Insulated under the tank, hopefully will help prevent the tank (and my knees) heating up so much.
Unfortunately I had to remove it from the top of the tank as there isnt 3mm of clearance between the tank and airbox :(
I replaced the top section with self adhesive 50mm wide aluminium foil instead without any foan backing.

Ergo seat and pillion plate went on and this might work out ok.
Seat is 30mm taller and seems far more comfy.
Pillion plate will just be really handy for fuel or luggage.

Ill see what I can sort out with a Nomad 7.5 litre tank.

Ive been thinking about fuel range options and was considering fitting up a 30 litre 1290 SA tank until I found out the price of the required parts being close to 6k! :shock:

Another option is the Camel tank.
Nicely made and integrates well but just plain ugly as are all the underslung rear tanks.

At only 6 litres and $700, its a lot of money considerin a 5 litre jerry is $20 which is what Im using now.

Image

Maybe the Nomad 7.5 litre tank at $200 might work ok :ne_nau:
I wa trying to get the dimensions of the Nomad but they arent on the website, they only show a width :(

http://www.mx1australia.com.au/index.ph ... roduct/146 Might be another option, not as intergrated but should be easy to install remove as needed. Dimensions are 330x230x200mm 6L capacity $189

or http://www.mx1australia.com.au/index.ph ... roduct/148 shown as a front mount tank but can be fitup pretty much anywhere on the bike. $189 , http://www.thumpertalk.com/topic/962478 ... fuel-tank/ shows the tank fitted to the side/rear

Rotopax also work well

Side mount to pannier racks (?), or top mount to the existing flat rack ...

If they made one that could be permanently mounted and plumbed in, Id consider it.
To use them you have to unpack the bike as it uses valuable real estate and inevitably something is packed on it.
I wasnt planning on using pannier racks at all but that might change.
ATM, my jerry is more convenient than a Rotopax.

Good point re' unpacking

Hard to know what the ideal solution will be - or whether you're going to be able to improve materially from the plastic jerry can in the duffle with the various half-measures available

You do a lot of long trips, so this is a big thing to get right - for a lot of us, extra fuel is something to have up the sleeve every now and then - I guess you don't know whether Safari or others have a replacement front tank for this bike in train ... ?

Dont know of anyone with plans for the main tank.
The precision, the aesthetics, the fit, is all WAY out of the dodgy brothers league and they have stated that they will not be even attempting to make a tank.
They do have a rear tank in progress but its just disgusting and not worth consideration in my opinion.
At the moment the jerry just sits in the mid compartment of the rear bag. Its easy to get to and no unpacking needed.
BUT, I would like a better alternative with a bit bigger capacity than the 5 litres.

I've been thinking about this for a bit as well - same boat as everyone else.
I was thinking of mounting a quick disconnect to the bottom of my 7ltr Rotapax tank on LH pannier and then have a small 12v pump to transfer into into main tank as it was annoying the hell out of me unpacking.

I do like the space utilisation that the camel tank uses so with the 6.2 of the camel tank and the 7.2 of the Rotapax should be good.

it is a work in progress - the next best thing to riding the 1190

Got the Hi Fender working last night with the TT crash bars
