What is your range with subframe tank?
Scouting info on large scroll sizes. Do you have the approximate length of the Libya one? (or the number of pages that it had?)

Yes I agree with you Mr safari! Husaberg did not produce reliable rallye bikes. However, I have heard that since KTM has taken over Husaberg, the company has started producing better rallye bikes.

Had enough room, but you have to take your time rolling it on. If you bend it too much it doesn't work. Cut it the longest day.

The range is about 200 km I guess. It takes forever to fill up, so I fille the front, then a PET-bottle, and tank again, rode to the start of the next special and topped up with teh bottle.

GezwindeSpoed, about the Fuel boiling, did you mount some heat protection under the tank?

Something like this:

Nope, maybe that would have helped. A friend of mine has a low swing exhaust, he still had this problem, so it looks like the heat is mainly from the engine.

In 4 years of racing the 70 degree bikes over about 155,000km all up in Australia, EU and Dakar we NEVER ever experienced a fuel boiling situation.

We also never used heat protection of the stock main tank that holds the fuel pump, which we always retained.

Maybe I am too slow in the dunes

Just before the dunes there was a refueling point. The truck was standing in the sun, so maybe the fuel was already pre-heated. I was not the only one having this problem, also some 500exc's and older carburated bike had issues as well. It was around 45C at the hottest moment of the day.

I did not loose any water during the rally, but I have a fan installed (which was only running in the dunes).

I have only boiled the coolant on slow trail technical trail riding and idling...no fan kit.
