1. Bike revs quicker, sounds awesome, defenitely livelier!!
2. Works on vacuum, as the main tank drains it pulls the fuel from the aux tank.
3. They are locally made here in South Africa by a mate of mine, if you are really keen i'm sure we can work something out.

Yep thats the best $4.63 I spent on the bike. Raises the side stand lean by 1 inch and a 1/4. And dosnt slip on tarmac and dosnt sink as bad in soft stuff.

It is an underseat tank made in South Africa by a gentleman called Gert Becker. These tanks are made out of sheet metal. This gentleman also manufactures the two finger levers.

just banging around...

Headers are getting beat up a bit...





No muffler, less weight (9.6 lbs if you are counting)



Flat tires really suck...




Luckily, I had a new Metz Karoo on the stock wheel, ready to go...
