    I’ll be doing this soon as well, throwing in a Walbro concurrently while in there.

    Thanks for the pics.

    I appreciate the pictures because I hope to add my 6 gallon auxiliary fuel tank to the back of my R3T. I did this on my previous bike, a Kawasaki Nomad. It looks like I will be able to add the fitting connecting the line from the auxiliary fuel tank to the main fuel tank there between the end of the float and what ever that white electrical connector is for. Thanks for the pictures.

    Buy a Mahle KL-145 filter instead of the $54 triumph filter. The Triumph filter is a KL-145 with Triumph painted on it.

    Did you, will you, use the same hoses that were on the old filter?

    Thanks,

    VRs

    PS If I do the filter change......while I'm in there...... anyone have suggestions on a fix to make my faulty gas gauge read full when full and empty when empty......right now it reads full when full and empty when still half full.....????? Maybe an adjustment to the float arm? Thanks.

    I will do that. I have a number of other mods I am doing before I get to that one. It may be a while because my time to do the mods I want to do is limited. For the tank, I will have to build the base for it be carried by the luggage rack, run the line with a filter and valve from the aux tank to the main tank, remove the fuel pump (which your pictures wonderfully showed :thumbsup:) and drill the hole and attach the fitting for the hose from the auxiliary tank.

    I have see reports of how others have slightly bent the rod to which the float is connected to correct this. Do a search for these threads or maybe someone can tell you which thread it was ;).

    Interestingly, I just figured out when my fuel light came on with my last tank of fuel because I was curious about this. It came on with 1.33 gallons of fuel in the tank by my calculations. This is right where the manual said it would come on.

    Dunno...my fuel gauge hasn't worked since one day when I ran it very low. The odometer now serves double duty!:rolleyes:

    I am hoping that the FuelBot 2.0 will be offered for sale again when the inventor/manufacturer gets enough time to do so (and I do understand time constraints). This is a device that is able to measure actual fuel usage and tell you actual mpg & volume/distance to empty. No more guessing. Do a search for this device to learn more.
