I agree with the best solution of having dual petcocks, but given the options Clarke 4.7g with single, or larger than I wanted Acerbis with duals, I went the Clarke route. Can't really go wrong...

Seat Cover

Seat cover isn't too bad. For $20 and a few bucks to the sewing gal it was worth trying out. On trips longer 200mi. I still get sore, but not as bad; it definately helps some.
With the seat removed,...

Awesome.Thanks for the info.

I know what you mean regarding no "off" position on the petcock. I may splurge $$ early and get the Acerbis tank package. Then, dive into the carb issues. I tend to backfire a bit when getting off...

Thanks!

Thanks for the input. I'll keep my eye out for a pumper carb.
The bike came with a White Bros. e series exhaust...anything else I should be aware of...especially if I get a pumper on there?
