Hi, could one of you gentlemen post a photo of the longer hoses going to the new cooler position, I've the
cooler pushed out of the way to fit the tank but I don't have the longer hoses/mounts etc.

I just want to be sure the hoses will allow the cooler to sit in the right place and not foul when I fit a new
front end, so it's the length of each and a photo of the cooler in position if possible.
Thanks, Daithi.

Apologies for the duplicate posts, I thought the first one hadn't worked, and OnaXR thanks, that's exactly what I needed. I'll need to get those pipes made up and your photos will help a great deal.


I'm awaiting delivery of a DRz400E front end and will post pics when I've both jobs done. Thanks again.

Daithi.

Come over and put new pushrod seals on mine and we will call it even.

seat mod

Does anyone have pics of how/where the stock r100gs seat needs to be modified for the tank to fit? I'd rather have a bit of guidance before I get out the sawzall.

There is some info on the touratech site. It says about 1cm needs taken off the front edge of the seat where it meets the tank. If my solo seat pan I ordered ever shows up I will tell you exactly how much I cut off the nose to make it fit.

Yes, you do need to modify the seat pan (& then the seat cover) to fit. The bit removed is a wedge, rather than a total amount. You need the seat pan to parallel the back of the tank.



This is a picture of the seat, premodified, test fitted. Obviously I couldn't fully 'seat' the seat because of the overlap.

I took 15mm off the bottom in a wedge shape, zero point in the vertical axis is 60mm from the bottom. These measurements are for a Seibenrock replacement seat pan. I think I am going to take 60mm off the nose of the seat where it climbs up the back of the tank. I just don't like the way it looks. The rear of the HPN tank is an odd shape. What do you guys think? Cut or no cut?

Ok, I looked at pics of your seat on your "Gus" thread. That's what I hoped it would look like if I cut the nose off. The kreiga 5l looks good. I'm going to borrow that idea.
