    Winter here we come!

    I am going to add some discounts to the website.

    Give me some time to get my code guys working again and in a week or three there will be a 20% discount (or better) to be had.

    fixing to order one of your u-bends, are you selling the kit with hose yet? I’ll order from Amazon if not.

    Discount will end in the next day or three.

    Down to just a few Stainless U bends.
    Will likely offer them in more of a "kit" form going forward.

    Looking for some feedback here.

    Do I need to consider including more stuff?
    I did not see any need to include: fuel filter, pump, or strainer, since you can get those at any auto parts store?

    :super

    Looks like a nice kit. If only I hadn't already done it to my vintage FI BMW's. Max includes M&M's with an order, I prefer peanut myself.

    Nushings headed to South Afica today, I think that is a first!

    the kits are still not on the website yet, im in the process of weighing things, and taking photos.

    but soon.

    I'm trading my K12RS for an LT this weekend so I might be on the market for a kit in the future.

    Oh ok, lets do this then, if any one wants a Fuel tank kit, just PM or email me, I have the parts ready, just not the website aspects.

    Boy howdy.

    thanks! I sure did!

    The old GS was a handful on the Gold standard loop ( Mextrek route)
    but we survived, with only a blinker as a casualty.

    Sale coming up for the first week of April

    MFOF sent me a kit for my K1200LT. The mounting flange and gasket is different so I'll hang on to the o-ring for the next time I'm in my GS tank. The internals are pretty much the same - the fuel sender is different so it's not in the way; making this even easier once you get all the Fing body panels off so you can pull the tank. Few photos.

    The set up. Looks original to me. 14+ years and 57,000 miles. Due for a filter change:

    The end result:

    Feedback? The in-tank hose in the kit was on the short side because I also replaced the third hose section, another inch would be perfection. Otherwise top notch and a very simple install. This is the third BMW I've done this mod on.
    The completed assembly:

    fuel tank kitv2.jpg Hey thanks Bruin!

    Photos, and for letting me know that k1200 bikes can use the U, also that I need to include a bit more hose in the kits.

    I am still trying to get the kit added as a product on the website, not there yet, but they are available.

    email me for the kit, its $39 shipped in the USA ( $42 internationally)
    and includes, the stainless U, a generous length the proper SAE-30R10 "Gates" brand in tank hose, 4 clamps, and the large Viton O ring for the fuel pump flange
