Awesome job cyborg! I'm totally going to copy that tool tube mounting position as it will solve many problems for me, thanks for posting. I understand it's been covered here many times over, but I did manage to boil my gas on a 3000' technical climb last weekend and obviously need to do something about shielding the tank. The bike wouldn't start for 15 minutes and I could hear/feel the gas boiling... lots of pressure venting out of the tank. I ended up manually running the fan to help cool it off and it did start. It also has me a little worried about my fuel pump, I'm going to check and see if I have the old version or not.... my bike doesn't start immediately all the time, sometimes I have to turn the key on and off to get it to start while on the trail after I either kill the motor or turn the handlebar switch off. Hiking out from where I was late in the day would have been bad, I hate hiking in MC boots.... What's the latest greatest heat shield stuff to use? I remember reading somewhere about the precut berg specific blankets coming apart or something not good.... what's the cheapest product to help with the heat under there that's lasting for people? Also, here's my oil analysis I sent in with 1000 miles on it, 3800 miles on the bike at the time. I'll be sending in another sample soon as I put a lot of miles on the bike last weekend so we'll see how that one goes And a couple of photos for good measure.
