Good info. Did you plug the original breather hole or just keep it and T it in? Roughly how much farther rearward did you move it? I like your comment about faster equalization when filling. Some have mentioned it can be agonizingly slow to fill which is why I've yet to install my subframe tank (gen 3) I bought 3 years ago. Any issues with stressing the fuel pump with the subframe tank installed?

Breather still at original spot.

The biggest problem with the equalisation is the routing of the breather hose. I originally had it going down then back up to meet at the main tank breather. What I have done now is run the breather tube along the seat rail into the airbox and out further up where it runs along rad shroud. This helps equalise heaps quicker but not as quick as removing this screw. I have a hole in the rear plastics so I can access this screw. Now there is no hesitation in equalising and I gain some fuel.

Stressing fuel pump? Geez no.

Get that tank fitted.

Iíll get some pics up when I get back from my high country trip in a few days.
Thanks from Dualsport4ever and keener

70 degree tank

Chris,
Count me in if you plan on building a Tao for the 70 degree crowd.

Thank you,
Rich

Yes please

I'm close to pulling the trigger on a safari but would much rather have a subframe tank. I'll watch this for a while before I do anything.

Why don’t some of you guys give converting the subframe into a tank a go? Nothing to loose. There has been recent discussion on the success of these. The latest 570 I have purchased has had the subframe converted successfully with no leaks
