I have seen guys use the GL with the Gobi side racks in place. I'm thinking the rally tanks would be about the same width as the Gobi racks?

The Giantloop doesnt fit that well over the luggage racks.

Gl?

Yep - the tanks fit inside the gobi racks (with a few little mods). Dont have a GL so cant say other than what others have said here. Given where the tanks will be fixed I dont think you'll need the racks tho if the GL's are your thing...

Hey Pete is there any chance you might make a single sided tank so it will fit the high mount 2 into 1 (if you havn't said so allready)

Single tanks

Hi Ben,

Yep - part 2 or the replica tank process. I'll be using the outside of the moulds and a different inner so it'll cater for the guys (and hot girls) with 2-1 and 990s with abs. Of course you'll still need a GPR or similar if your running both singles, but for the 2-1 owners there will be a single, but thats a little way off atm, one piece is my priority atm.

Pete

950 rallye tanks...

What's the latest with the tanks? It's been very quiet for awhile now, any progress? Gotta have a set!

Quiet???

Quiet - mate its the silly season and I've been silly Have a new mould for the CF bashie which Ive just pulled the Mk2 part from and will hopefully have mounted up this week. Even if I do say so myself the part looks brilliant straight from the mould - so detailing will be very minimal, almost a perfect rallye replica part. Pics mounted soon. (Lot of carbon in there - can never have too much).
The tank project is scheduled for a return 1st thing in the new year and I will hopefully have a moulded part by mid/late feb. If its any good then I might make a few extras for a few friends......

Other than that to all who have contributed thanks for your support with this project and have a safe and well lubricated christmas. Ride well.

Pete

Low exhaust?

Pete,
I'm assuming the bashie will work with the low Meoni style exhaust?
Any specoal mounting hardware needed.( I never did see how the 950 rallye had its attached.)

It is specifically for the rallye style low headers (GPR etc).
Mounting is similar to that of the OEM in that it pivots from the rear stock mounts and bolts up to a flange at the front. The flange bolts to the stock vertical threaded holes of the OEM tank mount, letting the bashie bolt through horizontally. (if this makes sense)??
