Taki!

OK, so we've got the 2 into 1's handled now, as everyone can see. I've had a few PM's asking where to order, so in case that wasn't clear, Blackdog is the only place to get 'em.

We've found a new vendor who is making the 2 into 1's out of stainless, which is more expensive but, judging by the product, better. So, we've had to raise the price $25 to $250- still less than the stock crappy chromed crossover pipe, and our supply chain isn't as efficient as KTM's. New versions of the SE pipe will be Stainless as well. I think everyone will agree, they're beautiful!

On to the tank: the design is final, the mold has been paid for, the clock is running. This has (obviously) taken much longer than I anticipated, but I've been getting help on the project from engineers I can't afford, because they think it's a cool project (and have made it even cooler with their efforts), but that means I can't dictate the schedule. The good news is, it should be totally awesome when it's done. The bad news is, it should have been done in June. Cest la vie!

In any case, as soon as the prototype from the mold arrives, I'll be getting the mounting and plumbing details figured out, all of which will be documented here.

Great job Neduro. I'll watch this thread with attention to see what the Adventure tank looks like

Believe me, I'm in the same boat! I should have the prototype in about 2 weeks, as soon as I do I'll be working hard on getting the fitting and routing bits figured out.

Final note- our new vendor for the 2 into 1's is excellent. We're having him make the SE parts now, and while we're a week or so behind schedule with getting those up to speed, the stainless versions are coming out beautifully.
