    I have made aluminum fuel tanks that replace the rear cargo plate. The tank is plumbed into the main tank. If the 950 that had the tank was from Jackson Wy more than likely I made it. I'm ashamed to say that I don't have any pics right now, but I'm making two more right away. They will be done some time next week and I will post some pics then.

    that happens to be my bike and fuel is tranfered through fuel lines running through the frame and under the plastics to the existing fuel line.

    mine holds 1.75 gal and another guys holds 2.5 i believe.

    1 gal. = 8 pounds:lol3

    The brackets for the 950 fit into the stock ktm luggage rack.

    I also have rear mount aux fuel tanks for the 950 adv.

    [​IMG]
    950 tanks are made to order (2-3 weeks) std size 1.75 gals, can make custom sizes.

    EXC (450-525) racks only 140.00
    950 brackets 30.00
    Fuel tanks start at 650.00

    I will be working on a dirtbagz only rack for the 950 adv, the rack will move the bags forward about 6" and be around 6lbs lighter than the stock gobi racks.
    I will also be working on 950 se racks and fuel storage.

    All his racks are Chrome Molly steel , very strong and light . His 950 auxillary tank is very easy to use . I've had one on for all summer and have used various plastic tanks in the past Koplins etc..., plastics are a pain to use stoping to refill and messy. Most effect bike handling in a negative way too. These have baffels , we tried fuel cell foam in mine .I can hardly tell it's on board.

    The tank is tied into the fuel line and vented to one front tank .

    Why won't the racks fit a 03' 450EXC, looks like the only diff is the one piece fender?

    On the 03 and older ktm's the bolt holes in the back of subframe are differant. Go to moto-sportpanniers.com they will have a rack to fit the 03, they are great guy's to deal with check them out.


    I only make the rack for 04 and newer that they don't.

    Dirtbagz doesn't make a set of pannier racks for the 04-07 EXCs, only 03 and below. If it helps dirtbagz sell more bagz, why not?

    I'm pumped for these, will be orderingin the spring.

    Yes I have talked it over with Ed at Dirtbagz and he is ok with it. Ed is not interested in making racks for the 04-07 ktm exc. I fact if you were to call
    Dirtbagz to order a set of racks for the 04-07 exc's Ed would give you my number.

    I'M NOT IN ANY WAY A PART OF DIRTBAGZ just some one who needed some luggage for my 06 450 XC for a baja trip so I made my own racks.

    I hope this clears things up.

    Wow. I want to know more! What kind of oil are you running, for example? Your mileage beats Dirt Rider's RFS of 30,000 miles. When you put in the seal get the inner race as well. It grooves and will ruin a new seal if not replaced.

    BBriggs -- you tear your seat installing your bags? Can you post a pix of the mount you made for the rear of the sub frame? (You can see mine back on about page 12.) How is the rear mount holding up to the usual crashes?
