DZC new product feeler......QR tank pins now available UPDATED

I am working on a new simple kit for a buddy on another board.....and figured I would see if anyone here would be interested. Its a quick release fuel tank kit. As with any of my products..anyone could do it themselves...but people like things done for them, so if I can provide something people will buy, instead of doing it themselves, I shall.

This is a kit that is in the market now..Sato Racing...$42.95.


This is the kit I am making.....when all is said and done...it should be between $10-15....I am trying to use all stainless parts, so rust is never an issue. We all know...SS is expensive. But, still cheaper than what is out there. I am working on way to connect the two pins...with a nylon coated lanyard.....that plate is nice, but too much work, and not needed, IMO.

Let me know what you guys think:

Hmmmm.....that's a f*cking good idea. But there needs to be something for the other side also or it defeats the purpose.

Yeah, well on mine anyway, the tank bolts to the subframe also. It would be great to have a "quick release" on one end but then I would have to bust out the ratchet anyway for the other end.

OK, I got ya..yeah, for right now, this is as far as I got. Even on my bike...I have to remove two side panel covers, and then the two bolts that hold the seat on as well. My track bike was easier...just remove the seat and the two bolts holding on the tank and it came up.....I could have used this kit with that bike. LOL

i've seen those done before, and i think there is already a guy that sells a cheaper kit like this. however if you could make a decent one I'd rather give my money to you, I DO WANT ONE, and it woudl be the same for my gixxer as your SV. I'd like to see pictures of the pins outside of the holes.

OK...I am getting actual supplies in today for making the kits. The ones I installed yesterday....I ghetto cut off bolt heads...and it looked ka ka cause my damn dremel cutting wheels kept breaking. When I get an actual kit together, I'll let everyone know...along with have better pics. :party-smiley:

im just not sure that it would take any less time to pull the two cotter pins and unthread the bolts....opposed to pulling out your 8mm socket and taking out the two bolts??

:confused:

No need to un-thread the bolts...not on the Suzuki anyway....I would have to check on other bikes.

Don't need to unthread the bolts, right? just pull the pins and lift the tank off the pegs.
Like I said to Adam, for the Zuuks..its just a matter of pullng the pins and lifting the tank. If the studs had to be un-threaded, it would defeat the quick release point.

Yeah...seems from most boards I am on..racer mods are what people want....like the brake kits and this tank thing. Easy to make, easy to sell...works for me. :D

Doug, y'know there is school of thought on tank risers on the front of SV's to enhance airflow for better engine breathing. Well this is just a thought to make your unit a 2-in-1 device that wouldn't stamp on 'chewys' tank riser mod idea and would mebbe give this DZC unit even more marketability.

Worth a thought? BB
yeah, I am very familiar with Chewy(Chris)...he is a great guy. I would not wanna take business away from him at all...so instead of making a two outta one kit..I would probably just make two kits..one for people without his tank spacers and one for those with out.
