Fuel tank covers

Recommended Posts

I saw a white tank cover for an xr400 on ebay. i have been looking forever to get a black tank cover, but cant find anyone who makes them. Anybody know where to get tank covers for the 400's? Anybody that can make them?

Are they a plastic shell or a sticker or something? I want to turn my tank red, but don't want to buy a new tank.

The one i saw on ebay was alot like a seat cover, some kind of strechy fabric. I think it is still listed, just search xr tank cover. I would figure it would be pretty cheap for a company to sell these, and it seems everyone wants to change the color of bikes but not shell out money for new tanks. I keep looking but still cant find a manufacturer.

just a thought but if dirt gets inbetween the fabric and tank its gonna act like sand paper and scratch the tank. if ur tank is in bad condition then ingnore the previous sentence.

I couldn't find the one where you said it would be but I found this one. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Honda-XR400-96-98-White-Tank-Cover_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQcategoryZ35589QQitemZ2489549889QQrdZ1 The package it was in said it was made by CEET technologies. I hate having a white tank. The stickers fell off, and where my knees rub on the tank it looks terd brown.

sorry to butt in but we in singapore lace our stock tanks w/synthetic/faux leather which is waterproof if we cannot cough out $$$ for an acerbis or clarke

colours come in black/white/grey/red etc.

downside is that we'll have to leave the tank in a cut-throat shop that does it.

costs in singapore dollars S$100.00+ i think (not too sure as i got mine used & laced)

some are innovative enough to go to a furniture scrapyard to cut out pieces of sofa fabric large enough for the application.glue like Dunlop etc applies easily too

hope this helps

cheers

Well my tank is definitely beat up so i am not worried about scratching it. I would not even care about the color but i use it to ride to work, and would not mind it looking a little nicer. In fact if i had a cover i would most likely take it off when trailriding.

Just curious, do you have a pick of any of these leather laced tanks? I would love to see one.
