Dual Fans? from a SM? I was thinking about doing this in the spring when I do your tank.
LOL yea,, my 20 year old jeep is passing my house for investment.. :eek1
So it looks like you'll be offering this kit by Christmas then.
Good onya ken
The Adv Kit came 1st so it'll be available earlier. And that should be easier as the engine mounts can carry the bash plate
Well let's find out who wants Ken to build the parts we're talking about.
Matbe if demand is high enough he'll acquiesces.
For a future project
I'd like the underseat tank and skid plate at a minimum.
But really want a more complete kit with exhaust pipes
his tank, etc.
What ? maybe $5,000 a pop x 10 to 20 sets.
I want a kit for sure might as well the rear SE shock as a bundle too.
That's what I would have guessed - but I had some recollection you had the fuel pump between the cylinders... must have been mistaken
The FI pump is in the exact location as the stock pump, but mounted on the radiator support instead. That keeps me from having to deal with the extra plumping or any wiring when pulling the tank...
Yeah, the pump on the tank sucks.
Personally I find the adv tanks less hassle than the SE tank because of all bollocks attached to the SE tank.
Just out of curiosity - what benefits has underseat oil tank? I have never heard about problems with original oil tank and it's weight is in lowest position possible too.
It weighs a heap and acts on the front suspension
As well as the horrible mount to the bottom of the radiator. If it takes a hard hit there the force goes strait to the radiator and then your stuck in the middle of nowhere.
There's no reason for these mods. None what so ever...
And don't forget the most important one
It looks cool as bro
Nice to hear some Ozzie slang .... chur for the comments and saweetas eh.
Makes the bike look lighter too.
I imagine this "can" happen, but bearing in mind that oil tank is also supported by triangles connected directly to frame, how possible is that in real life?
Regarding weight advantage - saving few pounds just 1 foot from the ground and adding almost same weight (new tank plus oil lines etc) to 3 feet from the ground - how much of a gain is this actually? Can you actually benefit from that?
I agree this "cool looking" point completely and long winter is arriving - there's must be something to modify during this time
I've also sheared off one of those little 6mm bolts connecting those triangles to the frame. The oil tank seems seriously robust, the mounts not so much.

I love this...keep posting pictures
It would seem that a 2>1 setup would open up a spot for for the oil tank that may alleviate the need for some of the welding and wiring mods.
