Thanks Craig, I'm pretty happy with it...although I will add a second centre fastener to make it symmetrical. The one fitted is 1cm off centre.


Cheers,
Chris.

Average 21.6klm/lt Jock. That was on an all encompassing three state ride/adventure....about 3,000klm.

10+3.


Not big enough!




.......I had my own main/reserve tubes for the old one....tank held just on 21 litres and I set it at 15 for the main. That gave me about 120klm safe reserve.
