The latest bad idea

I got a Yamah SR400. This bike runs the oil in the frame deal pretty much like a Triumph and has a dry sump engine where the oil sump is held back by a checkball mostly above the level of the engine. I want to be able to run multiple tanks on this bike but the more I started at it sitting there with no tank at all the more I started to like that look. So now I'm looking at converting the hollow space in the frame to gasoline and running an external pill oil tank. I realize there wouldn't be enough fule space in the inframe tank to go any substantial distance but having it hooked up to the cab all the time would make swapping out tank much easier and give me the option of going tankless.







The bad idea bfore this one was to run a chain drive foot control. Trikopath came over and pretty much hooked that one up for me while I chatted up his girlfriend and drank the beer but I am stoked with how it came out and all it's missing now is a return spring and paint...

Humm interesting, looks like ya might need a fuel pump to draw fuel out of the downtube but as long as you lower the float in the carb it should work.
good luck.

Why lower the float?

Yea why would I change anything on the carb? The pump would only be used to feed fuel back into the main area not to pressurize the fuel feed. I'm not great at carb theory or tuning but I thought I understood the basics. Am I missing something?

Oops my bad...I was thinking of feeding the carb directly from the fuel pump rather than just transferring fuel to the upper part of the tank....if the carb was fed directly off the pump u would lower the float slightly otherwise flooding may accure due to higher fuel pressure than gravity feeding...good luck
