  • 22 ltr fuel tank Royal Enfield Classic 350 in Bangalore

    Hello guys,

    I own a RE Classic 350 (Silver). I have seen a couple of classics with a 22ltr fuel tank and simply loved the looks.

    Can anyone tell me where I can find a tank for the bike in Bangalore.

    Also a competent guy who can do the tinkering and painting to match the factory color exactly.

    Also i need a rough idea as to what the final cost might be.

    This is the first time i'm going for a modification on the bullet, so haven't got much idea about the best places to get the work done or the cost that might be invlolve.

    Thanks a lot in advance guys, looking forward to your replies.

    Advice is a form of nostalgia.
    Dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than it's worth.

      How about getting it from Royal Enfield Zone - Fuel Tanks for Royal Enfield Bullet, Electra, Machismo, Thunderbird, Standard :: Royal Enfield Zone, New Delhi, India OR Royal Motor Cycle

        Thanks a lot. But i'm a little apprehensive about ordering a tank online. Want to see the tank make sure that it can be fitted on C3 without any issues. because i've heard that not all tanks will fit on C3 and might need altering before it can be fitted.

        Hence i'm looking for some store or person in b'lore who can help me out.

        One more question. Will the painting guys be able to match the shade to the factory Silver perfectly??

            I think he meant Classic 350.

              +1 to this. Royalenfieldzone is reputed and people from Chennai have been delivered with right products for their mods. I have seen a 22 litre tank installed on a C5 ordered from Royalenfieldzone without any problem. Infact I got a quote for a 22ltr tank with meter plates on tank for my C5 for my plan(not finalized). I would suggest you to talk to them before placing your order about your requirement mentioning your bike model. Hardly it will go wrong.All the best for your mod, and do post the pic once done.

                I'll talk to Royalenfieldzone and lets see how it goes also some of my friends suggested i go for a 18 ltr rather than a 22 ltr, since the latter might look a little too huge on the C3. Has anyone here have any idea which might be better? pics, if available, are most welcome

                  Google for pics from Madbull club, you can see most people having 22 lts tank

                    There wont be much noticable difference between 18 and 22 if thats what you are concerned about. And for the pics as suggested by Argee, check for Madbulls, and the person I mentioned in my previous post is from the same group.Hope this helps.

                      The reason I understand is because of the weight shift due to the fuel; it's not just the weight, but, the shift of fuel from one end to another (when full obviously) when braking, acceleration will make uncomfortable + wavery. To overcome this, the 22 lts tank (I guess) has 2 baffles between them to minimize the flow of fuel from one chamber to another & cause less wavey.
