KTM 990 /950 adventure carbon fuel tanks

These tanks are manufactured from carbon composite fuel resistant materials they hold a extra 8 litres of fuel giving you approximately 150km extra fuel range (fully loaded).They look amazing and have good functionality. Each tank has its own fuel tap and can be individually isolated or repaired in an event of an accident. The tanks are all interlinked with your existing tanks and so are the breather system. They can also be used to hold water or whiskey!

Custom colours are available on request (to match your existing paintwork)
These tanks come in DIY form (original replacement part), very easy to install, all piping and fitting instructions are supplied.


We are however working on a different option made from fibreglass and later in plastic (fully painted)

Carbon Fuel Tank 950 /990 Adventure/s Price: ZAR (South African Rands)10000.00 (a set).

Hi Sinaman..

I very much like what I see here mate.. I`m looking for something like this for a trip around Australia in late August.. Carbon would be great but the boss wouldn`t approve of the outlay..

When are you expecting to have the fibre glass models up and running and then how far are the plastic tanks following that?? Any indication of prices for these as well please in Aus dollars preferably..

cheers mate.. Nev.

Never thought I'd be glad that I don't own a KTM. These are simply too beautiful for me to pass up, if I did own a 950. Excellent work, you are to be commended.

We have never had any delamination problems the only problem we have encounted in the pass was the clearcoat chipping due to stones and what ever flying objects but however we have reinforced the outer carbon skins with kevlar as so to prevent any puntures caused by such flying objects.

Thankyou
