KTM Adventure 990 950 auxilliary underseat tank

I hate being nervous about the gas all the time so I build the auxilliary underseat tank:
- fits only to models WITHOUT ABS
- the capacity is 7,5 liters
- no mods into frame nor exhaust pipes needed
- mounting hardware, protection cover and heatshield included
- tested on four continents, over 50.000 km

That's actually not to badly priced for an extra 100+km of fuel.

I installed the cj designs fan today. I am intrigued about the flat screws.... mine seemed to have lots of clearance between the screws and the core. Should I be worried?

Also, whoever said they can fit that fan without removing the right tank and the glovebox must have the hands of a concert pianist. My fingers more closely resemble a regular penis.

That's what I did wrong. Shoulda use my penis......

I had these awesome domed head screws in my fan, which rubbed thru the radiator core. Now they are flat and can not stuff my new rad!

It have the rubber o-ring around the cap? I had one on an R6 once and I had problems with it sealing to tightly. If mine didn't vibrate off at 15,000 RPM yours shouldn't bouncing around off road.

The first one basically spun off and flew away, spent an hour looking for it
It was probablt my fault for not checking it

I like it better than stock, never was keen on using the key to get gas.
Would be any improvement to drill and tap a small screw to attach a cable so I don't drop it when fueling up. Been placing it in the center compartment which is easy enough.

Then I went for a ride!
