Laura,
If this helps - Triumph part number for your tank is T2400538-JD and England has lots of stock. Oddly enough they have lots of stock on all of the RS tanks.....

I don't think your American dealers can see Englands stock unless they call so if they say they don't have any in Atlanta make sure they call the mothership.

Yes, they replaced it under a good will warranty claim. I had to pay the labor.

Good time to remind that K100-MG is a couple ounces of prevention.

I am still viewing the sample test I first mentioned aprox two months ago on a weekly basis and the K100 sample remains fresh while the others are gunky, not to mention that the nail is corroded in all but the K100 sample.

OnD,

I tried to find the thread you mention. I don't remember hearing of K100; would you provide a link to your earlier post?

I go through a tank fairly quickly, but a couple friends have several bikes and cars, so they'd be interested in your testing.

And- where did you buy it, if not from their site?

Ok, I would like to try this. What the website isn't telling me is how much goes into the tank at a time. Half an 8oz bottle? It is hard for me to make a decision on the quantity to buy without knowing.

Oh, I just googled K100-mg and it brought up the manufacturer's site.
