Safari tank (4.5 gal) is pricey for what it is... My ims hold more that 4.6 gal. I took it to clean it to get it ready for a big ride, when I installed it back on I refill it with exactly 4.6 gal on the dial. The gas level still down 3-4 inches to reach the top.
Glad to hear it holds over 4gal.

I know there are lots of graphics kits out there...but I would like some cut specifically to fit the tank, and that don't look like I'm a 16yr old with an MX bike ;)

I have been looking at RIT Dye, and wondering if I could cover a strip with vinyl tape and keep a sight gauge natural colored, while dying the rest of the tank.

Hmmm

Here's a new one (for me anyway):

I was cruising along a track in the Sunset Desert when I heard a 'twang' followed by an increase in revs.

Thinking I'd done a throttle cable, I pulled the clutch and hit the kill switch... cables were OK.

Pillion out. 4WD back in to pick the bike up. Found this when I got home:



No sign of the fragment. Possibly chewed and spat out in the initial rev surge. (I pulled the head off to check the pot; just to be sure)

Just my luck. The dealership have never seen a DRZ slide fail.

Already ordered. Should be in tomorrow.

Thanks, I'd wondered about that. DR owners are encouraged to remove the top roller regardless, so that'll be old hat for me. Thanks again.

Hi there,

Is it any improvement for the passenger? Thinking of getting one for my SM.

Thanks cheers

Well I checked the cooling system for exhaust gases and its checked good. I also checked the water pump impellers and its fine. Anything else I'm missing?
