protection for stones flying from the wheel...
fit in the subframe - positiv
I did a similar thing for a 950se but made it out of carbon fibre and its a tool box not a fuel tank.
Made it so it has a lid that seals down on top and prevents te tools and sores getting filled with mud and sand.
looks awesome, but I do beleive the sticker tape mounts won't survive the 10,000km trip I have planned
Am hanging for an end result and price.
These need to transfer the rider's weight on the top of the tank. The tank support should be quite hefty.
This is looking really good, and I am waiting patiently for the result and pricing.......money burning a hole in my pocket!
Coming together quite nicely. I think you've got a winner here if it tests out in use. Interested in how it will be mounted, hardware, etc..
I'd run a common vent line from the three high spots to eliminate any air pockets and max out volume. Then put a check valve inline on the supply line so height relative to the main tank is irrelevant, that's how the Neduro tanks work.
Tagged for SERIOUS interest... This would be MUCH nicer than a RotoPax and still keep the weight down. I'll keep an eye out for pricing and availability as my bike will be in the build stage in less than a month!
maybe it doesn't need to fill through its own filler cup. So it is not essential to remove the seat for filling up?
Could you explain more please? I did not get it... So how would you fill the tank?
I'm thinking gravity fill from stock tanks if the underseat tank is lower than the stock fillers.
Theoretically possible, but the underseat would fill so slowly- one would have to fill the main tanks, then wait for it to backfill the underseat, then repeat. Unless there was a LARGE hose connecting them.
The connecting hose could be larger than the OR hoses. A breather could let air escape. The left tank being higher when parked could be the one feeding the underseat tank.
Hi Rade, i really think the filling without taking of the seat is mandatory. As the tank will be used for long distance travels mostly with lot of luggage it might be strapped above the seat. To refill these 8liters and having to take of the luggage might be a huge pita.
Nevertheless: It really looks promising, keep on!
just my 2cents
Short update - where we are:
- measured real capacity is 7+ liters
- there are two version of filler developed:
a/ uderseat as you see on the pix so far
b/ behind the seat - in the area of luggage rack (you can choose which one you preffer)
- the form was justified and on Fri I will take it to manufacturer
- by the end of May I will have first 10 pieces
- but not enough kilometers tested - so still hesitating, when to start the sales... It is possible, I will start looking for first few testers (still has to pay some money for the "testing" pieces - I need to cover some costs) in few weeks and if all goes well I will start the sales...
I am available for "testing" if you need volunteers. If not, I'm looking to be an early customer.
Very interested in testing for you, I want one anyway and if that means I get it a bit cheaper
Just to check, it will work with stock exhausts right?
drop me a line when your ready I am quite happy to "pay" to play and test for you
I'm in for testing too, if needed.
