Don't really understand the price? My 2002 vrod had the same small tank (3.7) and aftermarket maker sold plastic tank replacements (5.6) for $395! Why so expensive for the vmax?

My guess to that would be that there are Forty-eleven-hunderd V-Rods and a very large aftermarket for them.

These tanks are hand made and there is a very small market for them. Then you have to remember that they are coming from Germany and you have to convert Euro to US$. Today's rate of exchange is $1 = €0.68.

I would pass.

Just a thought to throw in to the mix and I know some will not like it, But the Faux cover could be rebuilt/remodelled to take the extra fuel for those long trips, a simple fuel tank tap, a gravity feed line into the standard tank.

A quick edit of one of my photos I came up with this type of change.

That is one of the options on the Gen 1 Vmax so it should be possible. The one pictured below is from Exactrep in the UK and adds 1.3 gallons.

Nice one Badger, that is the type of thing I was hinting towards. They could be made cheaper than, and would be a lot easier to install than the 5.6 Gallon replacement tank. Cheers for the info.

Pokey.

I have been keeping an eye on this site waiting for that tank. They are quoting July for it to be ready. Sooner the better.
