Dry Break Fuel Cap/System

Any road racers on here use a dry break fuel system? If so where did you buy it? Any recomendations? Dos? Dont's? Advice? I'm considering doing this to my race bike.

lockhart phillips used to have them as we had it on our GSXR when we won the Middleweight, Heavyweight, and overall Team Challenge National Championship in 2002. Wow that was fucking tacky.

It's used for endurance racing usually but would be nice to have for any kind of racing. LP sells a set up... Part # 211-0 #211-1. Its a requirement in MOTO-ST, I'm considering setting up my bike for this series.

Nick. Did you see BlueRidge was looking for a rider for their Kaw 650.

The MOTO ST VIR event is also a Rolex Grand Am event. It will be interesting to see how the BIG /HUGE money Grand Am guys react to the scooters. It will also be a chance for the scooter guys to network with some folks who could sponsor bike racing with pocket change.

Lefthander Chassis on Rockton Rd in Rockton, IL has actual dry brake stuff, Nick. No, none of it is cheap. They are on the internet, but I don't have their address.

I think it sucks that a dry break system is mandatory for moto-st. Why? Seriously Dave, I was talking to K3 and we can make a quick fill fuel can for next to nothing.

It's a specific safety issue that DIS has decided would be a good standard for this series.

Yeah, lots of rules. Fuel tank sizes, fill can sizes. But as it's all attainable by everyone, it's not completely awful.

And if you do set up a bike for it...well, I'm bettin' that you'll do more than one race with them, right?

Absolutely. Tell me, how do I modify the size of my fuel tank on the SV with out buying a new one, whats the best/easiest way? The rules say 4 gallon maximum. The SV tank holds 4.5 gallons.

I thought they changed the rules to 4.5 gallons.

It can be reduced many ways. A hammer will flatten areas, and you can put in a hose inside to take up space. Anything that will reduce the volume will do it.

LOL!!! Well I already have a huge dent in my gas tank, maybe I should measure to see how much gas it holds.
