Acerbis sahara tank spares

Post  appleseed on Wed Jan 07, 2015 7:33 pm

Hi,

Like a ... ( s--t head )I have lost one of the rubber bush things that sits between the bottom of the tank to the tank brace.

Does anyone have a spare one or know where I can get one or something similar?

Cheers

Andy

Annoyingly Acerbis US can get them but wont post them to the UK due to some company policy bs. tears

I had, but only got an answer when the guy in the US office forwarded my request to HQ, but am still waiting to see if they will send me the spares/accessory kit.

it is annoying that the guys in the US said it would be no hassle to get them (until I mentioned I was in the UK) but everyone else cant help/be bothered Neutral

yes its my fault for loosing it but...

It was less hassle getting genuine IT & YZ 490 spares when I lived in SA, which were probably more rare than XRR's in the UK.

for interest sake these DT tank rubber are almost perfect, just need to trim the lip off the narrow end to make it fit.

Also need a washer/sleeve arrangement but they should be easy to slap together.

As BuRP might say, a farmer/boer makes a plan naughty

nah you can keep them as there is no need to bride the few that are about over here.
also its pretty hard to get caught going over the speed limit here as they are not allowed to hide in the bush, ditches etc over here
