I bought a targa tank cover off ebay but I don't see instructions on how to put it on. It is for a Honda F3 and is the velcro type. There is a black, rubber strap that is at the front of the tank cover going from on end to the other.

I do not know where that goes? It seems like it would go under the gas tank but I guess that would mean I would need to take off my tank to put it on?

If anyone has ever had one of these and knows how to put it on, I would appreciate your help.

I dont have tank cover..but this site might give u some insite on them.. Many tank covers do need to go under the gas tank though, becuz they are not generally something that you would take on and off very often. so once its on, people generally leave them on.

On my 1990 CBR, the front of the gas tank is held down with two 8mm bolts. The rear of the tank hinges. The front is supported in the up position with a strut on the left hand side. You don't have to disconnect any wires or hoses. If yours doesn't have a strut, have someone hold it up (don't do it with a full tank) while you attach the straps together. Then bolt it down.

my kat is just the opposite..2 bolts holding down the rear, and the front is hinged..either way, its not hard at all to pull it up enough to put on the cover. u should be fine. :)

Lay the cover on the tank. Pull the strap forward and roll it under the lip of the tank. I had to remove the bolts from the upper fairing to the gas tank to roll the strap. then attach rear of cover

How many of you like your tank bra? I got it on but it doesn't seem to fit as too nicely. You can still see the velcro sliders because I can't stretch the top enought.

Pros/Cons?

Anyone have pics of thiers?

I bought a cheap one (30.00) from Dennis Kirk and took it apart and used it as a template to sew a better one. I went to Jo Ann Fabrics and bought a thicker vinyl and better "shirt quality" flannel and made one myself. It fits better and is of higher quality than any I've seen...Maybe I should start takin' orders...?
