Robinsons are listing the same on their website......




....... for £746.45


Still pretty salty, but not as salty as the one from the Fens!

You would get 10% off Robinsons as well, to make it cheaper still...!

Don't these tanks need repainting - read on the Australian Katana FB page that they are not finished in 13L ?

I read that too; they're another colour because Suzuki can't get 13L either.
It's faster to break than to repair.

I still have the original mangled fuel tank from when my brother crashed my 1000 when he owned it, circa 1983. It is stored in the box that the replacement tank came in. The part number on the box is 44100-49301-13L.

Nothing screams poor workmanship quite like wrinkles in your duct tape.

YD8 is the colour code for Sonic Silver used on the Final Edition models.

Best source of info is Alexandre’s Katana France website

http://katana.france.pagesperso-orange.fr/1100CM3.html

There is a cheaper tank on WeEvil Bay....

I hope whoever is bidding on it knows what they are doing :D :D

...and what is the little valve for in front of the filler?
