Johnjen, I haven't read all the posts, so sorry if I'm asking a question that's already been answered. Does the SSS work on an Adventure or is the Adventure tank more able to get at all the fuel?

S4 Initialization

The 'normal' initialization is to fill the hoses with fuel after filling the tank. You shouldn't have to fuss with it unless you run out of fuel or otherwise break the siphon.... So theoretically you should only have to purge the air from the hoses once...... However in practice I usually check mine every 4-5 tank full just because... JJ

Just to let you know..Mine came in the mail today..Thank you..If i remember right; once you fill the tank up once and purge the S4; every refill of fuel after that, the line should prime it's self, if no air get's into the system..correct?

Thanks again

300 miles on a stock GS tank... no sorry, even at higher altitude the math comes up short! Something else was going on here. I have an "S4" and like many comment here... use the extra 20+miles to keep me from freeking out whne I'm "normally" about to run out of gass. I hav elso experiaced the "negitive" effect... the S4 does indeed work, whne on the kickstand, the RIGHT lobe drains into the left! Lovely! Afer a short ride, things equalise, but it will piss you off to see two bars of fule go away! I hade to re-do a clear coat on my adenture tank... and with almost 8 gallons and a REAL equalizing tube, I'm muchhappier... particularly since I steal fule from my tank for my camp stove too! :mad:

Oh, now I understand! I use to live in Breckenridge andonce you cross Vail pas its DOWNHILL for almost 20 miles! (Great fun on a bike too!) Also the lower air reisitance helps (strange isn't it to be able to sit upright and barely slow down at all?) I'm not sure, but the sloap from the Rocky Mt.'s is highter than most everything arrounf it. so you are crusing downhill most of the time.

As the expression goes, "down hill with a tailwind" so this may the the all time high milage possible. Congratulations, but I bet you do not get this milage again on the flat strech.

BTW- if sound slike you ran out of fuel, so did you do this on purpose? It's not particularly good for the fuel injectors as they try to maintain a proper mixture when the fuel is starved. (Or at least this is what my dealership told me).

Re S4

Been having a read of this thread.

I must admit, I AM interested in your device. However I do note that most of you are in the US. Not big on ordering overseas. So short of getting someone to privately emailing me some specs. on the device....would it be a stupid idea when the bike is nearly out of fuel....stop. lay the bike on its right side (where the fuel pump is) stand it up and continue???

I only mean this as a desperate measure......it beats pushing the big beast.

What are youre thoughts?

you need to remenber.....

than unless you have a ODDESEY battery your is going to spill,,and the final drive bredding hole will do to....
so I have back up plan for you...take the seat, disconect the 8MM bolt on your right ,and move just the tank to the right,,a lot less complicated...
to complete the bike on the side occupate way more area,,,AKA,,more risk to getting Hit by I car(in california free-ways,,,big deal)and then mister "poncharello" will come and bitt you in the butt.......
I'm sure JOHN J. can send you one in the mail for just a little more money,,,,
I do think this device makes total SENCE,,,,and don't let the simplicity of the concept decibe you,,,
the romans USED for centuries to bring water to there citys............

Tks for the input.

But if what you are saying is true, then I shouldnt stack the bike on the right side. For if I do......the result will be catastrophic!!

Dont be concerned about the risk to life by traffic....I think at last count the DMV registered its tenth vehicle out here

As for the "CHiPs" ie Poncherello and Jon (Baker) having a say?.........man are'nt they dead.. or are you just as OLD as I am!!

Remember however.....you are only as old as the woman you are feeling..


Cheers Gonz

As for the "CHiPs" ie Poncherello and Jon (Baker) having a say?.........man are'nt they dead.. or are you just as OLD as I am!!

R:) well...I quess i don't exist,,,,I'm lonnely this days,,,and maybe that is way I work so much....

The tourtech tank already has a cross over line that connects at the bottom of the tank at the forward end of the lobes..the line runs between the tank just in front of the Alt. cover..
