    Stop by anytime.
    Tank is being a beotch. Had to slightly modify the Spark fuel pump set up. It wouldnt compress enough...had to gain another 1/4" of compression. And had to spin the bottom half of the set up 180* so the pump hoses wouldnt rub on the inside of the tank. All while still having the fuel gage float still operate correctly.
    Fun!

    Finally done with SOB tank.
    It turned out pretty cool, I think. Instead of making a special fuel pump "holder downer"....I just cut out the top
    of the OEM tank and bolted it to the top of my creation with 10 sexy screws. Throw a gasket in there and should be GTG.

    Just so everyone knows, I cut out all the pieces of aluminum, from cardboard templates I made. Went down to my friend at
    Reno KTM, and held the pieces in place while he tacked and welded them together. So, I cant take full credit. That how it mostly happens
    on anything that needs welding....







    One last hurdle with fabricating. I have to figure something out...then Ill start showing pictures of my next idea I have planned.
    Stay tuned


    Oh, and by the way...I was way off on my capacity guess at 5.25gal. Its a whopping 7.75gal !!
    One good thing is with 5gal in the tank, all the fuel is way below the bondline. Which equals a low center of gravity.
    The lower the better with this top-heavy motor!

    I love your tank 54216742x better than my setup, we're almost the same capacity too.

    So I finally stuck mine on a scale and in a test tank......

    Have you weighed yours yet?

    Did you baffle it at all to help prevent sloshing?
