Reviews for Abrew Weld on Gas Tank Extensions - AF120
My shop machinist has years of welding experience and we had a hard time with this mostly due to fitment. The kit came with no instructions whatsoever. Where it goes is obvious but you keep wondering if your missing something like "what is that sharp point at the end of one of the bottom pieces". Also, we had to machine new metal pieces to make it fit properly, the ones supplies left too much of a gap. There are also no recommendations for seat fitment, so you're left on yoru own figuring out a seat whose nose would completement the curve of the tank. Other companies will recommend a seat (their own or others). The metal is not protected, so it started rusting a couple of weeks after sitting on the shelf awaiting assembly. The design is also poor, the ends of the tank flare out, so they are poking into your inner thighs constantly and force you to spread your legs much more than naturally comfortable. Not recommended for short riders. Daddy (very) long legs may be OK with that. We tried to manipulate how we weld it, to tuck the ends in, to no avail. I googled the manufacturer to find a number so I can get advice and recommendations. Nowhere to be found. I hope they see this and contact me. Bill (201) 294 0068 Two positive things: I have to give credit to the look, the long stretch is awesome, better looking than most stretched tanks The prices is low (although for 6 pieces of cheap metal, I wonder what the cost is like). WIth a couple of hundreds and some sweat equity, you have a $1,200 - $1,500 tank. To me downsides are too big to ignore or to recommend this tank extension. Sorry AbrewI wouldn't recommend this item to a friend.
