    Awesome, looking forward. Even though my kit was only ondered over the weekend and should take 3 weeks to reach me, I'm busy trying to sort all the details.

    Did you use heat resistant bandage on the exhaust to protect the left tank?

    Daddyo- Is the fuel crossover line connected to the lower front lobes, then fed to the rear tank?

    Was it a fairly straightforward install?

    Looking sharp!

    Real Easy !!!
    Yes that is how the fuel lines work
    I may try to install a small vacuum fuel pump and a three way fuel valve ( Like the 690 rally bike)
    Then I can monitor where the fuel comes from and to help balance the bike.
    Then I also have a back up fuel pump on the bike.

    That Vacuum pump won't be much help as a back up, you need 50psi and that pump would be lucky to produce 3psi

    Confirmed,you would'nt get any use from a vaccum pump,as the main pump is in the rear tank,and operates at high(ish) pressure.
    you can turn off the front tank taps and just burn the rear fuel load first,or open both front taps and the fuel load goes down equally,tripling the reserve distance when the fuel light comes on.

    I did not know you needed 50 PSI, well it may only help drain the front tanks a little faster
    just one less thing to mess withfor now.
    I am shure I will find other things do.
