$364 ready to roll? Put me down for one.
Bike will have to be re-mapped because of air filter flow differences. Perhaps one of the EVO maps will work. How is the intake noise with this air filter?
Very nice works
in your futur project , why not reflect to realease the same tank
This is very nice piece! Who produce it???
No this is no my way, because:
- in my case the change is very simple and even "non-technical" people will be able to change it
- you dont have to change anything else on the bike - like eg. the seat in this case
- the form/mould would be extremelly expencive and thus the tank too
My final model says 6,5 liters capacity - so in reality it will be 6 liters
your tank looks great. how much fuel can it store?
With your system, is it possible to use the stock filter setup (airbox).
One line above you it says 6 liters, and obviously this tank is replacing the stock airbox....
Ktm = 690 Baja
Sorry wanted to ask in my last post jm65
how much fuel can it store?
With your system, is it possible to use the stock filter setup (airbox). The picture shows a different filter setup.
That is not JM's bike, it is a KTM 690 Baja, 1 of 4 in the world. The tank holds 19 liters, and it only works with the Rally air filter as pictured, and with a carburetor.
However, you can't buy it anywhere so I would look at your other options, like Rade's new tank, or the Rally Raid tanks, or the OEM KTM 450/690 Rally tanks.
more pictures and info :
Can you actually use all the 14ltrs in the Safari tank, or is there some fuel that is left in the tank for any reason? i.e. fuel taps too high?
Having fuel taps a cm or so above the lowest point of the tank lets any crap thats got in the tank settle in the bottom and helps stop it getting to the pump etc.
I never ran down both tanks so not sure, but the taps are low enough and there is a cross over between both lower parts of the tank. So they drain evenly or you can drain one side if you feel like it, not sure why though. Just have to make sure when filling both front and rear tanks to turn off the tap for the front tank, it will over flow the rear. Then after 100km (60miles) you can open the front tank to drain into the rear, or drain the rear first then open the front you call. Great tank easy to install and adds a lot of extra fuel. One person i know when doing trips with gear only fill the front because it is a pain to get to the rear tank.
I thought of doing a similar airbox but one that would have the center incorporate the airbox that would allow fitting the uni twin pod filter and so allow the tank to extend further back. Did you give any thought to this type of design?
Good points guys, thanks for the replies.
+1 on this idea, the K&N filters are a deal killer for me
I am not a fan of the K&N as well, but with a foam pre-filter it will work fine for me. I'd even make one from the bulk uni-filter material from motorcycle superstore.
Any progress in this tank project..?
Very nice, keep up the good work!
