Defender wing water tanks

I'm looking replace my aluminium rear wing water tank (I used too much cleaning fluid and the water tastes bad - no flushing or cleaning will remove it).

Who makes these?

I'll compile a list as we go...

Fill it with a strong white vinegar solution and let it soak. Should take the taste out. Works for new plastic tanks too.

Also consider fitting an activated charcoal water filter to remove residual taste. Commonly used on boats.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
