Your item was misrouted. The error has been corrected and every effort is being made to deliver it as soon as possible.

Apparently even leaving my packages at the neighbors is getting too difficult for the morons at my post office.

The last 5 who paid through GPS shipped out today. Meredith's white tank arrived today also. Had to squeeze my hand inside because none of the lines were hooked up. :hmmm:

Rabbit, I did not receive any sort of shipping notice and have not received a tank yet. Can you confirm mine is one of those shipped?

Has anyone had problems with fuel delivery once the fuel level is low enough that you are relying on the secondary lift pump?

I ran mine really low this past Saturday. I opened the tank and the pump was no longer submerged in gas and the bike was still running. That being said, I'm not sure how much farther I could have gone. That secondary pump splashes gas all over the place inside the tank. I do wonder how effective that is as most seems to splash away from the pump itself. Is it possible that the vacuum pump is to powerful? I'm not exactly sure since this is my first after market tank with a secondary vacuum pump.

I DON'T have a problem.

But i was wondering the same thing. How do you know the secondary pump is working (before its to late). I ended up just putting one gallon in the first time and when i turned the key i heard two pumps with stock pump running dry and then the change in tone to its' normal tone of pumping fuel. Hit the starter and it started right up. Drove around for 10 minutes and then headed to a gas station to fill it up. OK so far.

We had some issues with fuel supply Friday night, and when we topped off the tank it went away. It may have been a kink in the vacuum line that runs the pump but we wont know for sure until the fuel level goes down.

I am confused. I thought the vacume pump would not see any vacume till the engine was running???

Yeh, thought about that as soon as i hit the send key to post and been wiating all day for somebody to say something. I must just have heard the different sounds of a dry and then primed stock pump. Sounded very different because its usually submerged in fuel.

So how did the fuel get to the stock pump? Did i just get lucky and get some fuel in the bowl when i dumped in my one gallon?

What happens if you try to start the bike and that stock fuel pump bowl is dry but you still have fuel lower in the wings for the secondary pump but it can't pull the fuel up because the bike isn't running yet? It would be nice to be able to trouble shoot this on a ride if i have a problem.

Thanks,
Bruce

I have wondered that very thing. Could be that reserve is fine if when you run low you are moving. But may not want to kill the engine or take a spill.

I think there should still be enough fuel in the lines and the injection system to get the engine running until the vacuum pump kicks in.

I have been offline for a few days and out of touch, Alex had a 104 fever and I couldn't get to the shop.

Bsheet2 your tank was indeed in the last batch shipped out, did you get it yet?

Thanks Rabbit. I received my tank. Will try to put her on this weekend.


Thinking a bit more. Even if you kill the engine when vacume pump is needed, there still should be fuel in that depression area where the main pump is??? As long as you don't take a dirt nap, it may be ok.

Now that everyone has all their tanks installed are there anymore good pictures? I am interested in getting a black one and haven't seen any good pictures yet. Any black tanks installed with any graphic kit would be great!

My wishlist is now;

4.7 gallon IMS tank in black
Lynx fairing in black
Luggage rack
Shinko 244's
Get rid of handlebar vibration.
Go on a long ADV ride!

That one does look nice. I think I will have to get one and see how it looks with a graphics kit on. I am still debating between the 3.1 and the 4.7 though......

Thanks

I have both.

Most people with an X want a cleaner look. People with an R don't care so much and want the range of the 4.75. Which are you?

I have an X but ride it like a R.

If you have an OFF and scratch the panels with the 3.1 its not that big a deal.

If you you have an OFF with the 4.75 and scratch the tank it's more of an issue. I have already.

how big a deal is it? I'm cool with battle scars, not so much with fuel leaks.

Very happy!

Have used for many days of riding and is super nice not to be looking for gas and just riding.

Have fallen on left and right side-no problems!

For me, this works very well!

This tank install has been the absolute best mod for my bike. I like to do long range trips to places where fuel availability may be a issue and not having to worry is great. I also have the 3.1 gal tank and had originally planned to swap back and forth but I am comfortable enough with the big tank that I don't see me ever using the 3.1 again.
I came to the WRR from a XRR with the 7 gal tank so I guess I am used to the larger tank. Also I figure I am getting somewhere around 250-300 actual miles range, since I'm running 14/48 gearing and the odo and speedo are inaccurate.
