PostSubject: Rigid Gas Tank Needs Replacement   Thu Jun 18, 2009 7:21 am

Hi all. Arrow I recently had to have my gas tank replaced. It is supposed to be flexible, and instead was rigid. I understand from the dealership that this is quite serious, and could result in a gas explosion if you go down. cherry What I noticed was gas leakage when the bike went down once (I dropped it Embarassed). Anyway, this was a recall and there was no charge for the replacement.

I wanted to let everyone know, just in case.
