Great products

I have both the underseat tank and the Rottweiler doghouse and original Rottweiler intake. All three products are very high quality and holding up well. I have no abs in my bike so in my doghouse is tools and spare straps. The aux tank always gives me 2 gallons at the pump extra each time I fill up. Great work Rade and great work CPR!

Anyone else for the water tank version?

I have some Safari Tanks comming, then the water tank I hope. Add in a 2 into 1 and CJ`s storage tank and I will have some great distance/carrying capacity.

Hey guys,

I am very happy you like my tank :-)

Only be carefull and follow 100% preciselly the instruction how to connect the overflow tubes!
Here you see the only one working possibility and it has to be wired down arround the steering neck not earlier!






If anyone is intersted in the tank send me an email to radegarage@gmail.com
It costs 289EUR the full kit incl. protection, tubes and mounting...

I suggest to open new thread on this one.
Hi Rade,

I have been following this thread with great interest. My '12 990 has ABS, so add me to your '20 people list' please!

And compliments for your product and all your efforts to make this happen. Great work!

Hey BykBoy, did you make that good looking tool box where your ABS is now?
Want to shoot me the plans if you did?
I want one of these tanks, but I don't want to pay another $80 for tool storage.

or

Hey Rade, you want to fabricate up a tool box and sell as a kit?

My tool box is from CPR Fabrications. You may be able to modify the existing plastic ABS compartment from under your seat. You will have cut it up and maybe use glue to put it back together, but it could probably be done.

I found that fabricating things can be very hard and time consuming, especially if one does not have the proper tools... I consider the $89 for the CPR Dog House money well spent. Build quality is excelent and the fit is perfect.

Rade,

Any idea (or pics) of just what needs to be cut for the new back of the seat filler? How much of the rack and plastic need to be cut away? Thanks!

I would be interested in seeing that also. Just going out to begin fitting mine today.

For the overflow, is it just secured to the headstock ?

This is how I did mine.



The line on the left side of the photo follows the sub-frame on the right side of the bike, then cuts across to the left side of the bike and joins the two other fuel drain hoses just above the clutch slave cylinder.

Make sure you turn off the shut-off valve between the main tanks and the underseat tank. If you keep it open, you will lose fuel through the breathers.

Best practice is to run the main tanks until the low fuel light goes on, then open the valve to the underseat tank and let it flow back into the main tanks.
