With some gear on board and my 115 kg I get around 500 kms out of my Safari tank, but I'm running an Arrow can and mapping. Have a 12 litre Liquid Containment bladder, which will hold 8 or 9 litres very comfortably and sits nicely down back. Gives me about 650 all up I reckon.

I rode from Windorah to Birdsville with the standard tank loaded with gear and it took 17.5 litres to fill. Distance to empty flat lined about 10 ks out though. That's around 380ks or so.

5 litre Fuel Holder

I work on absolute 320km max when averaging 80-100 km/hr on my 19 litre tank.
I have installed a 5 litre holder/jerry for rear of my rack (all up $20) which should get me another extra 100 km and fill the gaps for a total 420km for up coming Cameron Cnr Ride in April.
Rack also acts as a stopper for strapping swag etc up against

Very neat set-up mate, nice job! Did you make the jerry holder? It's a very good alternative to get that little bit extra distance between fuel stops.

Walked into Kmart, picked up a 5 litre jerry ($10), turned around and there were assorted universal garden tool racks on a shelf ($5). The one I got I just inverted and it just so happens that it holds the 5 litre jerry perfectly!! The black square swivel bracket that would normally be screwed to the wall to allow the bracket to hang, then acts as a 'lockdown' holder on top of jerry.. I then welded extra flat steel to base to stop side way movement and used to bolt to my rear rack. Bought a $5 pull tight strap (Bunnings) to secure it all together.
Cameron run should test it out...

Wicked Tool Tube

I also made some tool tubes that Id thought Id share for those they are looking for ideas...
The first one I made back in 2011 for my first Tiger (Stolen). It was a 100 mm PVC. With screw off lid. I had no pannier racks.
The second recent one I have made was done in 90mm PVC due to having pannier racks
Both were made with some small 90 degree brackets that got from plumbing section in Bunnings to which I welded to some flat and bolted through side of pipe and then srewed up under subframe into existing thread holes. I wrapped them in 3M Carbon fibre and painted end caps. (one threaded end)
I also reinforced both with two stainless steel hose clamps around the tubes and back onto bracket.
I did a trip out to Back o Bourke with the 100mm one chocked with a full tool roll and it came through no probs at all....

The beauty of the Tiger is very few tools required.

Not an E09 but I run an E07 Rear and a MT21 up front and have found them to be a really good hard wearing combo....
