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.

Patrue December 7th, 2017 07:48 AM

+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.

Good info. Did you plug the original breather hole or just keep it and T it in? Roughly how much farther rearward did you move it? I like your comment about faster equalization when filling. Some have mentioned it can be agonizingly slow to fill which is why I've yet to install my subframe tank (gen 3) I bought 3 years ago:o. Any issues with stressing the fuel pump with the subframe tank installed?

Breather still at original spot.

The biggest problem with the equalisation is the routing of the breather hose. I originally had it going down then back up to meet at the main tank breather. What I have done now is run the breather tube along the seat rail into the airbox and out further up where it runs along rad shroud. This helps equalise heaps quicker but not as quick as removing this screw. I have a hole in the rear plastics so I can access this screw. Now there is no hesitation in equalising and I gain some fuel.

Stressing fuel pump? Geez no.

Get that tank fitted.

Iíll get some pics up when I get back from my high country trip in a few days.

70 degree tank
 
Chris,
Count me in if you plan on building a Tao for the 70 degree crowd.

Thank you,
Rich

Pundy January 20th, 2018 05:17 AM

I want a tank too if you do a run of them. Thanks, Sam

NoClassic January 20th, 2018 10:24 AM

Sign me up as well if they can come in around the cost of the original 70 degree version.

Calv January 25th, 2018 02:46 PM

I'd love to get hold of a tank too! Hope your'e able to make it happen.
Cheers, Calv

Hi Chris, i plan to do a trip through central Aus in July and would be really keen for a sub frame tank for the trip.

smbcj April 27th, 2018 02:31 AM

I would be interested in one too. 👍

Zak May 6th, 2018 08:14 PM

Yes please
 
I'm close to pulling the trigger on a safari but would much rather have a subframe tank. I'll watch this for a while before I do anything.

Alan May 6th, 2018 08:32 PM

Why don’t some of you guys give converting the subframe into a tank a go? Nothing to loose. There has been recent discussion on the success of these. The latest 570 I have purchased has had the subframe converted successfully with no leaks
