    bit of a power increase I think, but don't hit any rocks or you'll have a major restriction :evil Ohh, and there 2000 euros.

    If anyone has any idea about tanks using stick exhausts I would love to here about them/ buy them immediately.

    Hope this helps.

    P.S. does anyone actually own a biek with these puppies on them, pics plz!!!

    Definetly not those hidious looking things!
    But an "A" for effort

    The way I ride. The low fuel warning light comes on around 140-150 miles. That is not enough fuel. Besides I love the looks of the full fledged 950 rally bikes!!

    I do long distance travel and some extra tank w/o any mods was missing on the market, so I decided to do one.
    It fits to 950 or 990 Adventure without ABS and the only mod you need to do, is cut the underseat box and link the underseat tank to the main tanks. It has petcock, so you can close it and keep it as a reserve.

    You fit there 5,3 liters of petrol.
