That's what I did with mine,,,, fat wad of wiring. At some point I'm going with a custom harness and get rid of all the unneeded crap.

My 09 is closing in on 10K miles. In the name of preventive maintenance, here is my to-do list.

Dr Beans Fuel Pump Mod
CJ Designs Water Pump Shaft/Rebuild Kit
Radiator Fan Temperature Switch
Clutch Slave - Not sure which vendor yet, KTM-Twins, Oberon?
Rectifier - Not sure what to do here. Carry a spare OEM? Relocate using LakeMonsters kit?

Any other suggestions?

1) Forget Dr. Bean and install a vacuum pump. You'll never have to think about pushing fuel again - ever.
2) I did my pump at 12K.
3) Not sure why you need a manual fan switch. Probably the system just needs a flush which is something I would do at least once per year.
4) Pull the swinger and check bearings.
5) Same with the steerer.
6) If you've got a Black Dog sidestand relocation bracket, Kurt's got a suggested installation mod which involves swapping the locations of the mounting bolts. It's not a 10K thing, but you might not be on their mailing list.

Did you manage to pry the Safari from the guy in MI?

The rad switch I am referencing causes the fan to come on sooner at a lower temperature.

I do have the DB kickstand relocation bracket. I'll check with Black Dog.

The bike in MI went to a guy in IA. He offered up the tank, but I got no money no more. I'll score one someday.

I really can't afford KTMs. I may have to go back to Hondas...

Thanks

Rally Fuel Tank Question

I was not able to find any info on fuel flow. Does the rally side fuel tank empty into main 1st or? Interested in one does anyone have experience with this tank they can share?
Thanks

Yes I have one. PO had the top rear mounting using zip ties though. Must fabricate a proper bracket.


If you ride with the aux petcock open it will go down in tandem with the main. If you want to use it as a reserve just keep the aux petcock closed until you need it.


I now run a Safari main and I'm keeping the aux as a reserve. Just make sure the petcock closes fully. Mine doesn't and leaks into the main, depleating my reserve. Must fix it.


Depends on one's range requirements but I like having the gas onboard

You can plumb it to flow anyway you want, I didn't like the weight back there when luggaged up for travel so I'd run it out first. I installed a small valve so I could just reach down and switch to the main tank when this one was empty (first little sputter) or when mileage said it should be low. There was a check valve in the line from the aux tank to prevent back flow from the main.

Like that idea prefer the aux tank to drain 1st.

You can connect it to main tank breather hose and it will drain the rear tank first automaticly. You might have to add o-ring under the main tank cap gasket to make it tight. Works like a charm.

I have and and prefer it to the big Safari tank up front. Mine is always connected and drains slower then the main tank. When the main tank is empty the rear tank has about 1/3 left.

I once had a problem in Death Valley riding up a looooong uphill road for a good 20 or so miles and didn't make it to the top as the rear tank stopped feeding due to the incline and the front tank was dry. A buddy gave me a pint of fuel and I made it to the top.

I used to get 135 miles out of the stock tank and now it good for over 200.

I don't really notice the extra weight in the back but when I put it on I still had the stock exhaust so I think it's even when comparing the two setups.

We have the same setup although CJ tank and like you always run the rear tank dry first, system works very well.
