You were the one on the 690, I hope. Some of the riders were either under-experienced, over-biked, or both. It was fun to watch. The Enduro was made for that mess...

thanx for the welcome and thots, however, I took off the Pirelli's (saving them for a better street/dirt ratio some day) and put on Metzler Sahara Enduro 3's. There unreal on asphalt, and pretty good in dirt with a low PSI (20 rear/18 front). I think they probably drift easier than the stock tires, which gives me more opportunity towards getting used to the bike.

(I'm still trying to figure out navigation to find instruction on downloading PIC's)

Grrrr--stan

Noyah: If you ever said where the (apparently) three different aluminum tanks in your pictures came from, I never saw it. Looks like they are all different. Were they fabricated locally? Looks like a great solution for adding range without width.

Thanks...

Same question here, if it's generating interest, perhaps needs it's own thread:
http://www.advrider.com/forums/showp...postcount=7924

I'm especially curious as I know someone locally that is a fabricator for Al tanks for various race car applications.

Its homemade :
I'm sure your local fabricator will be able to make one using stock airbox for messure.
I can post some numbers if it will help.

I'm about to make a few tanks to sell, I'm located in Sweden tho :)

Noyah: Just needed to know if if your tank was locally made or not. Nice work, regardless! I've got access to some very good fabricators in my area (aviation company) so I think I'll just size up my air box and let them work it out. Not cheap I'm guessing, but a nice solution. Thanks for your help. Others may like to get your measurements or if anyone with the skills would like to fab up a few, I suspect there would be takers.

Question: Yours appears to feature fairly heavy wall thicknesses? Was that because they were easier to weld that way or because you thought you needed that much thickness for the structural integrity of the tank?

Regards,
