Looks like some added volume in the section under the front of the seat. How is it to get the seat on? I see the rearmost corners got a little angle added too. Is that more volume added to the bottom edge of the tank? I'm excited!

Yup... trying to maximize the amount of fuel to the rear most of the bike. The front bevels were added to increase the strength and stiffness of the tank where it protects the radiator, and allow the bike to slide on its side when the bike goes down without damaging the tank.

That tank looks really good! The extra gallon(over the SM tank) will make it great!

So...to be a pest...are we looking at a Thanksgiving gift or possibly a Christmas time frame gift on these? Anxious riders await. It is looking really sweet Ken and I can confirm that I am done with my stock SE seat...what a freakin' rock that thing is. A few years ago when I rode it last it didn't even register on the matters scale but now...that seat has got to go. Send me some farkles...and a really nice larger fuel tank!

I'm just wondering aloud here but is the grey color shown on the plug a possibility for a final tank? I kinda dig it.

The hardest part will be choosing what color, but I'm interested.

As you know, we're expectedly running a bit behind. I spoke with the pattern shop last Friday and asked for a close ball-park for when we can be in plastic. He said 3 weeks is about right... so it looks like right around the Thanksgiving holiday.

On a positive note; I did finally get all the back-ordered KTM parts in stock, so we're ready to begin shipping shortly after getting the tanks molded...

I haven't been able to check on updates as I've been in Kansas for the holidays. I'll be back at my office Tuesday morning and reach out to the pattern shop. Trust me when I tell you that I'm even more anxious than each of you about getting my tank in hand. But at the same time I need to let the pattern experts do their job without me driving them nuts. I've been reaching out to them every Friday to see how things are coming along, but obviously missed this Friday for being out of town.

Naturally, if anyone feels uncomfortable with the wait, simple send me a PM and you'll have a 100% refund in 24 hours. I want everyone to feel comfortable with their per-purchase and know that their money is safe.
