    Yep. Also there has been some demand for Acerbis tanks as well.

    To a degree, yes. That's why we've been doing tanks other than the OEM. We've been concentrating on catching up with our back orders before diving into heavily patterning new models. We've got patterns for several bikes now but we aren't going to start production until we are caught up on what we have now. And I do apologize for the back log guys. I had no idea this was going to take off like it has.

    We've updated our website gallery with images of the OEM tanks for the gen 1 and gen 2 KLR 650's.

    Thanks!

    Our gallery page has been updated with photos of the standard colors being offered now. These are just the production colors and not custom order colors or camo patterns. The photos are at the bottom of the gallery page. I'll put them at the top as soon as I can.

    I asked a while back about making your product work on my non vented IMS KLR650 tank. You asked me to email pictures of the tank, which I did.

    Any progress on that or should I just purchase the standard on and alter the straps to make it work for me?

    I should have that ready for you shortly. I wanted to make sure that the way we set up the straps would be secure. It appears to be so I'm going to begin offering that variation within the next week. You're first on the list to get one of them.

    If you want to drop it off one weekend and pick it up the next that your home, let me know. That way, you aren't sitting around while it's being patterned and you can enjoy your time home.

    Update: We've caught up on some of our back orders and will have stock in on some of the Tank Vest offerings in the next day or so. We've also added a Multicam and ACU camo pattern to our line up.

    Any progress on something for a 96+ DR650? I have the 4.9 IMS tank. Would be very interested in a black version.

    I have ATV panniers and they get me by but they are pretty sad. Something like this looks AWESOME.

    I have located a DR650 bike to pattern. I am working on acquiring an IMS tank for the bike to pattern as well since there is a growing interest in the application.

    If you can't find an ims tank for the dr650 locally, let me know! If I can afford to, I might be able to ship mine to you for a little while. Thanks :ear

    We've updated our website and in the next few hours will have inventory in stock ready for shipping.

    For those of you who are looking for the IMS tank vest for the tank without the vents, we've finished our testing and they will be added to our site in the next 24 hours or so.

    Thanks!

    We now offer the Tank Vest for the IMS non vented extended range tank for the KLR 650. We will have a model for the Suzuki V-Strom motorcycle available before Christmas..
