I wanted to install it myself, as did he for my feedback but I'd travelled 750 kms today and had gotten rain and 12 C temps with no sleep last night. I was beat. Someone else will have to do the thread in the Parallel Universe but Cory says the instructions are very detailed and precise so it may not be necessary. You can view them on his website It's installed and filled so I'll tell you how it functions as I continue on.

With this diversion into Calgary, my Ride Report is further delayed. I'll catch up ASAP. For now, we got the last room in town (Cochrane) after riding inn the dark in Deer and Elk country. Calgary prices on rooms is nuts and Bec said the room we initially had was soooo disgusting she wouldn't sleep in it. It was a well known chain.

Thank you so much Cory! Now low fuel is Bec's problem...........
Glad I could get you set-up with a tank. Always good to meet customers in person. Enjoy the extra range on you trip
