EXTRA TANKS FOR 690
« on: February 12, 2012, 08:51:18 am »
 STUPID QUESTION .When the 2 rallyraid tanks are fitted up front, do you still fill the rear tank or does the petrol automatically fill from the front ?

If you fill the front tanks it drains through to the back tank till it equalises (takes a couple of minutes), you can then raise the front up, put the front wheel on the Pump island then fill the front tanks if you have packed over your rear filler cap. only issue i have found, is that when all three tanks are full, if you park your bike with the front facing uphill on a slope, you get fuel running out the rear tank breather. remember to adjust the compression and rebound on your front forks! As you are carrying a lot more weight up front.
