I know you've been working on the wind shield, but any more progress on the tank

I had hard time to find the CNC/"milling house" to do the aluminium form acceptable costs and timing. Now I have found one and in two weeks the form should be ready. Than "only" adding the brackets around the form and production trial can start. Estimated in 4 - 5 weeks...

x-fingers pls :-)

If you want to make the biggest underseat tray ever, make the lower tank part in carbon/kevlar/fiber and sell as that. That would be some nice storage for them who don磘 need/want the tank system. You will doubble the customer base....and i seriously need the space. I磛e got RC8 wiring fooking everywhere.

Looking forward for the windscreen.

Regards from Denmark

Nice, looking forward for the finished tank.

Another tank to produce and sell would be a underseat tank in plastic for the 690. A lot of swedish 690 riders build and use a aluminiumunderseat tank for the 690. The tank replaces the airbox and you use another airfiler. There are no buy and bolt on tank of this sort on the market today.
