I am sure there are products that would coat the inside of the subframe to make it compatible with fuel and fuel tight.

Some inventive mind out there in the Husaberg world might come up with a bladder system that would work with fuel and you could stuff inside the subframe!!

I've been on pins and needles wanting to buy a new Husaberg, I've had four in the past, just need to commit and sell all my yamahas!
have a great ride

I have checked out the subframe potential.

No leaks from the fasteners, this is looking good. 4 litre capacity, 50% increase on standard, not bad.

Fuel is mainly to the left side, but given that it is carried low, should not be a problem with bike balance.

Wall thickness is approximately 3mm. This should be more than enough material for the vent fitting (plus sealing goo). Fitting the balance line, I would do similar to the fuel pump with a mounting plate/gasket goo and bolts.

Champion !!!!

12.5L all up, that will be good enough for Condo and Yilgarn etc

Great stuff to be able to do that and use the stock body work.

I reckon someone had this at the back of their minds with the design...................why else ?? and given its the same material as the tank !!

This sounds like great discovery and means this could be the perfect short rallye bike. Initially I thought this bike was too expensive and somthing that would be hard to get a new tank for, but might be tempted to start saving now.

I fully agree - it's not fair to ask you to drill a hole in your brand new bike... bring it by and I'll drill it for you...
