Photos of your bike resulted in me spending a small fortune on mine....

Hopefully some epoxy will fix the crack ?

Fun looking road in the vid

Been scoping out all the rear 'rally' tank possibilities for my 05 950 for ages & turns out theres a fella in my hometown of Perth (pete640) who can build em & what a great job he does as well, so needless to say, a fine pair now grace the flanks of my big girl. Supplied & painted in metallic KTM orange, acerbis caps, all fittings & fuel lines & fitted up effotlessly, brilliant job Pete.
FYI, the headers are GPR, & the fibre muffler is off a 09 GSXR 1000.

Theres your free plug Pete, looking forward to the Great Central in Sept.

Hey those look fantastic! Very cool.

I wonder if your buddy could incorporate handles into them, like the 690 Rallye tanks? That's one thing I really miss are the side grab handles. Trying to lift the rear up for anything is a pain.

Nice job man!

No can do larry. The 9X0 bike is just too heavy. It would have to incorporated into the subframe like the rallye bikes and the appropriate seat mod done.

As for the 690s the handles are alu and the lugs that hold them in will pull out if you put too much pressure on them. I found out - unfortunately!!

Thanks Pete. Great to know you tried and I understand the weight constraints. I guess the solution is to cut the seat away and do a subframe mounted grab handle. I've not done that yet, but will when I get time.

Btw, unrelated, I used a Super Enduro Magura lever as my seat latch pull. It's tucked away under the rear fender and works great. I know you mentioned possibly doing the same and I wanted to report that its the ticket.

REALLY nice job on your tanks man. Top notch.
