Tank #3 with coating

New tank - so smooth, so beautiful
Dual layer 3M coating at fuel pump area

After 7 weeks of wait, tank #3 has finally retuned to me from Hattar Motosports. They have a 3rd-party contractor working on all in-coming tank coating job, and Hattar offers life time warranty against any gas tank deformation due to the defect of coating. This is the second time I use their service - for whatever possible opportunity, I do prefer support the local business; especially dealing with a new tank with high shipping cost.

This is the first time I have have chance to inspect what kind of work been done. The tank as dual layer of 3M silver metallic color coating, and it acts as a barrier between the plastic tank and gasoline. $235 with life time warranty - not too bad. Before the deer killed my Streetfighter, the coated tank was working perfectly fine. I will have Ace Motosports to do the installation along with the new clutch. I will post update soon. Stay tune.

Deer vs Streetfighter... and no one wins

Yip, that's me 'resting' in the middle of the road with a dead deer in front of me. Still remember first thing came to my mind after the impact was "shit, my wife going to be pissed!!!"

I guess I will ride my Classic a lot more for the next few months. Will bring update on the insurance process and out-come on my SF-S blog. Here is the link of details... and yes, I am one lucky dog.
