Excellent work! what is the capacity of the tank? is that a 929/954 gas tank as a shell?

forgot to ask, how did you resolve the fuel pump issue? How about venting?(the fuel pump can collapse the tank, but I'm sure you are aware of that..) (oh and I'm not trying to troll or fish in your thread :D )

:notworthy just filled er up 7litres but have yet to put baffle foam in so will be a bit less will give exact details when done,
we've got the Southern100 coarse,Jurby South Road coarse and plenty of other stuff,you can't beat the mountain though as there is no speed limit and its fookin fast :rockon ,
the tank dummy is off a 600rr,fuel pump is mounted on a ring with bolts through welded to the bottom of the tank ala standard,there is a breather pipe off the front with a one way valve going to a catch bottle mounted on the snorkel, will drain fuel take tank off and post some more pics...

the rads used are : Spondon rc30 race rad(top rad)you could also use a vfr750/nc30/rvf400 with a little fettleing! , husquavarna?510/610?motox thing!(side rad), sp2 oil cooler with compressed/swagged fittings cut off and relocated with dash08 goodridge 810 oil hose.
The electrics have to be relocated as per Thorsten but i squeezed mine in as shown below,the pc is not mounted properly yet,i had the electrics located like this with side rads, the pc was mounted by the bracket for the overflow pipes holder? and the rectifyer down there also,and the front coil was mounted off the original oil cooler bracket

when i get the dummy pulled in tighter there is not a lot of gap (like an inch or so) so i was thinking of trying to get it sealed with some foam or rubber? not weighed the tank yet but it feels like at least a third of the standard tank, i've no batteries in my scales so will have to get some later and weigh it now!

Hey rrr,

Is there Any way to make a fuel cell like yours but alittle smaller, to be able to use with the OEM fuel cell? I'm very interested in that IF It could be made to work.... I want More Fuel capacity!
Approx. how much would you sell the "UnderSeat Fuel cell" for, if you were going to make extras too sell?

Thanks for posting Your pictures here, Awesome to see others still pushing the RC51 envlope!:clapper

You don't by any chance start her up inside do you?:wacky :D Hahahahaa

Peace Jeff
