Thanks for posting. That does seem a little bit removed and not a terribly responsive site. Kreb's solution seems very invasive, but effective. I'm thinking I'll attach to an oil line banjo bolt on my next oil change (as the bike is self changing the oil very effectively, that may be this fall!).

This is for the Trail Tech Vapor

Here you can see the sensor mounted to the engine mount bolt on the head





On the frame under the fuel tank is a cable clamp/support. Run the sensor wire thru it as shown





sorry for the fuzzy pic

If I would have been 3/4" over with my original 1/2" hole I wouldn't have done such an invasive job. Thankfully I work in a shop with machine tools, etc... If I wouldn't have been in such a rush I probably would have figured out I should have angled the bung towards the top and not the front so the lead would be more out of the way. I don't think it will be a problem the way it is though.

before you tackle passenger pegs, you best figger' out a way to beef up the subframe for a passenger..remember, the XR is a single rider dirt bike, not a two up cruiser.

I'm in the middle of installing the Acerbis 5.8 gal tank and it seems like the forks will wear through the tank, yet it fits perfectly otherwise. Does anybody have experience with this?

Right? I'm doing TAT and there's a few 250 mile sections, rather than buying an extra storage tank and dealing with carrying it on the bike, I got the big tank.
