Re: Connecting Safari front tank with subframe tank?
It's a lot better with pictures. Here we go:

This is the 70D aluminium fuel pump housing. I've replaced the 70D blue curved hose with a straight black one. On the picture, it the bigger hose that runs toward the top of the picture. On the right side of the fuel pump housing, you can see the new 1/4" fuel spigot that I tapped into the housing. The 1/4" black hose runs toward the front of the bike to connect with the Safari tank.

This is the left side of the bike. From the Safari tank left side, I ran a 1/4" hose to a brass "T" that connects the right side of the tank and the hose that reaches the fuel pump housing on the first picture.

This is another view of the left side. The brass "T" is located near the cam chain manual tensionner (blue nut). To easily remove the Safari tank when I don't need it, I added a fuel quick disconnect between the fuel pump housing and the brass "T".
Hope this helps ! This setup has over 3000 miles and 50 hours of hardcore terrain and hardcore riding. Absolutely not problems with this setup.
