    Endurance Style Tank Cover.

    I started that idea after my 88 GSXR and the raised part of the tank. which turned out great.

    Im working on some other models and i think one of those will be great on a ZRX. problem is i dont have a ZRX tank to develop the fitment.
    Does anyone have a damaged (side or bottom mostly) with intact top part, that willing to part with it or track an Ok tank for a free tank cover? (ideal if the person is in Europe, since im in Greece)

    here is some examples on my part fitted on 88-91 750 and 89-92 1100.

    PM if you can help.

    Re: Endurance Style Tank Cover.

    Hello Giannis
    I am planning on making a carbon fuel tank myself, this set up would complete the style I am looking for..
    I have a "barnfind" zrx1100 in my shed with a good , non dented tank.
    Only problem is , I got it from a dealer who had it for 3 years in his shed , cause the guy he was fixing it for , never showed up for collecting..
    So the keys are gone lost...hence the fuel cap won't open...
    I have to go to a locksmid I think to get the fuel cap unlocked...
    also the shipment would be about 35 euro to Greece from Belgium(without inshurance..so with is even more..)
    And shorely I would want the tank back....
    tell me what you think..
    cheers
    Peter

    Hi Peter tks for it.. tank found so this coming week i will 3d design the part around it.

    i know that 1100 and 1200 tanks have different gas cap fitment so i have to be creative with the installation.

    ill keep you updated.

    Question..
    Will this be an bolt on part , meaning the second hole (for air escape) is there just for show , or will it be integrated in the tank , like on youre gsxr's
    with real second hole and a little uprising on the top off the tank and an air vent hose at the front?
    shorely the second option would be a hole remake off the top off the tank, and buyers would have to rebuild the tank...
    just curious...;-)
    cheers

    thats a stock GSXR tank. Covers would be bolt on no alternations to the tank required. Is just cosmetic!

    At times I hate this place... I will try to reset my memory tonight with Cuba Libre and hopefully will have forgotten in the morning that I saw and wanted this part.

    Very creative Giannis, looks great.
    Godspeed Jaco. You're missed down here mate.
