TM33 install

This is the coolant catch tank I came up with for the Mikuni TM33 installed on my KLR250. This photo shows the stock carb cable choke installed. I now have the choke knob that came with the TM33 in place.
I'm still not decided if i am going to keep the carb on the bike or go back to the stock CV carb. I use this bike to commute and my milage went from 60-70 mpg with the CV carb to 40-45 with the TM33 pumper.

Also have the CW 330 kit and he put a pressure relief hole in the rotor cover and a 1/4" line out the back of the bike. So the tank gets in the way of that also.
