They look good! I agree, some thermal barrier might be a good idea.

Those are just too cool! (That's a good thing if American slang does not translate well.)

You have to provide better pictures of the frame you built, and details on the tanks themselves, please.

something about how i made them

Thanks.
Ok, i'll try to tell some building instructions. As you see my pics are not so clear, but hope you'll get the idea.
I have 3 mounts for the racket. I had LSL-crashbars where i got 2 and one to front of engine:

left


right


and third mount's place


These are all straight to engine, so they all vibrate the same.

I started making a frames around canisters just cutting and bending some L-shaped steel. Then i sighted them to their places and measured where i wanted to weld mounts (LSL-mounts).
left one here:


Now i could tighten canister frames to their places. I measured the cap beetween canister frames and cut some tube and welded upper and lower tube to canister frames to connect them as one unit (ofcourse i did all welding stuff out of bike). Then i measured where i could weld third mount. And again put this rack on it's place to bike. Now i could thinkabout where to put more tubes to make rack more rigid. Also i added 2 tubes to protect regulator. They are remowable, there's a threaded rod (M6) inside of stainless steel tube (i had to make something that shines...) and dome nuts.

Finally i welded strap holders and painted hole thing.

Something like that, i hope this clears how i made it.

I don't know who is manufacturer of these canisters, but they are made of steel and i think quite good quality. I have one tied to my SkiDoo, and i haven't noticed any leaks even i'm pretty often down and stuck into snow...

And i'm so sorry about my spelling

I did some minor adjustments to my Uly's timing and fueling, and it's like a whole new bike!

My timing was WAY advanced - when checking it in prep for my Texas trip this spring, the mark was way left of the hole when the CAS switched over. Maybe that's why I only was getting 33mpg!

I also backed up the 13.6-AFR-across-the-board dyno maps and flashed the Buell race maps onto it and it is way more well-behaved around town and seems to warm up faster and transition on and off throttle smoother.

Now I can run it from 1500-3000 really smoothly where before I used that as a transitional range, and the really super-strong engine braking I was getting from the advanced timing is much more relaxed... gotta re-learn how to ride it now!

their messaging system (and entire forum software) is shitty. try every couple of weeks and/or check your spam folder. PM's from users there go missing frequently.

Madstad

My new Madstad arrived today for my '06 Uly. I hope it will warm up enough this weekend to try it out.

If you run the Buell long enough, it will be warm enough

First hundred miles today....what a hoot this thing is.....very happy......I'm beginning to understand the passion for these beasties.....
That being said, I wanted to share what I did with my muffler to keep it from rotting off in a few months....maybe......lucky enough to only have 1400 miles on the bike, i took the can off, gave it a light sand blast(not much paint on it from factory, kinda understandable why they rust out) , cleaned and prepped, primed and two coats of POR15. Able to withsatnd 600 degrees after it cures,and i fugured after using and seeing it used in close proximity to high performance headers etc, that and I had some in the shed........ it should help......we'll see.....anyone else do anything like this? No sign of trouble after the hundred mile ride....no blisters etc.....
