Unifilter shipped in about 4 weeks to Canada.

http://www.uniflow.com.au/index.html

Very happy with it so far - however 1st day riding with it in - a Buick park Ave nails me in an intersection (over the bars across the engine hood and to the ground) the bike did better than the Car somehow?
Needless to say I will need a new front fender/fork protector.

There also has been 2 group buys so far - possibly there may be enough people looking.

Not sure how cheap it was in the group buy. but filter for 29$ and 20$ to ship I did not want to wait for this product. The reviews are outstanding.

Good point. Bought the filter before I even took delivery of the bike.

Installed a 17th front sprocket yesterday. So much smoother on the highway. I don't due much mud with this bike, just gravel roads. Should be just fine on the low end. Added benefit is not needing to double shift in the low gears now.

Would you comment on the price, where you got it, RPM at 65 or 70?

Ebay, Sunstar 40417, $30
Drops a bit more than 400 rpm's in each gear

Renthal is the brand everyone is using on the triumph site, but I couldn't find a dealer. So much better on the highway. Driving around town in 4th or 5th, not 6th.

The other concern was whether you could get the tank off the mount up in there. It all works huh?

I'm not sure I need that much fuel capacity. I guess for some offroad stuff or northern territories it would prove beneficial. I was also thinking of a tool box or tube there. Definitely something is needed, it's just stupid extra space. What do you think of the HT shelf and bag? I'm thinking it would be dirty all the time, and wet if it rained at all.

Anyway, looks good!

Thanks Chris,

If they made a 1GAL option it would have been optimal. The base mount stays but the retaining align handle DOES need to be fully unscrewed and removed and then the tank has to be tilted out but nothing that needs to be forced. Works great for what was intended.

I used steel as the mounting plate, heavy duty self-tapping screws on top and medium duty on the bottom as the majority of weight/pull is from the top area. If they shear then I can upgrade to grade 8 bolts...we'll see.

Since you already have the same setup I would suggest you take a whack at it, it wasn't too hard.

The HT inner rack option looks flimsy and doesn't really accommodate my needs as i already had the fuel can. I can see a tool bag but not 10lbs of fuel.

Good luck bro!

I have been wondering the same thing in regard to where the swing arm ends up at full compression. I have the Wolfman setup with the Rotopax to the out side but I have been wondering if I can move it to the inside. I am now realizing i should be able to look up the amount of suspension travel she has and measure while it is up on the center stand and find out myself. You may want to do the same before you possibly find out the hard way.

Yeah. We saved a lot of money on shipping with the group buy. I think the shipping maxed out for less than what it costs to ship two filters to the USA individually. It cost us a little more than a dollar per filter to bring them over and I entered the order online and they were here in about a week and a half.
