Well, it didn't sell at my exaggerated price (which I'm not really that sad about). I still haven't talked with the shipping company. If they won't ship it I'll just put it in storage. No harm getting a jump on the inspection.

Are you looking for just the reflector held by a couple of 6mm bolts? PM me your address and it's yours.

Jim.

I did. It would be nice to have a flat surface for the tankbag. But you need a welder who knows what he's doing, and the cap including the surrounding part of the tank it was in before, I think. (That's what I remember from a Harley-mod I did read about some years ago).

Yes, only way is to weld in from some other tank. Stock tank cap is very annoing when you need to find tank bag...

Mega Thanks Jeff! I had given up on that thread. It was originally posted in late October!

Moral of the story: watch or delete your for sale posts.

Is this to use a tank bag? if so then the Wolfman, Explorer Lite works great for me, it's a very popular tankbag, he also lists the larger, Explorer, for the TA. they both have a 'sloped' bottom profile. http://www.wolfmanluggage.com/index.html cheaper than modding the tank.


Explorer Lite in 2006.


a few weeks ago.

Gas Cap Modification

This is the modification I made to resolve the vent/gas cap/tank bag issue. I drilled a small hole in front of gas tank. Cross drilled ( along the length ) a bolt and fed it with a wire thru gas cap opening. I made sure to add a bit of sealing material at bolt head and tightened it from the outside. Bolt + sealant closed the hole and hole thru bolt serves as venting for tank. I ripped the vent nipple from original gas cap and sealed it with Bondo type material. It works for me.
Note: Obviously drain and dry gas tank before, Ahem... Drilling.

+1 on the Wolfman Explorer Lite

I picked one up after seeing Barry's on his TA. IMO, the price is quite low for the top quality you get . The bag is also expandable if you happen to be riding behind a armored car when that money bag falls out.

Sporttour.com has the best price with shipping that I've seen

Dave,

Are you using the universal mount model? I see they have a couple KLR kit options as well.
Great photo BTW!

cross bar bag ... any suggestions ?

While we have the topic of tank bags I thought i'd inquire about handlebar cross bar bags. Anybody use one that fits well without hindering steering etc ? Looking for a smallish one that i can use for registration / insurance cards etc.... maybe a tire guage etc.

tks.....Bryan

My Honda TA

Ok, since all you folks presented so many nice pictures, I will try to post my TA, too. (Did not work, sorry, so please check here:
http://virtulanguage.com/images/DSCF0591.JPG
http://virtulanguage.com/images/DSCF0621.JPG

It's a Japanese model, so due to license limitations only 400ccm. Model 1992, now roughly 50.000 kilometers down. No modifications, everything still the original (as was built) stuff, except for the Hepco and Becker paniers and frame.

Considering to get the handprotectors "locorider" is using http://motors.shop.ebay.com/merchant/aaoffroadaccessories because the original "flip-flops" are not that ideal.

Well, just this much for now, wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and all the best for 2009!!

Klaus
