Xl tank looks better on there anyway.
I'm not sure, but don't ask Brodie.

Way to many build and half done projects to list here.
Sr250, Gs750, Z50A, XV1100, A10, Z160A.

You, sir, are right.  I was worried the XL tank was too small for the pig of a motor the 750's are.  Not the case.  It fits the profile much better.

What about widening it so from the top it covets more of the motor but frome the side stays the same?

I decided to get a better seat hinge.  It's still not the top dollar hinge, but it should suit my needs.  One thing, though, I didn't like about it is the hinge pin was a basic nut and bolt.  Nothing fancy, and certainly nothing nice looking.  So instead, I upgraded it a bit by machining a delrin hinge pin. 



Sometimes it's a bunch of effort for the simplest things.





The pin stays stationary, while the hinge rotates around it and it will hold in an upright position, which will make working under the seat easy.

Ain't that the truth - the last 5% of a project takes ten times longer than it took to do the original 95%...

After digging around, I realized the oil inlet has to be gravity fed.  The pump does not pull oil from the reservoir.  So, add another bung to the bottom and now we have it right...
