    Evil,
    First off, where or how do we petition UPS to your delivery person!
    Second, I like your sproket/chain-clutch cyl guard. Who makes it?

    Ok boys n´ Girls.
    The big bosses in Mattighofen doesn´t get it that so many of us wants our own Rally replica, so better do it your self...:wink:

    Front tanks and alot of bits and pieces ordered from Austria, Fairing, navtower and skidplate ordered from Cptn. Berglund, Roadbook and framesupport for navtower from Raid Designs. :evil

    To be able to switch between tanks I want an external fuelpump. After a tip from Dakar rider Thomas Berglund I found one.
    Comes from a Suzuki quad, lt 450-r modelyear -06-09.
    Very expensive boys n´girls, but hopefully worth it.

    Exhaust need to be built. I used 50mm (2") plastic tubes used for plumbing to make a template.
    My dear father in law (whom allso drives a rally car...he understands me...) will weld it for me later.

    That idea of using polly pipe for your exhaust mock up is briliant.

    I looked at one of these fuel pumps for my project on the advice of safari tanks, as run in dakar on some bikes. Only thing I have found is that it has 2 returns. 1 to the petcock switch and another to the top of the tank (how its used on the quad). How are you planning on running the lines? Will you run a similar fuel line system to the quad?

    Front and rear fueltank to Rally petcock, to pump to regulator.
    Will connect return from fuelregulator to the big outlet on pump. It says "fuel vapor" on the parts diagram, but being in contact with Thomas Berlgund and thats the way he routed it.

    Very nice bike and great build can't wait to see some pics of it done.
    Are the front tanks off a 9XX? if so I thought that they might fit and keep the weight lower.
    Also I hate that they ship the led tail light In Europe (looks great) and we get some huge stupid one in North America.
    Good luck with the rest

    ok. Is the fuel line on the left running from the rear tank and of the 2 remaining ports is one an inlet from the front tank and the other an output to the quad fuel pump?

    If possible can you take some detail shots of the fuel lines? eg. what plugs into where?

    cheers. nice build, kinda jealous, although I figure not the first person.

    Yes, left port to (from) rear tank, upper right to front tanks, lower right to fuelpump.
    Make me able to switch between front, rear or both tanks.
    More pics will come after weekend.

    Now thats big mony well spend :) Looks great!

    Why dont you use a small car fuel pump? Many of them are external and usually cheap. Any known problems with that?
