@ BuRP
I have fitted the Rade tank with the option of a fuel tap but its impossible to access the tap once the tank is installed as it is located behind the frame rail.

next time you pass, Dennis, I would like to photograph/video your tap-placement for feedback to RADE, thanks  :thumleft:

Yo Mayhem,

I'll agree that the tap isn't easily accessed, but with a bit of fiddling it is possible.
I don't mind, one would need to do this only when the moon is blue  ;)

I'll have a look tonight if 'my' access to it is perhaps 'bettered' because I took off all environmental rubbish, all I got left is tiny dual dongles tucked away (the Rottweiler kit).
If someone wants to know, I did this for reliability purposes, and it also removes a little weight.
A BIG added advantage though is (in fact, perfect hindsight lol, this could be a reason in itself) that the RH radiator flows more air now due to the absence of the large carbon canister which sits behind it. This I noticed too because the fan came on less/later, however this has changed because I mounted a (Suzuki) thermoswitch with a lower switching temperature - which gives a bigger thermal reserve.

Will take a piccie or two for you also Chris, got your mail  ;)

Mayhem,
I can easily open & close the small KTM fueltap by rotating the knurled head with one finger inbetween vertical frametube & tank.
And no, no extra space there due to the removal of the enviro rubbish.

Chris,

I can reach and turn mine with one finger, however I can reach it from either side of the frame tube..... use 2 fingers, one from each hand!
I bet yours will, once it turns, become 'unstuck', mine really turns easily.
Oh, cold bike hmm?  :P

I have been thinking about this - why not just fit another inline fuel tap down stream where easily accessible and leave the tank one open? That is what I have on my HP2 underseat tank. Like this one:

@ BiG DoM
The Rade kit comes with an inline shut off valve that would be installed if you use there method of tapping into the fuel tank.

Hi Guys,

We are the distributors of the Guglatech range of filters.

The filter is indeed ready for shipment for the Rade Garage tank and for the Husky 701 standard fuel cap.

I have been giving some contradictory info the last few days, but only because I wanted to test the product before release, but the secret is out! HAHAHA

Drop us a mail via www.guglatech.co.za or contact your local dealer for assistance. Stock should arrive within the next 3 weeks from Italy.

R

Hi Guys,

Just an update. We are still awaiting shipment from Italy on the new 701 filters. With the strike at post office and the European Summer break we have been way behind schedule. Sorry for the inconvenience. We will update you guys asap.

R

Hi Everyone,

Filters for the 701 have arrived eventually. We have the 701 Key and Screw Cap. Rade Garage front tank filter. In Line Fuel Filter kit for 701/690. Fuel Filter Elimination Kit for 690/701.

Sorry for the delay!

Thanks Vans & Chris,

and Riaan, I'll be buying from Chris' Baksteen because I need some other stuff as well.
Simpler for me that way and for you same difference I suppose.

Chris, I've already sent an email to Jan - out of office but it'll be handled by someone else - for a 701-combo.
I will measure/compare 2 other tank-necks tonight (both with Acerbis screwcap) to see if they'll accept the Rade Tank's sock, and if so (which I expect) then I'll want two for them too.
The reason for me posting this here is I really want them, so please don't sell them quick to bliksems like Mayhem/BigDom/W@nted etc  :P ;)

Talking about characters, Amsterdam, these things work: no water in your tank, and very fine fines only, the braaiwood stays in the sock.
I mention this because it would seem you ride the less ridden road, with the obvious nottooobvious refuelling places... perhaps do your bakkie-owning friends a fave and get one also?
Perhaps they'll become even better friends then, less chance you'll phone them with coordinates of stuck-you at 1 in the morning  8) :thumleft:

No definitely not BMW  ::)  It is a common part - lots on eBay but very often available from lawnmower shops and boating shops. Cheap as chips and  never seen one fail.

Likewise - did mine about 10 days ago and just returned from a week in Lesotho for the Roof. Work great - yes slightly slower fill but worth the peace of mind. Awaiting my Golan serviceable external fuel filter so I can eliminate the internal one then will be done (BTW I am not buying the Gugla elimination kit which is just stupid money for a small brass pipe connector and two clips or their fat filter).
