cruise control on a gpr and a resrve gas tank
just throwing a post up on some stuff i did on my ski im sure i will be bashed but here it goes....2000 gp1200r i wanted my ski to look 100% stock
switched the motor over to premix so i decided to make my resrve line in my main fuel tank my "on" line on the fuel select switch. ran the oil tank as my "reserve" line on the selector. why lose the extra 1.3 gallons for no reason
i went to primer so in the little glove box i put the primer pump on the back flat part..... so i ran my "main" line from my gas tank right into the primer pump. which is completly hidden
since i have the primer now im stuck with a choke assembly on the handlebars and since my wrist always hurts after about 20 minutes of light chop riding since i have to hold in the gas... so i usually let go and use my left hand to gas it not fun so i made a metal plate and it attach's to the top carb bolt spaced slightly for the T handle. since i dont have oil injection i have a spare hole on the throtle link so i ran the choke cable in there attached to my plate and now i have cruise control.... im going to have to try adjusting it a few time i only want it to go about 25mph
so now bash away about my cruise control JEALOUS YOU ARE

Sounds like it'll work, but make sure you use your lanyard. You'd hate to fall off and watch your riderless ski ride off into the sunset.

that cruise control is a great idea, I think I will do that as well.As far as the primer location goes I still need a place for my wallet and keys so I didn't put it there. I put mine under the seat next to the servo motor for the P/V's that way when I lift the seat off the fuel vapor dissipates and no risk og going boom.

the cruise control thing is going to work great literally 1 little piece of metal. i just hope my kill switch doesnt fail if i fall off. thats another reason i want it to only hit about 25mph so i know somebody im riding with can catch it if i fall off and the switch fails (which happened to me once on a gp) i can probably still get in there and take a picture of it if anybody wants to see it for refernce to make there own

I like that idea of utilizing the oil tank. ...especially on the older model carbed GPR's. I dont think the efi guys can utilize this. Thanks for sharing broits ideas like this that keep the passion for the GPR alive longer

BTW, using the oil tank is a good idea and has been discussed before, but remember that the return is still going to dump the fuel back into the tank. So IF you ever have to use the fuel in the oil tank you better get somewhere that has fuel FAST.
