It's not in my grubby little hands yet but soon hopefully.

So aux fuel tanks mounted on the sub frame are the deal I guess. Or something custom fabricated.

Tanks are the Achilles heel of the asymetrical framed ATKs. Stock tanks are almost impossible to find and larger ones never were produced. That leaves the Acerbis tripple mounted tank, which puts weigth on the steering, or beefing up the subframe. Bones over at the ATK site had a couple sweet builds, including a nice adventure ATK with fabbed pannier mounts and a sub tank.

Saw that build. Looks way cool. Can't wait to get the bike. I will miss the tiger but nothing changes if nothing changes.

Check in the vendors section, there are a few folks that make universal fairings.

Paioli help

I need some help with fork oil changing for 46 mm Paioli forks on my 2001 ATK 605.
The "Owner's Manual" shows the procedure for WP forks. The procedure is quite involved for those forks.
I need to know how much oil and how to determine proper level.

Thanks.

Just in case anyone else needs to know...Lee at ATK said Paiolis take 630cc of oil no measuring needed.

The ATK site is back up.

If anyone needs a set of Paioli forks and tripple clamps, I have a set for sale.

you say the nicest things rot box,,, and i havent even taken you out for dinner and a movie for the bribe.

hey bob if you go that direction you'll build a pretty dang cool bike. i was gonna do it but things change. the rally raid fairing, as well as a few others out there very similar are $$ for a w/e guy to ride around, as mentioned there are a couple universal type fairing in the vendor section that are affordable enough to play with, lucky for bob he gets a stock extra fuel tank,,, and a few other nice things.

i like the side number plate tanks, but i really think i would make a rack, or have one made that will drop off the subframe side to hold a rotopax replacing the number plate,when i was looking at this option i discovered you can really tuck it in tight at the same angle of the sub frame..

oh i still have so many ideas for this bike, but i'm ready to move on to more of an explore long distance rock hounding bike that i can ride with the wife two up once in a while.
