Quick question... what are the thoughts on how the new subframe gas tank will impact handling etc... if at all. Just curious.

Thanks
i had the little extra tank for the older Husabergs, ok, a little smaller with 2.5 liter, but you dont notice that one at all. I think you'll notice a big lunch with a large coke more

As far as the handling goes, I would think that by carrying the extra 6 pounds basically under the seat, in the middle of the bike, one would notice it less than if it was added to the main tank area.

Any time one adds weight to the bike it will affect the sags, so the only thing I can think of that "might" need to be done, and this is all down to personal preference, is how one sets their sag. I usually set my rear sag with a half tank of fuel to split the difference between full fuel and low fuel. But since it's only going to be a gallon which is 6 pounds, about the same as a full hydration system, I can't see it making a whole lot of difference.

I figured it wouldn't make much difference with the handling, but was just curious. I'll take the extra fuel regardless.

Looking forward to it. Have a nice New Year.

Do you have an idea of when your website will be up so we can place preorders?

I also want to thank you for working on a project like this. In this short of a timeframe, I am impressed!

Hi! Will you ship overseas as well? I live in Germany and I'm in the need of two subframe tanks. We're doing roadbooktrips and "funrallies" over here and a Gallon or maybe a little more is just what the bikes need.

Build the tank! It will be a success! If you have prototypes available by February I'd be happy to buy two of them for testriding in the sahrara (we're booked for a trip in March).

HI All,

Well here's the latest update..............

I just got home from a meeting with the company that is creating the mold for us and here is what I have found out.

First, we are still expecting a February customer shipping date.

Second, I received the adapter plate for the fuel pump holder that will allow the connection of the sub frame tank to the main tank. I will be fitting this piece to my bike with a plug in it for the time being for testing.

Third, I was un clear of how the mold process works. The 3D scan has been made and the next thing that will happen is that a model will be made. We met with the guy today who builds the models. Once the model is made of the original, we make our changes, IE adding the fuel tap, fill spout etc to the model. The model is then copied using fiberglass, so that a sand cast can be made to make the mold at the foundry.

So, the next step is for the molding company to get a hold of me once the model is built probably the 3rd or 4th week of January. I'll be taking my bike over there for a day to assure proper fitment of the fuel tap and the fill spout to make sure everything is going to work out as planned. Once that is done, the aforementioned process will take place and we will produce a couple of tanks for test fit, and proper operation, once confirmed everything is good we will start production.

I will post some pics in the next couple of days of the adapter plate for everyone to see.

Oh, almost forgot, we are also looking at creating a little more room for the stock wiring harness where it passes by the shock reservoir to reduce chaffing there.

Thanks for your patience and continued support!!!
