I am adding a very nice 3.5 gallon Auxilliary tank that sits on the passenger seat. I am putting on a three switch that lights up when on and sits on the break cylinder for a selenoid switch to open the fuel line when I am moving. I also am putting in an in line filter. The only thing I need is a bulk head fitting. I would appreciate it if anyone has the name of a place or web site that I can get one...thank you lee

I question how safe these auxillary tanks are if involved in an accident, it seems to me that even though they may be strapped down , the potential for breaking the connecting line to the tank and having gas spill all over a rider would not be a good thing ! I wonder about the construction of the auxillary tank itself and how it would withstand an accident ? I have never had one or seen one , but it seems to me they can't be very safe !

Things are swell, early spring this year. Been riding already. This week Winter has reared it's head again....No Snow but low 20's nite40's-50's day & windy as all heck.

Hope you can find what you need in McMaster.

Fossil I will give them a try as well. I am trying to get this set up so I can use it on a IB ride in three weeks. Texas 1000/24 and 1500/24 if I succeed.

That sounds like trying to run 26 miles after swimming 2.6 miles and biking for 100 miles. Makes me tired thinking about it.

I decided to have everything installed by the dealer. The bike with all the extras and the extended insurance policy for repairing it for the next eight years ran me 30+ grand....so after seeing a utube wing fire ...I decided to have professionals do the work. I am getting the brake cyclinder switches installed to activate the selenoid to open the line, I have quick releases on the vent tube and the main line, and a fuel filter as well. I will have it back by Thursday.... I am very excited about the set. I will be able to remove the tank and not have to take off the seat to do it. I will post photos when I get it back...if you guys are interested...

Sorry I have been riding...I am 82 this month........

Looks like the perfect passenger to me. Quiet and always ready to go a bit farther. And you get a little back rest out of it.

Might be a bit out there Lee, but if you don't have any luck with the places mentioned, check with an aircraft supply shop. They put ferry tanks in planes for long distance transport so that may be a source for your bulkhead.

Tony sorry I have not posted them yet.. I did trial the tank on the 1500 miles in 22hours and 43 minutes ...it worked great. I would hit the button and it took aboiut 25 minutes to drain into the main tank. I was very happy with the out come. I will post the photos as soon as I get some free time. I love the way the wing handles..I know I made the right choice in bikes. I also tried three other bikes Victory vision.....Bmw 1800 gtl....HD...:D I think I lost a kidney from all the vibration.... <u next mod will be Pias....
