Hi Joan - I hope your fever is over:-)
Could you just draw your idea simply and send it to me?

Btw. I am doing now carbon-kevlard skid plate, where I will re-alocate the tools.

cheers :-)

Have scored 2 extra cheap subframes (one was a write off from a crashed bike so need to see if its still straight) the other should be fine.

Actually have a subframe in my apartment and have plans on starting to make some drawings on my dreams, will probably be around here asking for help about material thickness and similar.

But right now Im running a fever and have a hard time sleeping so drinking a little whiskey to kill some germs!

Underseat Tank

WoW that's an auxiliary tank I could get behind! Excellent work, are they available and how much?
Thanks!

Gotten over the fever at least (a while back but busy times, friends getting married and taking care of a moose after the hunt and stuff).

Have started doing some drawings on the computer but nothing that is possible to present at the moment.

Want to play some with a cardboard mockup but right now the oil leak I have is highest priority want to decide what to do about it (bike is in pieces right now ready to see if the cylinder head nuts are torqued properly, had to look at my dads car while bike was cooling down and by the time that was done it was to late, had to get home.

http://www.dirtyadv.com/ktm-950-adventure-oil-leak/

Will share my plans and stuff later on, might need help with suitable kind of aluminum and material thickness later on.

See you have Prague as location, great city!

Hi Johan,

I saw the pix. of your bike. That is pitty. I understand, this is priority now.
Btw. I was talking with a friend and It would be possible to do the tank instead of the frame. Question is how much gas on top you get. It wont be more than 1-2 liters max. I will wait for your drawings.

good luck with the repair!

Rade

p.s. thx. Prague is nice :-)

I saw you video - "killing" one enduro by one - nice job with ADV:-)
We did similar test and no problem with the tanks. Next I want to find someone who is crazy enough to do some real jumps :-)

New development

Hey,

I decided for an innovation - to do polyethylen underseat tank!

Now (after the back wheel clereance test) I am sure on the correct shape and the fuel cap under the seat.
The 3D model is saying 8,5 liters volume, but in reality it will be one less I think.

1/ I did the shape from hand, specifically thinking about the clereance for the rear wheel.



2/ It was scanned and modified into 3D model



3/ Prototype attrape was billed by CNC machine from styroform



4/ Rear spring from the shock was removed to make a clereance for the rear wheel





5/ Finally dynamic hit and max. compression confirmed the clereance







... and here is the trailer :-)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=19234Jluh0E

Last three things to be solved:
a/ outflow - only spce is above the pipes...
b/ air vent - to avoid "air pockets"
c/ isolation of the pipes under the tank


Guys, pls. any thoughts, comments, recos, hints before it moves to the form production? (because it is as expencive as the bike it self.)

If all goes well the first pieces for testing will be ready in the end of Feb:-)

Thanks!

That is brilliant !

My only thought is, was it a new tyre on the rear. Hopefully it is the biggest knobiest tyre you could find. You know cause if they clear, you should be sweet.

Looking forward to hearing prices etc.

Great work.

I'm kind of sure you have thought of this- but just in case- every tire is different by brand, and chain adjustments for stretch could effect where the wear is on this type of tank.

Nice work on both tanks.

I would agree with BuddyHolly.....allowing for plenty of clearance front to rear for tire adjustments would be smart. Another suggestion would be to then reduce the overall dimension by a slight amount to allow for guaranteed fitment on all bike (would allow for KTM manufacturing variances) and perhaps to allow clearance for a Kevlar skin for further strength and abrasion resistance.

Very cool otherwise, keep it up!

two thumbs up on the concept. 2.5 gal would do nicely on the big twin. Beats pulling over and re-fueling with the roto pax! now just imagine this tank with rally tanks!

Keep going bigger picture...

With the talent and resources you seem to have, why not go all the way and make a full subframe that incorporates a rear tank as well as rear rally side tanks?
