Long range tanks for Husky TE610/630
« on: October 29, 2010, 07:26:52 am »
Hi all interested Husky owners,

Just had this response from Sally at Safari Fuel Tanks in Australia, so there's hope:


"Hi Hennie,

Thank you for your enquiry. We are making a long rang tank that will fit both the TE610 and TE630 fuel injected bikes. At the moment we are working out the mounting brackets. As soon as they are ready we will put them on the website.

Regards
Sally

Dunno, but I guess about 16l or so.Will have to wait and see.

Bulk order will definitely work :thumleft:

I got a tank for my SE from them. Great service. There is no import duty, you only have to pay vat.

A big part of the cost was the postage, so doing a bulk order and shipping which will take longer could bring the price down.

The SE tank cost me R7500.00 all in. That is VAT, bank charges, everything.

Hmm, quite interesting, but quite pricey.  Will watch this to see what happens

I doubt if the 610-630 would be that expensive  the 450-510te one only costs R3700 then import and Vat ---

The standard tank on the KTM 690 is under the seat; a whole different ball game.

True.
I thought it was so pricey due to the FI and fuel pump.

But lets hold thumbs  :thumleft:

LONG RANGE SAFARI TANK FOR HUSQVARNA 610-630

A new 25 litre Safari Tank for Husqvarna’s 610-630 range now allows riders to unleash the adventure potential of their bike.

Like all Safari Tanks products, the tank has been designed to keep the weight as low as possible, while at the same time retaining the original ergonomics of the bike.

The result is a tank that gives the rider a great feel on the bike, while opening up the potential of their steed for longer rides, without the worry of refueling at regular intervals.

The tank fits both the 610 and 630 models, and is now available from www.safaritanks.com.au, or by calling (03) 5729 5556.

Safari tanks are more expensive than Clarke & IMS tanks, but still a lot cheaper than OEM tanks

Looks very interesting.

Any estimates on the landed cost for a group order?
