I have a first generation 70 degree subframe tank, on the bike for roughly 1 year and 10 months.

I am sure it is like any small niche market product, there will be a few flaws and to work through.

Yep, the 70 degee 'bergs are not as easy as most bikes to buy an IMS/Acerbis/Clark and slap on for extended fuel range.... but they are way cooler.

It has been kind of funny because I was worried about the fuel range when I sold my big tanked DRZ for the 570 Husaberg. Then I have found with having the 70 degree tank, is that every time a group get's together for a ride, we end up being at a station or a planned fuel stop before I am ever close to needing extra fuel because someone else has a stock tank and needs gas.
