Received a response back from Safari Tanks today. You do need to tap a hole into the side of the factory tank to mount the fuel connector between the two tanks. The Safari tank feeds the factory tanks so no moving the of the fuel pump assembly is needed. Trying to decide if a tapped hole in my factory tank is worth it to have over 4 more gallons available. Message from Safari Tanks:

To enable the connection of the Safari tank set to the standard fuel system on the TR650, the instructions will state that a 13mm hole will need to be drilled into the standard tank to enable connection of the fuel line from the Safari tank set. This would mean if you were to remove the Safari tanks and fuel lines, an appropriate rubber plug or equivalent would need to be used to seal the fuel inlet hole. I have attached a pic to help explain the setup.

I would be worried about that tube and mount being damaged when the bike is laid over.
That would probably end your ride.

Ordered a Terra Safari tank today. The likelyhood of that fitting being ripped out or damaged seems small to me. I reckon there would be many other weaknesses to consider (me being one of them).

another thing to remvove when you change the oil

might want to put a self sealing quick connect fuel lines so you can just leave the line there

TCI Rack



Very happy with the rack. It fit and seems strong enough.

Excellent customer service from TCI

New Terra on its way

well just put down a deposit for the Terra, non available in SA or Husqvarna Australia, so now have to wait the two weeks for delivery from a bike shop interstate.

Quirky, what colour safari tank are you getting and can you post pics

"Translucent" would be the colour. I figure no fuel gauge so may as well see the damn fuel level. Can post pics when I get the tank.

Lots of little jobs ahead setting this little workhorse up.

When you get yours, check the clutch cable out it rubs on the sharp edges of the radiator and on the stupid guide. I used some clear 1/2" hose as another sheath and then also used "P" clamp that snugs the clear hose just enough, instead of the stupid guide.

Cheers
