Bigger tank???

I LOVE my stock 3.9 gallon tank because it weighs less!

After 3 gallons worth of twisties, I don't mind a gas stop if it keeps the bike lighter.

Some of us have to travel quite a bit to get to the twisties, so a bigger tank would be welcome. Do you have any info as to doing this. What modifications are necessary to fit, or can I buy a SMT tank and just swap it?? Any links to their experience is appreciated. Thanks.

Dont worry Mike, If I did this I would only keep 4 gal in the tank so I cant use the extra weight as a reason I cant keep up with you.lol

You need the following parts:
1x 6260805000077A SPOILER R/(S ORANGE
1x 6260805100077A SPOILER R/S ORANGE
1x 6200701304433 FUEL TANK CPL. 09
1x 50307014000 TANK ROLLER 12X26X12 '98
1x 62503009000 COLLAR BUSHING 9,5X18X19,8X1,5
1x 0025060306 HH COLLAR SCREW M6X30 TX30


The cheapest is to get a complete tank from a crashed bike and repaint it or wrap it before installation.

I got some links but it's german and you need to sign in before you can see some pictures

Hi George,
I'm glad Spark knows all the necessary parts.
I didn't know that so many would be necessary.
That sounds like a lot of extra dollars just to get one extra gallon!
Are you coming down to the Redoo next week?

Thanks for the info spark01..I will check it out......

Mike.
I knoiwits expensive just thought I would check it out, most of the time I can get by but sometimes in unfamiliar territory, I am hunting for a gas station, riding highway the 100 miles passes quick...not all..actially no twisties here...dont forget my other ride is a gsa with a 8.7 gal tank.lol If way too expensive might just look into best options in how to carry a gallon somewhere. I dont know if I can make the redoo next week but if I can which bike is better? i see you are leading a street ride. Is this more of a small bike dual sport ride or a normal gravel roads which anyone can come if you can handle the gravel? Btw I just ordered the g2 for the KTM.

Never mind

Never mind a big tank-get yourself the 16 tooth front sprocket!
Combine it with the G2 throttle!
Perfection

I currently own a KTM 690r enduro and love the orange kool-aid I just sold my 2002 Honda RC51 and was undecided between a Ducati Hypermotard and the 990 Supermoto R, but after a lot of online exploring I am going with the KTM despite there being a Ducati dealer about a mile from my work. The only question now is whether I go for a used 2010 or a new 2011. There is a used 2010 at a local dealer being offered for $11,900 mileage unknown at this point.
Will have to make a visit. Also seems like there are a number of new ones at discount at a number of dealers in the area. I guess its a very niche bike. Stay tuned......

Knybanjo is leading some dualsport gravel, dirt and probably mud.
I'm leading a twisty pavement-only ride on my 990.
I'm doing a top end job on my 690 and it's all apart,
and I just ordered everything from Steve today.
Your G2ergo will REALLY help in the twisties.
Where did you end up on your yokes, anyway?
If you are going to carry extra gas in something,
You might want to get the stock minirack that comes
on the 990 SM-T.
It fits right onto the SM-R, and I find it very handy.
I may have had to order the longer bolts with it, I don't remember.
I think you can see it in post #1.
X-factor carries extra gas in explosionproof metal
bottles of some sort on one of his Aprilias with a small tank.
He straps them to his fenders.
I suppose you could carry some of them in a tail pack.
I hope you make it down here.
There's plenty of camping space on Rick's Hill.

Hi Al,
I tried a 16T for a little while, then went back to stock.
To me, the 16T felt better riding steep gravel downhills,
and slow gravel roads in general I guess, but that's all.
Since I use that bike MOSTLY for paved roads,
I'll take the stock 17T.
Mike

I have not adjusted yokes yet because last weekend I planned riding/adjusting but ended up doing a 50 mile off road mountain bike race which left me in no shape to to do much.lol. I did order the smt rack and bolts but they had to order from KTM so may take a while to get. Most of the time I wont need the extra gas, just looking for an option for the multi day exporing new area twisties rides. I will try to find out what X-factor uses. I am not going to make it down there this weekend due to work, but I will be bringing the KTM back down there someday, maybe set up a supermoto weekend in the spring. Have fun, looks like good weather for the weekend.

G2 - is it a box like a power commander?

I dont have it yet but from what I read it is just a tube that fits over the throttle and will control the throttle to engine response. According to the website starting out you will turn the throttle more for the same response which will give you more control, then once past a certain point the throttle response the same as always.

I kind of felt that the G2 took a little of the snap out of the throttle response,whilst removing the jerkyness completely.Now with the 16t front sprocket moving the torque back down the rev range just a little the bike has never felt better.
Instant big fat torque without the jerkyness!
Top speed will never be an issue in Colombia

Give it a go

Considering the cost of the G2 and the 16t sprocket they must be the most cost effective way to effect the perfomance of your bike in a positive way.
Even if you don,t like the 16t you aren,t losing much by trying it out!
