FYI order 10 tanks from Clarke cost is $164.00 per tank !!

I'd try to get at least as much as I paid for the new Clarke tanks. I don't know how much more you could get than that unless someone is looking for a matching tank for their bike and you happen to have one. I wouldn't worry about caps or keys, they get whatever cap comes with the tank, then they can have a key made from the local locksmith to fit it.

Better off removing the locking mechanism on the cap. I did that with a 96 and an 08. no one stealing 1.6 gallons of fuel.

I'd like a white one with black or grey accents, not sure what years that would be. How much shipped to 20198?

I removed my lock mechanism as well, (long story why) But I never understood why lock it, since all a gas thief would need to do is pull the hose under the tank, nice and convenient like, they don't even need to bring their own hose. Almost as goofy as locking a screen door.

to me its more about people not putting stuff IN the tank.

You know, I never thought of that.
flat slide carbs are an (arguable) upgrade in the V-Max world. More than a few engines have been ruined as people threw coins in the velocity stacks that sit outside scoops.



people can be assholes...

Looking for a 1990 Blueish green tank to complete my bike or one that I can paint to match. Aloha

Post some pics! I'd be interested in a 1991 purple tank if you have it. Classic!
