How long would it have taken to run down the jam nut, and tighten them up? Don't use that method with your condoms!

Do y'all ever worry about breaking the sidestand by mounting the bike while the stand is still down? I know a lot of KTM sidestands were prone to snapping if you put weight on them, but the WRR stand feels more solid. Still not sure if I want to risk it...

I get on mine that way and I'm big so I think you'll be fine. Got a bud that also a big'um and he'll get on the same way with no problems. Yeah, those sidestands on the KTMs have a reputation for being flimsy, but the WRR stands are pretty solid.

I think I will put it under the saet, any one know the best (easiest) place to take a wired feed for the relay?

I had a quick look tonight but the wiring is well wrapped under there!
Thanks

I used the tail light wire which I think is the brown wire going into the tail light connector (use a multimeter to check it) which is located near the battery. I used the supplied positap connector to tap into it. I did have to strip back the harness convolute at bit back to get room to make the connection.

I put the relay and the distribution block under the seat. They all fit but it was tight.

Well finally after a long ice riding season and some major service surgery. I rode to work today. But wouldn't it figure its pouring rain out and we are under a winter storm warning with expected heavy freezing rain and or ice pellets.

BRING IT

I'm gonna bite the bullet and get an IMS tank - I can't stand it any longer - at the last three refueling stops, I put in 1.8 gallons - that's too damn close to running out and to damn often to keep filling up.
  • Any reason to get something besides the 3 gallon IMS tank?
  • Anyone recommend a reliable vendor for the tank?

Mega-thanks!

That is a sick looking bike. I have the black 3.1IMS tank too and it is sweet.

You must be putting some mega miles on your bike to be filling up that often.

Thanks, I had just put the graphics on so I wanted to take some pics before they get all scratched up. ;)

Red Sand - others can probably comment better on the bigger tanks but from what I have read here, the only negatives are the big ones require vacuum pumps to get all the fuel to pick up and that can be a potential problem. I just installed clear 3 gallon on mine and it was an easy install. The fuel connector was hardest part (pull down on orange thingy and press blue buttons on each side to release) I took lots of pics -pm me if you are interested

I've had the 4.75-gallon IMS tank since they came out in 2011 and have been very pleased. I don't even think about gas until I'm past 200 miles now. Doesn't seem to get in the way for my riding as the biggest part of the tank is forward in the front edges of the wings.

I thought about the 3-gallon one, but I figured for the same money why not get the max bang for the buck. If I want to ride with less gas I can always not fill it all the way full.
