My brother works as a designer for 3M's Original Wraps and has been a vehicle wrap installer for years. Prepped the plastic, used a bonding agent...
not sure if it'll stick long-term, but we gave it a try anyway. Cheap experiment.

I'm sure he'd be happy to "wrap" with you about your ideas (Jeez... that was corny )

Thumbs down

Well, I can say that after doing 5,000 miles over the last three weeks the fuel range of my stock 950 SUCKS

At one point during the trip I stored the 950, flew up to San Francisco and rode my KLR650 down the coast to L.A. (was VERY happy to get back on the KTM) the stock range on the KLR650 is about 270 miles to a tank which is WAY WAY more appropriate for an adventure type bike. (KLR gets much better mileage).

I felt like I had to get gas all the time "just in case" with the stock 950 adv set up. May be looking at upgrading the tas in the future.

I love mine. I wish I had upgraded the tanks when I first bought the bike.

I finally have a set of the Safari tanks for my 990 .
There was talk about the included gasket. However, the instruction sheet that came with the tanks does not reference it; it just says to slide the pump in the tank???
Do I use it?
Why is there no gaskets for the fuel gage sensor and the petcocks?

The sensors don't need a gasket, the fit is tight enough to stop any leaks. The fuel pump is the only thing that needs a gasket and that's where the discussion has come in about using petroleum/ethanol resistant rubber as a gasket material.

Least that's what I can remember. I just woke up. I'm pretty positive about it though.

I am getting bummed. I *think* I placed an order earlier this year, but was told they're on back-order. I said to keep my order in place because I wanted a set, Then was told they might be getting re-designed. Meanwhile, I was sorta told they might come before July, or maybe as late as September. So I wait (not so) pantiently. Now I hear others are getting some, and I still haven't heard anything new in quite some time.

I am already having to change my summer trip plans because I need the extended range for my planned trip.

If you have the 990 then you don't use the gasket material that comes with the tanks... that's for the block off plate if you have a 950. Otherwise, you just have to watch that you don't bugger the shit outta the 2 o-rings on the 990 pump as you slide it in. Lithium grease is recommended.

Yep... saw this one coming a mile away. Since it's now winter in Australia, they're using this time to pull the molds off-line... at least this is what I've heard. Aqualine is NOT very forthcoming with information. The skinny is: don't expect any 9X0 tanks to be in stock in the US till late September/October.
