    You need to run a relay for the high beam so you don't get feedback from the low beam.
    Triumph in their wisdom have made it so the low beam turns off when you go to high.
    This causes a problem in doing a plug & play type of install.
    The reason being the HID is only one element & stays on all the time
    High beam only actuates the solenoid shield, this needs to be run thru a relay.

    I can do a wiring diagram if you need.

    I've run HV extensions from the headlight assy, from this mob:http://brightlightautoparts.com/HIDParts.html

    I used the 1000mm ext with the standard Kit HV cable

    Externally there's nothing showing, the bike looks stock.

    So, I made some 25mm bar risers, TIGed up some pannier racks, beefy mount for the LED bar, got a Starcom1 with an 80ch UHF off eBay, unifilter 'pre-filter', Aldi tank bag, Barkbusters and some other camping goodies.

    Just got to do an oil change and I'm off next week....


    Where are we again?

    fuel pump and all electrics etc go on the new tank in 1 piece

    from memory the float has a seperate mount in the tank but its impossible to fuck it up. bracket provided

    safari are aware the fuel guage is not calibrated. word was they were colaborating on a software fix with triumph about a year ago but have heard nothing more

    the guage says full for the first 200km or so. digital fuel computer range to empty is wrong too. well, more wrong than usual.

    i use km/ litre and trip dist for idea on range

    Your safari tank should have come with a bracket and some bolts for the stock sender to mount into.

    Once you pull out the fuel pump from the bottom of the tank you should be able to work it out.

    Just be careful routing the wiring when you put it back together, so the fuel sender arm doesn't get tangled up with it.

    Bloody computer with my Filezilla program is playing up, so I can't give better pics than the iPhone Tapatalk photos.
    Leaving tommorrow for St. George, Hungerford, Cameron Corner, Innaminka, Birdsville, maybe Poeppel Corner, Windorah, Roma, Canarvon Gorge, Cracow, Home.
    Get it sorted when I'm back.

    Pete, I thought the sender goes with the base plate/fuel pump jibby-jar? Take pics, I can't afford a Safari tank until some time next year, it will be god to know what needs getting done.

    BTW, don't need to see a video on removing the tank, got it down to 5 mins now!:lol3
