    Default DK Custom Billet Tank Lifts - New Sizes & Finish - Q&A

    CNC Precision Cut Billet Tank Lift

    New Sizes ~ New Finish

    The New Style Billet Tanks Lifts are still the same shape, & covered by the same patent. But instead of being 3 pieces of steel, with 4 welds, they are precision cut from 6061 Billet Aluminum with a Stainless Steel Thread & Hardware.

    We've been making Tank Lift Kits for well over a decade now. Ours have been different than the various flat metal designs. They are purpose-made, matching the lines of the bike, and have a Lifetime Warranty.

    Over a million welds later, we've kept the same sleek design, while evolving the look & function further.

    We've also added a 1" option And a Machine Cut Finish, which can be polished to a Mirror, or Chrome-like, finish. Of course, the Gloss Black Powder Coat finish is still available too.

    We've been able to keep the price the same, while making a better looking, easier to install, & better fitting, design.

    We hope you like them, and they meet your needs. We'll be posting photos, Q&A and general info in this thread.

    What is a Tank Lift & Why Do I Need One?

    CLICK HERE FOR ARTICLE

    Excerpt from above link-

    Another misconception about lifting the tank is that it creates a volume of un-used space at the front of tank. On most fuel tanks, there is already an unused "bubble" of air due to the depth of the filler tube. Fuel cannot fill past this recessed filler tube.



    Notice that changing the angle of the tank does not affect fuel capacity. In Fact, on most models, you can squeeze in a little more.

    Yeah, I figured the Machine Cut Finish would look good when polished up....BUT, I had not idea how good til I put one on my bike. I was amazed...I'm not a big chrome guy, but those things polished really add a lot!

    We've used a dremel, also just a rag, but have found that a $4 polishing wheel from Harbor Freight, used on a drill or a "grinder" works fastest.

    For polish, we've used several different, slightly abrasive compounds. Something like this $4 kit gives you everything you need.

    Yeah, I'm doing the same thing for the Softail....shiny catch can and tank lift. Gonna ceramic coat them to...that way the shine will stay without having to hit it with chrome cleaner periodically.

    Amazing Product Review by Jason

    Great quality product and really helps improve the look of the bike (3in lift). Very straight forward install and in about 10 minutes complete from start to finish. Having a close to empty tank really helped too.

    On top of great quality product, I ordered several products on a Sunday night and received a message that the order was placed on hold early Monday morning. I was contacted about part of my order not being necessary and how to accomplish the same thing without their product. It was also pointed out that my discount (10%) was not applied either. Saving a total of $35 on my order, great customer service!

    Okay .. got my polishing kit from Harbor today, not gonna do the ceramic thing until I'm ready to do the truck, gotta buff it some, there are some pretty good swirl marks I need to buff out first. Then I'll open the new ceramic stuff ... about 1/8-1/4 of the first one turned to crystal and I threw it away ... I'm ready when the tank lift gets here ... ... Of course ... I'll be in the wind in the Nevada desert next week ... maybe longer
