I ordered a Clarke 4.7 Gallon tank for my 650L last Sunday from just gas tanks. I also ordered a 55 pilot jet from thumper talk on Monday. I had installed a dynojet kit last summer but I was never happy with the off idle performance. Both the tank and the jet came on Wednesday and I got around to installing them today. The tank install was pretty easy and the pilot jet was easier still. I hate that it is so stormy here right now and I can't take the bike out for a spin. It's like giving a kid a Christmas present and not letting him play with it.




I'll post pics of the bike with the new tank after I get some new batteries for the camera.

Well I got three pics before the batteries died. First one is kind of fuzzy.

Storm passed last night so i got to take it for a ride. The off idle hesitation is gone and the bike feels more powerful in the lower RPM range as well. I like the tank so far also. I filled it all the way up and I really didn't notice any difference in handling.

Thanks, did you ever figure anything out about those thin spots? I looked over mine before I mounted it but I couldn't find anything wrong.

I got an email back from clarke and they told me that its normal and if it isnt leaking now, it wont.:confused:

So, i'll run it and if it burns me up.... It'll be called martinfan/clarke manufacturing!:excuseme:

I'm glad you called the factory Martinfan. I would think that something as consistent as that must be from normal manufacturing processes of some sort. As I mentioned, my home made experiments give me the impression that the dimples are not very thin at all:prof: . Furthermore, since they are in an area that really does not touch or rub anything else I wouldn't think they'd develop a leak. I'm not worried about it at all.:confused:
