2005 slingshot Fuel Sizing

Postby pndLA » Mon Sep 06, 2004 11:23 am

anybody heard something about the sizing of the 05 fuels?
the 04 fuels are bigger than their name says (17= 17,8 and so on)

i have a 17 and a 13 from 04 and now ordered a 9 from 05 but my dealer didn´t have any information about the actual size! the 04 fuel 9 has 9,8sqm but what about the 05?

What is up with the new bags?

There was a whole debate in another post about the Diesel bags which some of us had seen but not explored. Can anyone give the rundown on these new Fuel bags?

They seem nicer for travel (look more like a normal bag) but how are they functionally for beach use, day trips, etc.? It sure is nice to be able to throw all your junk in one of the '04 bags (vest, harnass, pump, helmet, microwave oven, etc.)

The new bags look great.

Bags don't need to ba expandable as Fuel/Diesel users just don't need to keep the struts inflated when packing.

There is plenty of space all sorts of shot (not a microwave though)

On the top of the bag there is a pocket to store stuff like your bar and all sorts. The bag is also a good shape for fitting in the back of you car.

Can't believe we are talking about the bag when the bloody kite is gonna be awesome!
