Tank Pad Kanguro X3

Post by Firingonone »

The coloured tank pad above the front of the seat has always been missing from my bike and appears unobtainable (part no.32.03.39). I would be grateful if an X3 owner could give me a close up photo/diagram with some dimentions of the base plate so I can make one to go with the new seat cover when it arrives.
Thanks

I have two, one from a X2 and a X3. Both have cracked but you can use them to make a replica from stainless sheet material so at least they won't break when your motorcycle gear grabs hold of one of the corners :mrgreen:

Shall I make a cardboard template with measurements and post it here?

The pad on my Coguaro is 195 x 45mm which looks similar.
If it were me in the first instance I would cut a bit of ABS and form the bends with a bit of heat. My current sheet of is 2mm thick, maybe a bit thicker would be better. You could get it covered to match. Lots of ABS sheet on eBay.Just an idea?

A template is just what I need. Would be very grateful if you could make up one and put it on forum.

is this enough info?
drawing was a pain, when I removed the fabric the whole thing fell apart... 80-ies plastic is not very durable :wink:
when in doublt about the shape use the right side of the piture and mirror half of it (across the fold) to the left... right side is most accurate
