I've a S4 from 2002 with a metal tank, Can anyone tell me if all plastic tanks will fit my S4 apart from the pump, cap and hinge. I repaired mine 3 times now and again it's leaking.

1994 m600

Hi Guys !
hopefully someone can give me a answer to my question here ?
Can a later plastic tank be fitted to an early carbie M600 ?
I would assume if it does i could use the original mikuni vacuum fuel pump and remove everything but the fuel filter inside the tank ? leaving only outlets for fuel feed and drains as per the original metal tank setup, plus wiring in the fuel sender to the original wiring
i can gather from here that the hinge arrangement is different and that the seat is slightly different at the seat/tank interface but is it possible ?

I got my ol lady an M600 a little over a year ago and I have an S4RS for myself, she swears the S4 tank is huge compared to her 600. I'm not positive if there is a difference but she is. I'm too lazy to head to the shed to measure them. I'd think you could use the electric fuel pump if you tracked down a power source that is live when the bike is turned on. Rear running light comes to mind.

Not sure what the deal is with US models vs ROW (rest of world) but I thought I'd contribute some pics, as I read all pages thus far, and whilst the thread has some history, it's not applicable to the Aussie marketů. or so I found out.

I have a 2000 MS4. That's right. built oct 2000. It has a fuel tank with internal pump, filter both held in by spring c clamps which are welded to the tank bottom. The outlets at the bottom are both straight (fuel delivery and return) and bent (vent pipes) The hinge is quite short and close to the base of the tank at the rear. much closer than others I have seen.

It appears from the information supplied in previous posts, that this tank is indeed identical to the US models 2001-2002 MS4 and possibly other later F.I. models.

The interest in this issue sparked because of some dents in my tank, so I started to look for a new / used one in good condition. Pretty expensive buggers these tanks! Not easy to find either...

Anyway, someone asked for pics, so I'll try and upload them, but if unsuccessful I'll link them.

i read the whole thread but it got my head spinning.

i have an 06 s2r800 (plastic tank). i want to replace it with a metal one. which model tank should i hunt for? anyone with a part no.? i do understand the hinge will require some mod. also am i right in that any fuel injected tank will fit? or is there a metal tank that has the same fuel pump access method (from underneath as compared to from the gas cap) as the plastic tank?


ps. want to replace it to avoid the expansion issue
