Sub Tanks

Recommended Posts

Ive got complete setups on the bench ready to go.

If you want one, there's no waiting...

Pm me if youre interested.

:)

If you have a CRF you need these tanks.....I got em' and they are plusher than plush...

Do you have any pics you can post? I know a lot of people run this setup, but I was always curious how much weight they add?

Not enough to care about.....they are very light actually. The increased control is worth it. Hey, if you worry about weight that much, a good dump the night before riding will lose more weight than those tanks... :)

I have just recived my 05 and do the subtanks help a lot on those forks ?

I made them for my 04 and it felt ok, made them more plush in the initial stroke.

but in several tests they say that the forks on the 05 is very good, is that right :)

I haven't driven it yet, the weather is way to bad here in Denmark

You should shorten those lines, Rap. Looks like you got a whole lot of stuff going on up front. . . :)

It doesn't look so busy with the numberplate installed.....you need the flexibility in the lines so as to not put too much pressure on the fittings and to account for different locations...I guess.

Actually, youre the first guy Ive seen mount the valve right in the fork like that. I used an elbow and it allows the valve to rotate around and then the line rolls straight up and makes a nice loop and goes straight back down.

I'll take some new shots of mine, kinda show ya they way I did it...

Some of you guys will notice that on my system there is a flare fitting going into the tanks in addition to the valves. I found its nothing more than added wieght and no easier to mess with so I went with a cleaner setup on the setups I sell.

I think shorter lines and a right angle valve from your forks would clean it up way nicer and keep those lines from getting trashed in a crash. I personally had my lines rip off where they meet the fork with my Enzo set up and saw another do the same thing. :)

If my bars werent so far forward, I could do that. But with my super delux ultra custom mega forward bar mounts, the bar pad wouldnt allow the line do what it would need to do with a 90 degree fitting coming out of the valve. And some guys have the forks spun around so that the vents are to the rear of the bars, and if thats the case, you need the lines to be slightly longer to get over the bars.

Unlike the Enzo setup, the valves move around, so even if you get up close and personal with Mother earth, breaking the fitting off generally doesnt happen.

The reason why I've got 45's coming out of my tanks is, I needed the straight fittings for another system I was selling to a guy and I had the 45's laying around and Im not all that picky about how it looks on my bike, as long as it works, ya know? :p

I'm funny that way, I'll do stuff really nice and clean for somebody else...my own stuff on the other hand... :)

Very nice, nonetheless! How about some part numbers. . . :) Just kidding! I had sub's on my YZF, but choose not to run them on my CRF. . . :)

I tell you what, if I was going back to sub tanks, I'd sure ASK you to make 'em for me. Probably save a couple hundred $'s. . . :)
