Monster auxiliary tank as well!
Hi Neil,

My bike is relatively unchanged from 2010 Dos Sertoes. Cooler and tank were in use at that time.
Yes you are looking at an HT Racing oil cooler

The aux tank is from Baja Designs Adds 1.1gal of fuel and has served me well. I feel that the stock install(using BD hardware) for the aux tank is inadequate in one area, under full suspension loads/twisting sub frame, rear tire will contact inboard surface of tank....not good. This condition is exacerbated when running 140/80 18(full size rear)
The simple solution is to weld an extension(1" will do) onto BD mounting bracket which moves tank away from rear tire the requisite distance.

Aux tank and stock tank(together approx 4.5 gal) have yielded 160-190mile range. Given a known and acceptable jetting set up, range depends on throttle control or lack of, terrain, and quality of petrol.

Hope your leg is healing well
