A question as Iím curious by your solution for the fuel tank, did you retain the spare on the safari door and put the civilian one back under?

Finally got a chance to take a decent photo today - 97 litres all up:



I had the opportunity as the 5 speed was going in!



Went for a drive after fitting - it was just phenomenal  ;D This thing goes like stink. The R380 is such a nice box; smooth shifts and perfect ratios for the application.

A fragrance you'll come to love.  :-* Pity they don't bottle it for Christmas.

I see a new exhaust pipe, too, of the kind normally fitted by KLR in the Turbo installs. Could that be the source of much of the Stink?  ::)

BTW, I think you've now found the new name for your Defrentie; "The Stink"
