very high due to the size of shipping box this tank requires.

Install?

So finally some time to strip the bike down & start checking things out connection & mounting wise. First issue i have is the tank hitting my EMIG post hardware, which keeps it from going full forward & not being able to install the rear mount sercure screw. Got to figure out something there. Next up is the fuel line routing, keeping the STOCK routing & installing inline fuel filters will be trickey. Last of all is the connections for the pump & sensor level, previously the connections were accessible from the front of the tank & then had the cover plate, not the case now. Hopefully Ken will chime in with his knowledge & expertise.

Fuel filters inline, will there possible be an issue with flow volume?

Hey Shawn, can you post some pictures of your Emig setup so we can see the interference. The tank clears both the Scott/Ohlins and RTT. You'll probably need to remove some material off your Emig, but let's have a look first.

As for the fuel line routing and connecting your fuel pump/fuel level sender, you can refer to the SM950, as they are the same as for this tank. Nothing too hair raising here...

If you still can't get her sorted, give me a call. I PM'd my number to you...


Regards ~ Ken

Ken- I'm just now getting to the installation of my tank. WOW!

The fit is perfect and it is going to be able to be removed in half the time of the stock tank. It is securely fastened to the bike- no slop whatsover. NONE. It looks phenomenol. Install was a breeze.

Bravo!

Thank you for taking on this project and obviously devoting a lot of time and attention to detail in this production.

Tank Install

So, go the NEW tank installed & did some putting around at the NEW & unimproved rowher flats (sorry couldn't resist) Having the emig dampner set up on my bike I needed to do a little material removal on the post hardware, piece of cake really, just filed some away & bingo, were in business. Routed the plumbing with same basic stock setup and added a nice 2 piece machined inline filter with replaceable core. Until I do my motoholligan mod this works out perfect.

All I can say is WOW as to how incrediable the ergos are & the overall feel with SM seat conversion as well. This tank is SLIM & a beautiful fit on the SE & really transforms the bike into a REAL motocross feeling machine. Peter the GRINCH will even attest to it himself

Again, THANK YOU Ken for your time effort on this project & being a true professional. Anybody here going to DVnr will get a chance to check it out themselves in person. Until then boys

RIDE ON!

Black tanks don't start shipping until tomorrow, but I'm sure those getting them will oblige you with some fine eye candy just as soon as they start showing up at their doors!

I've had a few riders ask me about were to locate the 90 degree breather if you happen to be using one. The stand alone breather allows you to run a dry-break if you plan on racing. It also will let you run a tank bag without interfering with the gas cap breather...


Here's how I mount and route mine:

The Acerbis locking cap has a vent system that doesn't rely on a hose at all. Another good option for tank bag users.

Yes they are Ken. I have been waiting to see all 3 color options before making my choice. Can you offer an opinon as to if the white/clear tank will hold its color, or do you think it would yellow over time with fuel stored in it? Thanks.
