Road a good 450 miles today. Had a blast. The weather was perfect. Got home and discovered my new Vanson Jacket scratched the hell out of my tank. I've been in search of a carbon fiber tank protector. HELP!!!

Hello,

When will you have the carbon fiber tank cover available for the 2004 Kawasaki ZX10R?

No tank cover for this model, we are manufacturing a carbon fiber gas tank, we might do a tank protectors about 49.95 USD. Tank will be around 1000.00 USD.

thanks

Please keep me informed if or when you start making the tank protectors. I’m very surprised someone hasn’t jumped on this yet. I know of several zx10 owners that would prefer a carbon fiber tank protector over the tank bras.

I bought the Carbon Fiber Tank Protector from Mag Knight and I think its great.

If you take a little time and follow the install directions nothing looks better. It wraps all the way around the tank which is important if you ride canyons and are constantly straffing the tank with your leg as you flick it one way and then the next. I didn't want to glue anything to the tank and I had already ordered and tried the tank protector from Kawasaki which looks like shit!!! I took it back and for the same $100.00 went with the Mag Knight. One of the best and easiest upgrades I've done. Just take your time putting it on and you won't be disappointed.

Do you have any pics of the ART Tank Shield on the 10. I'v'e got a ding in my tank and was wondering how far up the shield goes. I'm hoping it will be high enough to cover the ding.

ART Carbon Fiber Tank Guard

I think ART makes the best Tank Guards but unfortunately, I dont believe they make one for our model. Ive been constantly checking to no end, So I gave up and got the MagKnight for now. If anyone knows if ART is going to make one for the ZX10R let us know maybe we can all get a group discount. :dontknow:
