Re: 70 degree aux. Fuel tank deliveries

It is made by 70 degree racing for Husaberg.. one of the reasons it is hard to find a 70 degree tank right now.. that and the above mentioned new rotomold issues.

Any updates on the availability of the new aux fuel tanks. ??

....I guess when they start there will be a bit of a back order.

Check the 70* Racing .com site for updates............

The mold is now at the new molder for initial molding test runs, I hope to hear back in the next couple of days on progress.

And yes, I have a lot of pending orders to fill once they get the production going!

Re: 70 degree aux. Fuel tank deliveries

Hi Dale, sent an email to your sales@etc site, no reply yet - hoping you are on here then.

basically from Australia so

Q:
I would like to know how much they are? Edit: Ooops, I see $449US at bottom of homepage.

Q:
Payment (I assume PayPal or credit card from Australia).

Q:
Am I able to order and pay to be put on a list, or do I wait until you're happy with the delivery/quality etc.

Q:
And one last question I just thought of. Are they grey, clear or black? (Edit: I see the orig photo shows grey)

Q:
And I'm adding in a rhetorical question. How the hell did you manage to get the shape right? It's a bit complicated with notches, wriggly bits & stuff than an XR tank for instance!!! Did you muck around with plasticine since you left pre-school or something?

Please wait to order.

They are now going to be the natural color/white.

I talked with the molder yesterday.

They are making parts and they look good. He expected to send some to his companies QC today or tomorrow for leak testing etc......

If all goes well I should have one for inspection in my hands by Monday or Tuesday of next week. Fingers crossed!

Re: 70 degree aux. Fuel tank deliveries

Update: 07-25-12

I spoke with the new molder this morning and am going to visit the facility this Friday for a close up inspection of the parts........

They have been able to run parts successfully with an existing XLPE material, and they are going to do some test runs with a material that has been unavailable until just lately as the patent has just expired. This recently available XLPE material has better flow characteristics well suited to the complex form of the subframe tank.

They have also QC'd the parts with the existing material and the tests were good. Here's a couple of pic's.

I'll post again after my meeting on Friday!!

Re: 70 degree aux. Fuel tank deliveries

Great Dale,

Did I see two slits for a strap near the end of the seat?

That would be great.
