EDURANCE 24LTR FUEL TANK

HI ALL
I have an idea to have made some 24ltr
fuel tanks , the benefit of this is the obvious
extra range provided .
I have a HARRIS fuel tank on my bike and
its good for 150 miles between stops .
The idea is to have a 6mm stainless steel cell
made and encase it in a 2 piece bonded
carbon fibre shell .
It would be an exploded version of a standard
tank , ie : it would look intrinsically like the
standard one just larger ! .
I`m still in the early stages of doing this and am
looking for feedback and a show of hands if
anyone is interested in purchasing one .
The stainless cell will be pressure tested and
the fuel tap will be retained in the standard position .
As I said earlier , I have a Harris tank on my
road bike , I run a Fireblade front end on it
but I also used the tank on my standard bike
and had no issues with clearance on either bike .

Hey Yeti, sounds interesting...any projection on cost?
Around town I'm getting approx 150 km from 14L usable tank volume (sucks but sure is fun)! Highway performance is somewhat better but nothing to brag about. It would be nice to have longer "legs" as Canada is kinda big and open in spots ��

How much do you want for your Harris Tank? LOL

The Ram Air kit is of interest although the bigger tank isn't.

Cost would be the major factor for me.

Do any of your bikes have the thermo housing modified or repositioned?

FWIW, (forum member) Wyldryce tried on a few occasions to sell his Harris tank on this forum in the past.....

A standard size (16 L) or (preferably) a copy of the post-2001 tank sold outside NA (ie. 19 L) in carbon (and lighter than stock) would be of possible interest to me..... am not interested in a "bulbous" 24L version, however........

Could not state interest without knowing price in advance.

YETI, can you provide some pictures of the process and the end result with and without the Ram air? Obviously cost, maybe interested.

kai ju is an unknown quantity at this point
First Gen VFR800 Fuel Tank. 5.5 gallons, or thereabouts.
Not quite a bolt on, but your cheapest option.

see post 51 for details here: https://www.superhawkforum.com/forum...tr-7221/page5/
