« on: December 09, 2006, 07:51:42 pm »
Took the plunge,  bought the IMS tank for my KLR today.   I've been a good dad!!! :D  :D  :D
Will only get it next feb unfortunately.
Shark was a big helping hand (again) and pointed me in the right direction (thanks again Shark).
R3300 - as I said,  I've been good this year!!!

Apparently 6 litres or so,  and added radiator protection too.
Shark has a pic.

just called them,  and apparently it comes with the fuel cap,  and some bolts for fitment.   the original tank's petcock bolts right on.
by the sounds of it it's simple enough for even me to do it.

what's everyone else buying themselves for christmas this year?

It's here and it's on!!!!!!!!!



SHe went in for her 20k service and valve check etc,  and I asked the guys at the shop to fit the tank for me at the same time (tank comes off to get to the valves).

Didn't cost me anything,  and they did the T carb mod at the same time too.   I got the parts last weekend from Hursthill Motor Spares - they didn't charge a cent for the bits I needed.

All in all a happy d7

I'm thinking this year I might just have to take the plunge...

The three things you need to fix anything in the universe: duct tape, WD-40 and a hammer.  If it moves and it shouldn't, use the duct tape.  If it doesn't move and it should, use the WD-40.  Otherwise use the hammer.

Awesome bru, this DS riding seems to make the manne really potent.
I am cancelling my race this weekend in Natal cos we are at 39 weeks and I cant risk it.
But, lets see if I cant squeeze it in with some arrangement.
