LARGER FUEL TANK FOR FE450/550/650

HELLO FROM GUY AT GEE-BEE RACING !

I SPOKE WITH CLARKE MFG ON SOME A FUEL TANK FOR THE 04 AND LATER BERG'S

IF WE CAN GET SOME MEMBERS TO REQUEST A SOME TANKS , WE CAN GET THEM TO TOOL, GO TO CLARKEMFG.COM OR CALL 503-829-2156
ATT: JANICE

I INFORMED THEM I WOULD BE HAPPY TP PROVIDE THEM A BIKE FOR TOOLING, WE COULD GET FUEL TANKS IN 3.0 OPR 3.2 GALLON

I HAVE A 06 FE650 ON ORDER , AND I KNOW WE WOULD SEE MORE DESERT RACERS ON THESE BIKES WITH THE INCREASED FUEL CAP.

REGARDS GEE-BEE

hello guy

we have tried very, very hard to get numbers up to have some tanks made. clarke told me via e-maiul that he was too busy and i thinbk IMG want a minimum order of 500.

i think we've beaten that one to death and i'm sure that someone will come along behind me and give you a link to a huge thread we did on this subject.

thanks from everyone here though.

regards

LARGER FUEL TANK FOR FE450/550/650

WHEN I TALKED TO THEM THE SAID 200 TANKS , SURELY WE CAN START A GROUP BUY AND GO FROM THERE ........

I REALLY DONT THINK THAT CLARKE WOULD WANT THAT MANY...


I WOULD START A P.O. WITH THEM IF WE COULD GET SOME #'S

I WOULD TELEMARKET OTHER CLARKE/ HUSABERG DEALERS , I'AM SURE WE COULD GET DEALERS TO BUY AT LEAST TWO TANKS FOR THERE SHOWROOM'S

I WONT GIVE UP THIS EASY............

Clarke will make a tank for the 2005-2006 FSE450 but won't make one to fit all Husaberg's 2001-2005 as they all use the same tank. The 2000 tank is probably the same too except for the hideous blue color.
I don't get it

As Taffy said this has been tried already but good luck and count me in if you can pull it off.

Hi GEE-BEE I would want tank that size but a tank that sits like a basketball betwen your legs or crowding the radiator like stock tank its not
a tank that I would not want a tank like that The new 06 tank seems to be
better around radiator but from the looks of it be a little girthy it would be
nice if there where a mock up of the tank

I too am waiting on an 06 650. A big tank would be an excellent accessory for it or any berg. I will take one.

I called and their hours are 7:00am-3:00pm Pacific Standard Time (they are closed as of this posting time).

Lets blow up their phone system tomorrow with requests for a tank. This may be our big chance.

After you call post a blurb here.

With Boss'es help maybe we will finally get our tank

Okay,

I just called clarke and he didn't seem too sure about the 200 min order, but, I did let him know that I would want at lest one tank for my two Husaberg's.

I also called Mr. Bozarth and let him know the same. For most of all of my races I would still use my stock 2.4 tank as it will get me to any pit that I have experienced so far in my 24 years of desert racing. However, I would definitely want a 3 gallon for my trail rides which make up about 2/3 of my total riding miles, or perhaps a race in an unfamiliar area. I usually average about 35mpg on my trail rides which would give me a 105 mile range. And not much less during most races.

I think the extra volume could easily be had my making the shrouds carry gas like the Katoom's, if I'm not mistaken the Katooms are 3.4 which are 13L. So, if we could get an additional 2 litres that would be great
