Rear tank trim

Post by petef » Tue Jun 02, 2015 2:41 pm

Hi Guys,

Here is a question that has probably been asked many times before regarding tank trim strips, but when I did a search for the part number, 83-3180, found nothing.
I just have one seam on the rear of my tank, as per the part number above, but can't find one anywhere. Is anyone making these or know of a plastic chrome strip that might be a reasonable alternative?

Found this posting from captain in 2013 but he wasn't going to make any more, sadly!

There are a couple of US based suppliers both indicating stock of the rear trim:

Klempf's British Parts
$30.00 New?

British Only Motorcycles and Parts
$49.61 New, $29.77 Used

Hi Steve,

Nice one! I'm Houston at the moment (I live in the UK) & just ordered a tank strip from Klempf's. It was $52! Another piece of the jigsaw completed. Many thanks for your help.

Cheers,

Pete

Now its fing $63.50!! Gone up 20% in two an a half years! This was in spite of me telling them that its for the UK market and B all demand for them in the US, they still wouldn't budge on the price :( . Bugger the Euromillions, I'm just going to buy NOS...

Anyway, had a result :grin: , see this post.
