Looking for guy that makes the fuel tank...
 
Hey everyone,

I'm the guy that makes the FP-HUS pumps. Most of our products revolve around Ducatis and fuel tanks are among our offerings. Making fuel tanks has been such a pain in the butt that we now got our own rotational molding machine.

I'd like to get in touch with him to see if we can get his molds and manufacture these tanks for him.

Roto molding is an old and simple process but I found out it's also easy to make tanks that leak. We have dialed in our process to attain great quality upon manufacture and then we also pressurize the tank and dunk it in water to ensure it doesn't leak.

Anyhow, let's talk again!

Thanks,
Chris

Are you talking about the 70 degree subtank? There should be a thread about it on this forum.

I'll be following this. That would be awesome if something were to work out.

Hi, there's a lot of support on the Husaberg social media for your keen-ness to bring back the subframe tank as a V4 (version 4). So have a look on facebook, Husaberg Appreciation Society and Husaberg 70 Degree Riders...might get a few in there to front up. I currently run the safari, but I've been loosely on the hunt for a V3 for a while now. Hope you can make it happen :bow::bow::occasion5::hathat1::hathat1:

I'd be interested in a couple of them if you can get them made.

+2 or +3 for me. Maybe more if the results are as good as v3 or better ��

Chris:
There is some old contact info at the end of this installation instructions, you can try it to track him down.
Good luck!

The 70* tanks loose a lot of volume due to the position of the breather. It needs to be more to the rear as there is quite an air pocket. I drilled a hole further rearward and screwed in a self tapper. It not only increases the capacity over standard but helps balance very quickly.
