    Maybe prefer this to a jerrycan hung off the side (or a spare bladder)

    That looks good mate, that will do the trick 
    Thinking the same stropp, looks good to me.
    Good stuff T man.
    Hope we can make a few days of it, unless, I get a job, in between.
    Ya know, that red ain't that bad at all.

    Red bikes go faster?
    Couple of little issues - need to relocate the coil, the throttle cables just kiss the tank on full right hand lock and the petcock is directly over the rear spark plug. May have to get right angle plug leads or ends. 
    Oh, and after the slim Sporty tank it makes the old girl look a little pregnant, but it does give me an extra six litres which should be enough.

    Cheers, Will

    Will get a right angled petcock that should solve the plug lead issue, the throttle cables won’t be an issue unless you are pedantic and you could do what I did and do away with the coil and leads altogether buy getting these if they make them for your bike the coils go on the plugs, does away with leads too.

    Hey Stropp, great looking coils and would solve the problem, but (don't you hate it when there is a but) they only have them for 07 and up EFI. Mine is a carbed 04.
    I have a pingel right angle petcock. The issue there is the adaptor between the tank thread (made for the Delphi EFI) and the petcock brings it right down to the HT lead. A right angle plug cap will fix it. 
    And you're right, the throttle cables are the least of my worries. That issue I will ignore.
    PS: great looking ride you got there

    All good mate, bummer about the coils, but yep right angle plug leads will suffice and be cheaper too ??

    A couple of my mates are in a BDR group leaving Tassie shortly for the run to Darwin. Vic first to meet another group, then Darwin and I think they’re coming home via the east coast. It looks like a great trip for a good cause.
