    Ultra 260 fuel pick-up

    Do you still need to get r-d deep fuel pick up part for the ultra 260. 2010 ? To make the most of the fuel tank.

    This issue has been batted around since 2007 and I think the answer is the extender may allow you to draw the last 1.7 gallons or so in the tank. I say "may" because there has been no real world side by side test on water to prove it. Moreover, the difference (if it exists) may be insignificant as a practical matter for most riders.

    100km + rides coming in on empty over rough water, you will be happier having the mod, depends how much you want to push it. We ran two ultras side by side on flat water and found it did gain kms, so we modded both. I am by far no expert but it does seem to give you more usable fuel and is easy to do. When you buy one order some R&D SC tools as well. All cheap insurance.

    If your question is are tank and pump the same in 2010 ultras then the answer is yes. The pickup extension is good piece of mind knowing you will cover extra distance once the low fuel warning goes off.

    the R&D pick up gets you a 1/4 closer to all the available left in the ultra tank

    if you want to get all your fuel you have to cut and shut the fuel pump bracket and lower the complete pump assy into the tank its self
    then you can get ever last bit

    I stand corrected on the "no real world testing." I guess it has been done.

    But 1/4 of what? If its 25% of 4 gallons, thats not much.

    this is only from memory as it been a while since i played with an ultra so the numbers could be off a little so i will generalise a bit

    the stock pick up is 4 inches from the bottom of the tank ( because kawasaki was too lasy to make a new one and just used the left over 15f set up)
    its a fu(king big tank
    thats a schit load of fuel left
    the R&D pick up is what 1 inch longer

    i had an ultra that could suck down 5 gallons in 10min-12min and was very sensitive to the fuel load
    so yeah i needed a proper deep fuel pick up.

    That's funny! Sounds like 5 miles less paddling!

    Some of my motorcycle riding buddies would laugh at me carrying a 1/2 liter bottle of fuel on my bike. After all what good is 17 oz. of fuel in the scheme of things? I explained that it was 9-10 miles closer to camp if we ran out.

    That's nothing to joke about.
