Gen 1 fuel tank
« on: 30 April 2017, 10:11:49 AM »
Hi all,


Following an accidental last Sunday i am i need of a new fuel tank, the original having a big dent in it. Is the tank specific to the 1000 or was it used on other models too? Hoping to get one from a scrappy/breakers so as many options as poss would be good. Also the plate that holds the footrest and gear lever has split in two, can this be welded or must it be replaced. If so same qn as for the tank...


I take it new tanks are going to be bloody expensive, any ideas how much??


Cheers


Tommo

Tank is specific to the the 2001 to 2005 Gen 1.
New tanks are in excess of £700
Check the breakers for the plate as you call it or put a wanted in the for sale section, someone on here might have one

Cheers for the replies folks, will look at eBay etc as soon as the bones have knitted back together, as 700 notes is a bit steep.
