You think that tank is expensive. Ask any KTM owner that has bought the 10gallon Safari tanks what they spent. That should make you feel better. Great looking bike and setup.. Hoping to be a KLR owner some day..

Rebuild kit for the Mikuni transfer pump.

Winderosa makes this rebuild kit for the pump.I found this one at a local shop for $5.99.
I installed it in my original pump and verified it works.

I guess it's safe to say if you only filled the IMS with 6 gallons of gas it would weight in at about 48lbs.

About 11.5 lbs lighter then the stock tank with Happy trail bars.

That sounds about right.

400 to 500 miles a tank,depending on how you ride.

The last time I checked a full tank I hit reserve at 420 miles.
So I could have hit 500 on that tank.
That was mixed road riding.

Me and my wife each got one for our klr hers had a leak on the lower RH mounting bolt IMS shipped us a brand new tank express and free of charge providing we drill holes in the tank to make it un usable

Each bike takes frequent naps while out and about and been up to prudoe bay I would highly recommend the tank it helps to put some weight back on the front wheel with a full camping load and when your not camping there's no reason to fill it the full 10 gallons

Only in that little reservoir area where the dam and petcock live?

I'm wondering if you still use the reserve function, and how many miles have you got, once you switch to reserve?

I know I would still have the same pattern of refueling, no matter how large my tank is. I'm just used to seeing how many miles I can squeeze out, and going to the petrol station the least amount possible.

The idea of only using the lower half of the tank (when not "adventure touring") for saving weight and lower CGI, would mean I would not be able to calculate mileage by resetting the trip meter, and I'd never really know how much gas I had (in the black IMS tank). I'd have to shine a flashlight into the tank, or rock the bike and try to gauge the sloshing sounds.

If they went to the trouble of the fuel pump, they might as well have installed a gas gauge. Or a clear strip up the side (like on some oil bottles) to see the level on the black one.
