Thankyou

this isnt what the fellow in Australia said and showed in his photos.

Care to comment on that Simon?

Thanks - I dont want to be busting your balls, but at this price, I would also expect perfection

Hello

Thanks Simon

Good luck with the tanks when you do finally get them up and going..

My guess is the only way ya'll are gonna hear more about this is to try to contact the guy/manufacturer directly in South Africa. These posts are over a year old and are the last of the guys 14 posts on this site....

Let it die or put up some new info...

I was yesterday at Pro Action, Johannesburg and saw these. At frst I was impressed till I heard the price. I cannot believe that you pay R11k for these. There must be an cheaper way either in making these out of other material. This mean R1375 to carry 1Lt fuel.... This is not on. I agree it is a good product and looks nice and part of the bike, but then buying other ways is cost effective.

Maybe if it is cheaper people will buy this and you have more products out there.....

Its carbon fibre and hand made of course its expensive. But pepole spend 300$ on a glass clutch cover with no function apart from the bling factor so why not?

I have a set on my 2007 990s. I have been running them for the past two years with only minor venting issues. I think it was because I was over filling them. I have been leaving the neck empty (as stated by Adv. Overtime) without problems. They are one of the highest quality products I have purchased thus far. My Brother has the same bike and runs the rear tank in place of the left side exhaust can. He has had multiple failures on the plastic and is now on his third tank...no thanks! In addition, I didn't want to sacrifice the sweet note of the dual cans
