Hi,
My '89 FZR has got a rusted tank, that I tried to treat but unfortunately because of its shape, failed to succeed.
I am therefore looking for a replacement tank.
I can find a lot of different tanks, but not for 1989-1990 models...
Is anyone able to tell me if a 1991-1995 model would work?
Thanks,
Bets,
Nicolas

OK, without answer, I'll take my chance... As even 1990 models seem different to 1989 models...

I'll tell you eventually

Id say 89-90 are the same shape as they share same frame style but Ive not tried to swap them personally so cant be 100%

Where are you Nic?
I've still got my rusted '94 tank which you could offer up to see if fits?
Looking at the parts lists for both, airbox for early and later are different, so, although mounting may appear similar, they may actually be much different in shape underneath especially.

Hi BONLY1,

I think I am too far: I am in a lockdown area: Paris, France... Thanks for the offer; I found one on ebay in Germany (probably coming from a '90 model, according to the pictures there are differences), rust free, so if it fits I'll say so here (if it doesn't as well big grin ).

In any case, I'll put my remarks here for the others ;)

My suspicions are that 89-95 are all the same. The part numbers will simply relate to the different colour schemes. Well see 👍

Well, at least the 1990 model fits. It is different though!

There is an additional breather on the tank I purchased that does not exist on my old.




For fun, a picture of the inside of the old one, we can see I failed completely trying to treat the tank laugh laugh
