The scratched tanks are all now on hold for people I've spoken with, so we're down to "A" stock for future orders.

Capacity

Just ordered my tank, but can you confirm capacity, as i understand, 1 uk imperial gal= 1.2 us gal so if my maths are correct the total capacity for the tank is 12 litres, and not 8.3 litres as someone quoted earlier in this thread,
Unless your litres are different to the rest of the world .
Thanks in anticipation

U.S. gallons (no one uses UK Imperial gallons in the U.S.) 2.2 U.S. gallons @ 3.785 liters / gallon = 8.3 liters

just trying to save Ned a bit of time. He'll confirm, I'm sure.

Thanks, Lobby, spent the day at the airport being delayed, missing connections, and generally enjoying the state of air travel.

I got one of the first SE kits and must say how nice of a setup it is. I would have followed up with a complete ride report, but Illinois has been snowed, salted, and frozen since I got it mounted.
Once again, Thanks Ned for a great kit and great customer service!

How easy or difficult is it to install the 2 into 1 and external tanks?

In my admittedly biased opinion, easy. You don't have to remove the subframe or any other major components. The 2 into 1 requires removing both mufflers, loosening the two clamps, threading the 2 into 2 out, then sliding on the 2 into 1 and installing the single pipe. The hardest step is sliding on the 2 into 1 without pushing the gaskets down onto the headers, and I include a few tricks for that in the instructions.

The tank requires just a few bolts and a little simple plumbing. Having done it a few times now, I can do both chores in well under an hour, start to finish.

Thx for the info Ned. I should start saving some money or talk to my boss (my wife ) for a salary raise. I plan to go to Marocco end of March and extra fuel capacity would be great.
By the way, I received the second DVD of yours and watched half of it, very educative and interesting as the first one. Very well done

I'm just back at home from my trip, too late from what I see
So I'll go for a not scratched tank... even if the $50 discount was a good deal considering I'll scratch the tank very quickly

Neduro,
do you have 2 in 1 and the tank for 990 in stock ready to ship to Spain asap? I am planning to go to Marocco end of March. I think your auxiliary tank would be very handy.

This set up rocks!

Guys, just do it..the installation is clean, the parts are great quality, all the hardware is good and it bolts up like it should. I do not really feel the extra weight, you can notice it the first time you wheel around after fill up at the gas station, after that it just goes away.

The 2-1 exhaust improves the beast IMHO also.

After trying to cob up aux tanks from other sources ( everything seems to mount up too high and far back ) this is nicly done.

Much thanks Ned for taking the risk to bring this to market. If any of you inmates have questions about this feel free to PM me.

Thanks for the feedback, all, and you can expect another update this weekend.
Just noticed this thread on the UK KTM forum.... looks like locking caps are available for the smaller filler necks that KTM use......

G'day,

I can't speak for WINGS Canada, USA or Europe, but I have special ordered a few single sided LC8 silencers in stock for this application in Australia. I'm almost positive Gorazd will make LC8 right side exhauts on requests. Price should be similar to his 690E silencers.
