Just stumbled upon this thread.
Why, oh why, did you have to plant these ideas in my already overloaded mind?!
When your done, take it for a spin down to GBG so I can have a go. OK?
Can't wait to see the finished result!

Evil Invader, I envy your access to these rare parts. Do you know if engine components can be had for the Rally bikes still. Or would it be futile because the frame and transmission is completely different than standard?

Donīt really know what components you are refering to, but anything should be possible to order from your local dealer as long as you have the part.no.

Hello!

So, where were we.... ah, lights and roadbook.

Got me a pair of candles from an 640 Duke.
Some modification to make it fit.




One in place, one more to go...



Gpsmount, trip and roadbook in place



And..... voila!









Switches for gps, gripheat and ignition




The End.

















Na!

Cool! How does the fuel circuit work from the Rally tanks?

What's the problem with your fuel system?

I would just use a simple/cheap/small/reliable Mikuni vacuum pump like the factory rally bikes (DF52-60). Put it down low up front to pump the fuel from both front tanks to the rear of the bike:

(not this exact model, but something similar)



Then use the RRP-UK tank adapter to feed it into the main tank.

This way you don't need an external pump and no additional wiring, just a simple vacuum line.

Would this take a vacuum fitting off the head? And function with FI vs carb?

The vacuum pump doesn't care whether it's FI or carb, it's just a simple low pressure pump (5-7 psi maybe?) to get the fuel from both front tanks into the rear. Then the stock high pressure (43-45 psi?) EFI pump takes over.

You could use any vacuum source that pulls when the bike is on, there is at least one on the head and one on the throttle body from the stock emissions equipment that could be used.

From Bartron's thread:

Head:



Throttle body:

Probably this way I will go.
Just wonder if the pump will work with the rally fueltap, so I can "fill up" from the front tanks say when the low fuel-light comes on.
Hmmm... will have to make a return line when the petcock is "closed".....

Maybe you could put a valve on the vacuum line. So it would only pump when you wanted it to.. You could even use the electric valve that you took off when you removed the emission's BS... Mount a switch on your dash!
