2 × 9 litre tanks, roto molded fuel cells using cross link material (which is now required for the American market)
The tanks have been designed using an aluminium insert unique in design which basically eliminates the chance for the insert to ever spin in the tank
3 x Larger diameter inserts have been used for each of the rear bracket mounts in the tank reducing the likelihood of flex and sheer load on the bolts
OEM tank rubbers are used to secure the tanks to the frame and aluminium collars
Each tank has 3 fixing/mounting points, one fixed and the other two are floating, the same as rallye design, this allows the tanks to expand and contract without putting undue force on the mounting system.
The front right tank now houses the fuel pump and sender unit. Removing it from the rear fuel cell allows for the rear tank to be gravity fed to the front, equalizing the fuel as it is used and also allowing for easier and quicker trail side access for maintenance.
(An example of this is, if a filter or fuel pump was to fail trail side the conventional method to access it would be to remove the pannier racks, muffler/header pipe junction, rear mud flap, seat and battery and lower tank bolt and swing up the tank to gain access to the fuel pump and sender unit, in turn losing the majority of your valuable fuel.
The HARDkit system is simply to lay the bike on its side, remove two bolts for the bash plate, two bolts for the tank protectors and eight bolts and the pump and sender are out, the fuel simply drains to the rear and opposite side tanks).
The tanks have plastic tank protectors in the lower corners for added protection
The tank graphics are applied after the cooking process and will not bubble or peel off like stickers.
The billet filler necks are another important part fitted as when the plastic expands and contracts the fuel caps become very tight and awkward to remove and re fit, the aluminium eliminates this, they are fitted with 6 x stainless steel bolts and an oring to seal correctly.
