Suzuki GSX-R1100 1991 (M) NOS NLA Yoshimura fuel tank 44100-41C60-3EE
Suzuki 44100-41C60-3EE is a fuel tank for the GSX-R1100 model year 1991/M; it was superseded by 44900-41C00-3EE. It could fit other years too, see below regarding the colour and/or if it matches your bike. AFAIK, the respective colour combination is usually called Yoshimura colours (see the Wikipedia page for the GSX-R1100, and other sources).
NLA (No Longer Available) from Suzuki; GSX-R1100 (SACS) new fuel tanks are super rare to find in independent suppliers, and most colour combinations are unobtainium; price of these tanks when they were available reached almost 4 digits... Good used ones are not found cheap also (if found at all). About the item condition, etc.
NOS (New Old Stock), kept all these years in a Suzuki shop in my city, before reaching my hands. Item is in its original box and wrapping; box is undamaged, but - being old - expect some dirt and rougher zones. Suzuki stamp with part number has eroded long time ago (as usual in old NOS boxes), but fortunately someone marked the part number in the box; but please check if colours/decals/letterings (where applicable) match your bike.I naturally had to open the box for checking / photographing; box was already opened before by someone or not... After decades, the outer tape dries and looses adhesion, and so it just pops out of the box surface; I've seen +50 boxes this way; anyway, inside was untouched, i. The tank itself was sealed in its original wrapping - see pics. All tank's openings are still factory sealed , except the oddity of the lack of the usual sticker covering/sealing tank's "mouth"; my experience with these situations (not rare, someone in the factory forgot it) is that tank gets a little dustier inside; no other consequence. Item is 100% perfect flawless! Paint all shiny, no dents nor markings nor abrasion signs; note that my camera is a rather cheap one, and does not do justice to the nice Marble Italian Red (it seems almost pink in the pics). Note that some roughness may be found in the lower part of my NOS tanks (some more than others), which are probably due to transport vibration effects; no paint chips! Just abrasion signs; honestly, I think this is a non-issue. In the inside the tank is as good as it gets something is definitely not rotten in the state of Denmark! Note that fuel tanks used to leave the factory with some oil/protection brown liquid; in some spots it accumulates and seems rust at 1. Dont miss this deal if you have one of these splendid motorcycles (I think GSXR1100s are like the last generations of the classic aircooled Porsche 911: the last of a breed, with infinite resell potential in the future, if kept in pristine conditions and within the original looks). Grab a brand new fuel tank for spare, while you still can.
Are you restoring your GSXR to its former glory, using your decrepit tank? That should be a last resort solution only! Fighting the inevitable incrustations and corrosion inside requires special kits which are expensive e. Restom kits and needs a significant amount of time and effort to apply, with some uncertainty in the long run been there, done that; will the epoxy endure time, or will it eventually dissolves and nasty stuff goes to the carburetors? The perfect paint job, with 100% matching colours and 0 defects, is almost impossible to get (been there, done that, and I work with the best painter in my city).Can you still get the original Suzuki stickers? Or make a perfect replica of those? Unless, your old tank paint is OK and only the interior needs refurbishing? Because it takes only one drop of the acid of the "kits" to damage the paint, in no time (too easy to happen).. I know this is standard talk in all my fuel tank advertisements, but I know by experience the trouble of recovering old rusty tanks; I have a Restom kit to apply in 3 old tanks from my personal bikes under restoration, and I'm not looking forward to do the nasty job... Private sales Im not a company, just an enthusiast of Suzuki old bikes, having a significant stock of Suzuki NOS parts for late'80s and early'90s bikes. Original box shall be put inside another box 160 liter <=> 80x50x40 cm i.
