I'll be converting to vendors shortly as there seems to be enough interest via PM's to justify spending the time making proper moulds and hence parts.

Pete
Any pics of the mule tanks with the pillion cutouts?

up-date

Pete,

Thanks for the up-date. I know this isn't your primary gig so no wories. I always ride solo so I opt for no passenger peg cut-outs....I realize I may be in the minority though.
Look forward to them being done....as I'm sure you are too!

Talk to you soon,

Grant

Tanks

This f'n thread has my mind buzzing. Just out of curiosity..how come no one is pursing this concept. Purely bolt on. Probably be able to make the capcity of the bike 40 liters total... I'm just saying...

Tanks

True...they aren't the best looking tanks but I think the concept is sound and I certainly think that it can be improved upon. What do you think K2?

I hated the standard exhaust routing...... The bike radiated heat from every direction. My first big job on the bike was to change that ......thow I had made the foam tanks to get the shape right. I always loved the twin 660 rear exhaust on the Dakar rally bikes that year 2005.......

And then there was the thought that extractors would pull a few more ponies out of the beast

K2m, how important is it to have close to equal header lengths on both cylinders? One thing bagging me with the GPR exhaust is that front one is so much longer than the back...

regarding weight balance, I think the best place for the tanks is not necessarily as close to the engine as possible, but right on the rear axle and as low as possible.

Generally it's not......

A rally car can benefit from unequal header length as it spreads the torque curve.

A F1 car would benefit from equal length as it centralises the power curve.

There is a marriage between header length and cam timing

Collector design is critical for success

With the LC8..... it's a 75Deg V Twin which means you must have an unequal length to be equal.

SD Cams really suit the "Africa Queen" replica exhaust.

My third, and final collector..... this one hit the spot

If these had been available I would have bought them but theyre not, mores the pity. Hence the lengthy build. I think they look great - nice ally fabrication, Id love to be able to weld/fab that well......

Pete's are more of a replica , true to original design, that is what we want.
