15:47 and 16:44 are essentially the same gearing

Ohhh sorry. I was going by the ratios of my TW. My bad. I am running 14:45 right now and it has been good for me. Would like to go a little higher but I dont really think its that necessary. Just annoying when trying to turn around in a tight spot but much better than stock.

I ended up staying stock 15:45. I went 16:45 but that was too high for some of the off road riding I was doing.

New chain and sprockets tomorrow. Going to see if I have enough chain adjustment for 14/48 and 14/42 (same as stock). Anybody tried this?

Edit: 14/42 will not work with a chain that fits 14/48 (116 links). However, 15/48 and 16/48 (same as stock) will. Gives lots of final gearing choices.

I've got two actually. Take a look at the fine print to the right of #ace0001. It mentions a part they don't make any more for the stock fuel filler neck. I also have #saf0001 for my safari tank.

Brad,
I ordered the filter for HUS01 filter 20 minutes before your reply....hoping it will fit the CA pump....as their site says it does fit both Berg and 690. Hope I am right

So, your other filters are tank neck filters....one for rear stock tank....and one for Safari????

I will phone you when I get closer to getting into tank for more updated fix info you referred to in a previous reply..... before Bobzilla comes up to ride the TWAT (The Western Adventure Trail....) to Bralorne.

Thanks a ton for your help for me and the rest of the Great Unwashed.

Heat gun, sort of. I left the QDs in place but I removed the in-tank filter and have only an external Bombardier filter. Used a piece of barbed air-line pipe in its place:

When I realised the ones that came with the filter weren't going to fit I walked around to the local garages (Fiat, Rover, Mercedes, Nissan/Renault and Volkswagen) non of them had ever seen these things before! I ended up using a clip from the Mercedes dealership which was as close to the right size as I could get. Came with a Mercedes price tag too
Those looking for clamps - I bought from these guys as I couldn't find local FI line clamps small enough locally. Nice to have threaded version instead of one and done oem.

I think you will be fine. I'm not sure what they mean by the hole is no longer there. The OEM pump must have changed somehow....

I think Profill is selling themselves short. IMO, and as mentioned before, covering the hole on the pump isn't the only benefit to their prefilter.

You are correct on the Tank Neck Filter statement.

The TWAT. I love it.

I guess I can now say that I have been on the TWAT and didn't even realize it. Man, that was a fun ride.....

I believe, not 100% positive though, that if you flip the blocks you can get enough adjustment to make it work.
