***Tank exterior is an unpaintable raw finish with minor imperfections and texturing, similar to off-road "Baja" style fuel tanks. In 2013, we replaced the top of the mold with a fully buffed polish billet part to provide the best possible finish on the most visible surface of the tank.
Enthusiasts love the Ducati Monster for its simple elegance, the great number of accessories available, and the passionate rider community. California Cycleworks developed the Monster Track Tank to provide an alternative appearance with improved ergonomics. Using the same material as offroad "Baja" tanks also makes the MTT43 a price-conscious replacement for expensive OEM fuel tanks.
The MTT43 has a sportbike shape with modern styling, similar to the Supersport and Streetfighter Ducati models which is a welcomed and familiar look for riders wanting to modify or upgrade their Monster's appearance. The improved ergonomics allow the everyday rider to comfortably hang off in corners, while at the same time offering racers and track riders the much-improved ability to push the Monster's limits and provide a better overall track experience.
The underside of the fuel tank is designed to work on Monsters with or without airbox modifications. The top of the MTT43 tank is the same height as the original Monster fuel tank. Its leveled surface is comfortable to lay on for reduced rider wind drag at high speeds. The MTT43 is also designed with a slimmer profile than the original tank, allowing more room between the fuel tank and the rider's hands. Each fuel tank has a unique serial number and is covered by the California Cycleworks Lifetime Replacement Warranty.
|In Depth||MTT43 Fuel Tank Specifications:
Available colors: red and black
Colors by request: natural (makes fuel level visible)
Usable capacity: 3.9 US gallons (14.8 liters), allowing for 150 miles between fueling. Total capacity: 4.3 gallons.

Lifetime replacement warranty (limited to the tank itself), including damage resulting from improper installation.
Constructed with PEX (cross-linked polyethylene), considered by the plastics industry as the choice material for rotationally molded fuel cells. PEX is dimensionally stable, so the fuel tank will retain its original shape without warping or distortion. The PEX used in our fuel tanks is uniformly compounded to ensure consistent cross-linking (best-of-industry practice).
Meets NHSTA and DOT standards governing fuel cell fill rates.
