    Greetings,
    Does anyone know of a vendor that offers kevlar or carbon fiber-type tank guards that affix to the lower lobes of Safari's SE tank to protect it in the event the bike winds up on its side?
    In the past, I remember seeing these type of guards for the stock tank, but not for Safari's SE tank.

    Thanks for your suggestions!

    Not much response, but in case there's still someone who knows where to source this item, BTT.

    If you make them, we will come!

    Cool idea. I'll take a set, and I know of at least three other people who could use them.

    Carbon fiber, Titanium, and gasoline, you can never have too much of them...
    Unless of course your bike is on fire. :lol3

    Super, just super! :clap

    With the exorbitant price of these tanks, it only makes sense to protect them from likely damage the best we can. Not to mention what a puncture would do if it occurred many miles from civilization...
