That is a bunch of interesting angles on the tank. Are you going to put water (or fuel) in it and check volume? Not sure I would go through the effort unless it was larger than stock.

No, I won't put anything in it except for some race gas  grin
But I'll know how much approx that it will hold.

Jason hand lapped all mounting surfaces on the cases and performed all of KX Guru Racing case mods to improve lubrication...  cool
Just need a trip through the vapor blaster and oven and they will be ready for assembly..

Hit the Bormi web site and after mining their site found the gas tank gallery.

They make a lot of nice parts! The KX and CR tanks don't really look bigger to me but they sure are pretty.

I'm not sure I could do an aluminum tank.  That first dent would be hard to take.

James Stewart DID NOT invent the scrub!!..JoJo

Dents/punctures aren't really a big deal with aluminum/metal tanks...a skilled metal worker can smooth dents out like new. There's a guy out on Cape Cod that specializes in metal motorcycle tank repair, his work is flawless...you think you're just being handed a brand new tank.

One thing I noticed about this picture is the bend at the front top. It looks like introduced stress and a good place for a crack to form at the weld. I hope that is not the case.

By Oscar Cota:

So our Sunny Garcia kx500 project has come to an successful end! Unfortunately for now I can't post too many photos of the bike as Racer X has first dibs on showing off the final product! Look for the video and magazine to come out in the next couple of months. Sunny and the entire magazine staff, including former Supercross pro racer and test rider David Pingree, we're absolutely stunned and Beyond impressed with our latest creation! David Pingree made multiple comments each time he came off the track such as " there is absolutely zero vibration, this thing corners and holds a line like you couldn't believe, this thing is totally on par with new bikes, this is the most in-depth build we have ever had!" I don't want to give away too many more quotes, you will just have to wait for the magazine to come out LOL! This build was definitely a nerve-wracking experience. I thought the Sean Collier build was stressful, but this one was definitely one for the books! I cannot stress just how much I appreciated and how invaluable the assistance and support from Alex Ward was. There were many small details and some major setbacks towards the end of this build that Alex pulled a miracle off for us. KX Guru Racing would not be what it is and would be lost without Alex that is for sure! In the end, the entire magazine staff was thrilled and told us the bike completely exceeded any expectation they had for this build! Sunny definitely has the most unique and best kx500 on this planet! Click on each picture to read the caption.

I have no idea... I'm just the flunky hanging onto Oscar's shirt tails  grin
Likely both..
After the magazine comes out I'll post up some pics if I'm allowed to.
