I hate this word, but I had an EPIC day out on the XR4 yesterday!

I am working on a ride report, but here are some pics to tickle your ass....

So what jackass decides to drill holes in his oil tank 3 days before a major trip? Yeah, me... So I wanted to hook up my trail tech temperature gauge before our trip, so I bought one of their M6x1 temp probes and made a bung for it on the lathe. I found a spot on the oil tank near the gas tank mount on the left side and started to drill. Well it turns out there is an oil tube for the cooler that runs internally down inside the tank and I punctured it. I'm not sure if it actually ends somewhere and opens up inside the tank or if actually connects somewhere.

If no one knows anything, I'll have to end up cutting a bigger hole for exploratory surgery, fix the tube, and then patch the larger hole.

Can't help with your exact question but why did you go that route over the temp ring under the spark plug?

Nah, I had the DR before the XR4. I keep it now as my 'buddy bike'.

If you call a bone stock XR4 (besides guards and gearing) that was ridden hard and put away wet for a brutal 12 years "nice", then thanks!

I could never get the temp ring over the spark plug and all the way down into the cylinder head. Trail tech said the xr400's are too deep and narrow and suggested putting it on a bolt on the cylinder head instead. This worked horribly on an air cooled engine as the temp would swing 100 degrees.
