Have you thought about flipping the motor over and learning to shift upside down on the right.

I was thinking along the same lines as Aussie Steve with the jack shaft idea, but I've got nothin for the tank and intake issues.

Rotating the motor back would centralize the mass, drop the output shaft, make room for the ktm tanks, and make room for the intakes, but then you are into the rear shock mount and the wide head would interfer with your ability to ride standing up.

Your in a tough place with that frame/motor combo.

Riding a motorcycle is fun. Riding a supermoto is inexplicable.
