Got it sorted I think, left the bottom o-rings out of the heads. That what happens when two people are doing the work and the assembler (me) didn't look at the diagram properly. Hopefully all fixed now.

Just need to put it back together.

Just some more pics

Just some more quick and dirty iPhone pics from the shed.

Still need to work out the best way to run the lines. Should have it all done by the tomorrow. The bike engine has just been rebuilt and has only been started a couple of times, not ridden yet.





















I hopefully post some pics taken with a real camera tomorrow, along with a write up on the install etc.

You'd be surprised how long it took to get that colour right.

Damn that tank set up came out amazing.... Lucky cats downunder. I'd be raiding the stockpile.
Love the Pete Meoni paint job by the way.

More tanks and more photos!!!

Those look stellar dude!

Is that the stock rear rack or did you have to modify it in anyway? And can you still hook your Gobi's up?

Also I noticed your seat latch cables dangeling. How are you gonna hook that up?

Nope - the rack has been modified where it fits to the bike but is still in the stock position. Mounts to the same places under the rear plate but at front mounts to the underside of the pillion pegs. (Take out the black plastic plugs and its tapped ready to go ) Yes they still carry the gobis and have about 10-15mm clearance from the tanks.
The seat latch is a work in progress and atm Im just leaving it between the inside tank and the storage box. Just pull on the lug when I want seat off action. Id like to do something like the SE tho..

It is the standard HB one drilled to suit the KTM mounts. I had it on the bike before mounting the tanks so the standard one should fit also. And yes still hook the Gobis up.

Not sure what I will do there just yet. Maybe leave it like that. That is what Pete has done.

I was thinking of putting a longer wire on and attaching it to a lever mounted near the shock resorvoir (sorta like the SE has).

I tested out the tanks yesterday and I'm happy with the the way they work and how the bike handles with them full. I didn't measure the capacity but at a guess...... 12 - 14 ltrs?

Not sure what to do about luggage racks and the seat lock yet but I'll come up with something later. Might add some white paint to the front of the bike to make them blend in a bit better.

12 -14 ......... I guess that's the compromise for being able to fit under your panniers. I got 21 out of mine.

I think it's a good compromise as most people load their bikes up for travel............ I particularly like the fuel level window on ciedema painted tanks. I might try to incorporate one on my new front tank build. I wish I had done that on my rear tanks.

They look great Pete. A beautiful professional finish. The reward of taking the time to make a good mold. Congratulations Pete ..... well done! ............ Me and the sandman have a long way to go to get a finish as good as that............. I love fiberglass work ......
