thanks for the data point. 200 mile range is perfect.
"new" i can find the 6.6 for $300, the safari is $475? hoping to find a used one this winter.

i really liked the safari on my wr250r. but, i'm not paying near $500 for a tank i'll use a couple times a year.

I wouldn't hold your breath waiting for a used safari.

trailjammer armor

hey, if anybody is interested in a clutch cover armor guard, post up on this thread:

I really doubt these will fit the '04-'06 RFS models. The diameter and shape is a little different. Get some people together and if there's an order of 5 or more maybe I can make a model for the RFS bikes. I might have a connection on an '05 to work with. It takes a lot of resources to build one of these prototypes. I need the demand in orders to make it worth while. I would love to be able to make accessories for all models. I'm just limited on resources. I'll keep your request in mind for sure.
2 requests so far.

bump ttt

just fit my safari. looks nice. fits like a glove. the orange isn't quite the same. whatever, it'll be covered in mud soon

it's slim enough it might make my 3 gal clarke redundant. i can still use the stocker for dirt stuff.

i put a little gas in it to make sure it wasn't leaking. i'm going to try to get out next week for a little loop, i'll fill up and measure it then. it looks like there will be some unusable fuel due to the lower front wings.

It doesn't feel any wider than the IMS 3.2
