    Default [Discussion] Custom/aftermarket fuel tank (20 to 33 litres)



    Hi,

    Read on the Internet that you can buy aftermarket fuel tank or extend the existing size. Have anyone tried or heard anybody doing it in SG? Can share your experience? Is this mod legit? Cheers.

    Can lah, petrol is lighter than water. 1 liter of water at room temperature at sea level roughly equals 1 kg. 33 liters is just additional 22 liters i.e. +22 kg at most. A pillion rider easily >50kg liao. Maybe go ask Ah Chong if he got lobang or knowledge.....cheers.

    Been using it for 5 years.

    Handing very little difference. Took only 1 day to get used to it.
    Only bad thing about the fuel tank is that if you change to a wide handle bar, the handle bars will hit the tank at full turn, unless you change the risers to a longer higher one to rise the handlebars higher clear of the fuel tank.

    Need to ask him if he still bringing in any more stock.
    The tank is I saw on his website, then he always say don't have stock, then I @#$%^ him during a BBQ ask him then put there for F#%K!!?!

    Then he said, got people fly aeroplane when they know of the $400++ price so now don't bring in, so a couple of us ask him to bring we buy then he bring in one.

    Haha, so that's why until now cannot reach him whether by HP or email. Agree quite ex and hard for him to justify bringing in just 1 at a time. Thanks alot for the info, hunter. Glad to know there are some hardcore phantom riders like you out there.

    the price speaks itself of its quality i suppose, equivalent to a Nolan helmet, will enquire dr. Ah koon if any.

    Ah Koon only got cover which clips onto the tank to make it look bigger. Not an actual tank. You can ask him if he can arrange to bring in some.

    You won't be able to find his website now because he forgot to renew his webby and it's taken down (for now)

    Here's a blog from one of the old Phantoms.

    No, it's just the cover to make it look big.

    The riser IS a higher one.

    Without it, the handle bars will scrape the Big tank during a full turn of the handle.

    Bro, where did you make that seat? And how much does it cost for the seat and the riser?

    Go Thailand buy one.

    But no need to go so far to buy. Can go ask Ah Koon order for you.
    LAB one is plastic one, can use also, but will melt if you use bigger light bulbs.

    Ah Cai, the holes for the crash bar on TA150 is same as TA200 or not?
    If same can use the TA200 one???
    Motorcyclist are the nicest people on the road, try not to kill us.

    I have the similar tall riser but with 1" pullback or forward, depending on which direction you mount. Used it on my ex-Phantom. Now for sale @$40.
