Fuel Pump

I pick my WR250R up on Tuesday and my question is about switching out tanks with the drop down wings. What mod is done to the fuel pump to get to that fuel in the lower R/L wings of the bigger desert tanks, because pics of the fuel pump show it will only draw from mid point? Tank suggestions welcome.

Animal indeed!

We ended up sticking mostly to pavement, but I was on the lookout for you guys. I don't think we ever crossed paths though. We did go through Hanksville and had lunch at Blondies, then ended up in Moab on Tues. night (where it rained somemore), and headed home on Wed.

Capitol Reef is pretty darn awesome when it's raining!

The Safari tank comes with a secondary fuel pump built into the tank. You will need to run a T into your vacuum line to the airbox door to activate it. Tank comes with all the parts.

I have mine mounted like a set of panniers with a 2 gallon fuel container on one side and the tool kit mounted on the other. I use the L-Shaped brackets bolted to my rear rack (on a Husky TE610) with the locking hardware. Only issue I find with the tool kit is it is not water proof so it fills up with water and rusts any tools you may have in there. I drilled a hole in the bottom to let water drain out instead of getting trapped in there. It would be nice if they made a water proof version (and a smaller 1 gallon size).
