@GodSilla just seen this...
Thanks for that. I have sent the Acerbis tank back and gotten a refund, it was for a 2019 SXF or something according to the numbers on the tank.
I wouldn't have bits of hairbands holding my shrouds on either, that just says "wrong tank" and "bad fit" to me. Someone posted a photo of some brackets, but they also looked like shite to be honest, but better than hair bands eh.
I am waiting for IMS to get their 20 litre jobbie made, then we'll see if they fit. I live in hope eh............
I posted pic of the brackets, which came with my tank from ktm . They fit perfectly.
All of SA except Adelaide metro.
I am a fan of the very practical rubber o rings that hold the front of my Acerbis tank on. Crash tested twice.
Another ride yesterday, just sealed and unsealed roads to get the morning papers, and when I checked at home I have again used nearly all the front suspension travel up. Too soft springs.
I removed the ECU as well yesterday to send off to Rex at Fuel Torque.
The rivets on the muffler, they look to be stainless? When I de-core it I'd like to use the same rivets again. I haven't seen them before, any supplier hints/ideas? Thanks. EDIT: Bunnings.....
I saw that and appreciated it, but you probably have the correct tank too.
Finally got around to replacing my broken spoke.
The local bike shop could only get a stainless one, nipple on the original is aluminum.
Something about aluminium and stainless steel not having a whole lot of love for each other.....?
Galvanic corrosion. I bought a high end road bicycle in 2006 and they use steel spokes but aluminium nipples in the wheels to save weight. In time virtually all of the ones in the front wheel literally disintegrated and I replaced them all with stainless steel. No doubt the high stresses from a high tension narrow wheel exacerbated the problem.
the hole for the nipple is powdercoated, so i am not too worried about it.
After a good clean, i usually lube the spoke nipples and chian with some marine 5.56 crc, seems to work pretty good.
I own an aluminium tinnie with stainless fastners that sees a lot of saltwater, so i am aware of galvanic corrosion, grease, MS silicon or lanolin paste work pretty well to insulate the fastners and the aluminium.
old pic in Skippers Canyon.
An outback solution .
Good rains in Central Australia, heavy dirt and no one for miles.
