Dude, we were all happy before the tank. This is just a bonus to our already blessed lives.

What are you using for a pump? You mentioned a "pump controller". Are you using a solenoid piston pump?

Hello Poolside - thank you

I use a sliding vane pump. To start it, you have to push a button, and than the programmed time begins to run and the pump is pumping till the time is finished (the underseat tank is empty)

tank support

Marcus: Is the tank supported on the bottom by the aftermarket passenger footpeg crossbar? Bruce

Hello Bruce,
the tank is fixed by both sides in the geometry of the frame and on the bottom by the footpeg crossbar - correct

You earned the praise. An 'automatic time out' for the pump is a great idea.

MARCUS: Thank you for clarifying this -- I will now need to contact the maker of the passenger peg assembly and see if he will build the cross bar without the passenger pegs! Bruce

Heh. Damn! Now I wish I hadn't sold the factory BMW passenger footpeg kit I had...since der factory makes the only one around.

Marcus- Any chance you'll be selling you tank without the fancy pump setup? I'm more interested in the tank with just a fuel line fitting at the bottom. Looks pretty great BTW. Let me know when you've tested one offroad!

Hi Marcus, some questions :

1) do you need to take off the saddle to fill the tank (seems yes) ?
2) have you already a Ver 2.0 prepared to avoid this ?
3) will the pump be inside or outside the tank (for maintenance or
replacement) ?
4) if the pump is 'time controlled', what happens if the tank is only
half filled, will the pump run some minutes pumping nothing ?

thank you,

If you read the thread you'll notice questions 1 and 2 have already been answered. (1) yes, (2) he's considering it.
