    Hi Jardine,

    That's the Safari 27 litre on an old 620. It gave me 400klm's. Now the bike is running way too rich. When I used the bike last in a touring through the high country scenario I loaded up the plug. Had the bike not ran so rich I would have got more mileage out of it.

    Oh ok, I'll consider that. I wondered why they didn't do a tank bag.

    I do like the look of the tank bag in the pic you provided above.

    The GL Fandango fits really nicely to the stock and Safari tanks - straps at correct angle for frame.

    Just be aware they are not fully waterproof in heavy rain (leak through zips) electronics need to be in zip-lock/dry bags.

    I was looking at the 'Fandango' I do have a dry sac that will fit.

    As much as I use the phone for GPS I still like to use a map so a map sleeve would be handy.

    You lot are costing me money!

    Just bought the Fandango in black from Adventuremoto.

    Jak, the ver 2 is supposed to be water resistant for electronics. :thumb

    Also Jak...or anyone else but I'd assume Jak would have an idea seaing as he races these. How do these breath with what looks to be lacking airflow past the seat? I noticed on the Husaberg forum a fella had a 2 hp increase when dyno'd without the seat.

    You do have to be a little careful with which tank bag you fit so that it doesn't prohibit airflow to the air filter. One of the reasons I went with the Kriega setup. Other than that no problems experienced with air flow and the air filter where it sits other than the loud induction noise. You will see some photos around of seats with holes in them to aid airflow to the.filter.

    Al, there is reports of 2-4hp increases on dyno with seat off.
    Not sure what it does to the air/fuel balance unless a specific map was loaded.

    As @Cruz says, some have cut a lage hole in the seat above the air filter and some have the hole covered with a plastic mesh to keep the larger contaminants out.

    Air to the filter flows around the top of the tank shrouds, which is quite restricted. One the mods I've seen is where the tops of the shrouds have been trimmed down to allow more flow - haven't seen any dyno results for this mod, but simple if effective.
    My concern for either mod for trail/ADV riding is the susceptibility of water contamination when riding in wet conditions - splashes from puddles and rain ingress.
    The Safari tank allows more air flow(shrouds removed) and I haven't experienced any filter contamination issues yet.
    The induction noise is irritating enough, let alone having the filter exposed!
    I haven't modified anything and usually run the map setting on 'wild' which is enough bike for me!

    The fandango tank bag doesn't restrict any airflow.

    This is definitely the way to go with luggage. I had the wolfman e12 with the enduro bag but took up a lot of the seat and made me sit to far forward. I think I will be going with the coyote or the new mosko Moto reckless 40 look the goods to.

    One thing I like about the Kriega's is they keep the contents low. I can also manipulate where the saddle bag sits in relation to the side bags.

    GL, Mosko Moto, Kriega all great gear.

    Jak, did you have a Recluse clutch fitted or just the cover for a bit more oil?

    The Rekluse was in the bike when I bought it, had LH rear brake too but I didn't like it.
    Had a Rekluse in my EXC300 and loved it in that too - sorta Lazyman clutch.
    Not good for Supermoto, difficult to back-in - great off the start tho!

    I can't help myself with these things.

    Will see how this pans out. I can cover with tape if ever needs be.

    I'll be running the bike down to my brothers work in a couple of weeks and i'll put it on the dyno and check AFR's.

    Watch how you go through water as it seems to follow the plastics up that way a bit and now you may get a good bit in there. If you ride in dry areas then disregard..
