Would you be able to weigh the stock tank and the new Skinz tank (both empty) so we can see what the weight savings might be to go this route?First of 3 tanks to arrive. Going to be some very happy customers. Very impressed with the craftsmanship of this new tank. Can’t wait to get this sled built.
I believe the stock tank holds 11.2 gallons, so this is not much smaller. 9.5 gallons is probably the perfect size for most riders.I have talked to Jake at skinz through email. He told me 9.5 gallons of gas is what they are calling it. But holds slightly more. 1.5 quarts for the oil depending on how its filled.
As far as weight I never asked.
What was the Re-Read???So if the stock seat, bracket and all hardware weighs 7lbs 1.2oz and the new tank and seat are about 11 lb 10 oz. then this new setup is about 4.5 lbs heavier than stock . . . ? I am little surprised. Usually after spending $1800, one would see a weight savings rather than a gain. I guess the integrated oil tank would be very convenient and one would have a nice place for storage when the stock oil tank removed.
