70 degree aux. Fuel tank deliveries

Hi All,
I know the boys at 70 degree racing were having problems with the new injection molders. I was wondering if anyone has received one of the new tanks? I have had one one order since Early December. I am sure the wait will be well worth it. Does anyone have any information on this issue?

Thanks,
Willyweeman

No, no deliveries here either. Last email communication with John, about a month ago:

" Production began last week but the molder is having a venting issue and the scrap rate is way too high to continue this way. We met with the mold maker Monday and are currently trying his recommendations. I am at there mercy also. I appreciate your patience as there is not much I can do at this point but rely on my roto molder to work this out. This is a hugely complicated mold design.

Thanks

John Wiser"

After all you went through to get the tanks going the first time I'm sure you will get it all worked out. What changes are there for the new tanks, any other than the white color? Why the new moulders?

Further quote of previous email conversation with John.

"We cut up tanks and looked at the thinner portions and made the adjustments to correct. Also worked on the parting lines where the three different pieces of the mold come together to eliminate any inconsistency. Also we have made sure the inserts are totally covered on the inside with material and itís a consistent thickness around it. All tanks made now are pressure tested to 10 psi under water."

Looking good, let's be patient. I prefer a better more solid product.

Hi All,
I haven't heard anything recently about the 70 degree fuel tank deliveries.
Does anyone have an update?

Thanks

Re: 70 degree aux. Fuel tank deliveries

Two days ago I sent him an email, to see what is the status.

He is still working on it. It seems to be complex. I may just as well cancel my order because I need the tank before mid June. To be honest, I don't see my tank coming by that date...

I wasn't, but I have the feeling that now I am or should be.

Re: 70 degree aux. Fuel tank deliveries

I've had a 70-Degree tank on my bike for the last 18 months or so. It's a great product and I've had no issues what so ever.



However, I notice that KTM/Husaberg market a very similar item under #8120790404455.

Who makes this tank?
