1969 oil tanks diferences

Post by madsundaysurvivor »

Someome really knows the differences between these two oil tanks?:
82-8625 b44vs 1969
82-8950 b25 1969
the brackets for oddie, of course. But what about the rest?
filler neck angle, length, shape, chassis mounts ...

Only difference could be neck height as without the fibreglass cover it can be lower as it was in 70 when all models were without fibreglass.

Thanks,
I have seen many b44vs 69, with short filler tube, the same of the 1970 oil tank, maybe just for look or functionality?

It cures the problem of the filler cap hitting the inner thigh if you straddle the bike to kick, whether BSA had this in mind is anyone's guess.

Kommando is once again correct.
The long neck will dig into your thigh if you like to ride with your knees in ( the proper way )
I rode a B40 GA for 15 years that has the long neck on it and had a perminent bruise from the filler cap
