Status quo

Short update - where we are:

- measured real capacity is 7+ liters
- there are two version of filler developed:
a/ uderseat as you see on the pix so far
b/ behind the seat - in the area of luggage rack (you can choose which one you preffer)
- the form was justified and on Fri I will take it to manufacturer
- by the end of May I will have first 10 pieces
- but not enough kilometers tested - so still hesitating, when to start the sales... It is possible, I will start looking for first few testers (still has to pay some money for the "testing" pieces - I need to cover some costs) in few weeks and if all goes well I will start the sales...


cheers

I am available for "testing" if you need volunteers. If not, I'm looking to be an early customer.

Very interested in testing for you, I want one anyway and if that means I get it a bit cheaper



Just to check, it will work with stock exhausts right?

Hopefully everyone knows I was joking! Man I do look forward to seeing how this works. My Dad just got an F800gs that gets a bajillion MPG so I don't want him laughing at me every time I have to stop for fuel when we ride together!

He will still laugh at you when you will end your pockets when you stop at fuel stations
