Any chance of a vest for the new Honda CRF250L. These are going to be very popular bikes.

Things have been moving here at Tank Vest. We've got some cool stuff coming out soon including new lines of Tank Vests and other products.

One of which is a line of Tank Vest shirts. We're unofficially accepting orders for these by phone now. Please allow 5-7 days to ship. Small to XXL for $25 plus shipping and XXL and larger will be $30 plus shipping. We have several colors available. Right now, we've started with desert with black lettering and black with white lettering.

Custom colors available upon request. My daughter has already taken advantage of this. She wants pink and purple shirts. LOL



The above is the back of the shirt. Below is the front.



And a sample of the black shirt front...

I've had quite a few requests for a video showing the stability of the tank vest on rougher terrain. I found a section of really bad road and had my buddy video me going over it to show how stable the tank vest is. I'm looking for a better or worse ,depending on your point of view, section of trail or road to do a more encompassing video.

The video is short and shows in real time, half speed and 1/8 speed.

IMS KLR650 10G tankvest status?

Checked the website, but not clear if the IMS 10g tankvest is ready for the KLR650 yet?

Thx!

Would also love one for my Triumph Tiger 955i. If you want one for a pattern, just shout, and I'll ship it off to you, during our winter. Sure that might be worth a little discount... :)

Hey Old Baldy, give me a call when you can, we'll see what we can set up.

I apologize for not being here much lately. Our production guy had to have emergency surgery a few weeks back and is having a very difficult recovery. He's back at work and slowly getting back on track. Please bear with us as this has been a very difficult time for us. If you're so inclined, please pray for a fast recovery for Allan.

Thanks!

Mike

Mike - hope Allan recovers soon ... but as per everyone else got a couple of questions about model availability.

Will the std pre 2007 Tank Vest fit the KLR650 C models with the smaller tanks?

Also are you planning one for the KLR250 ?

And do you need a UK/Euro distributor ? ;)

Any news?

I've got a DR with an IMS tank and lust for these badly.

I know adding more lines in production is tough. Do you have plans for XR650L tank vest yet?
