Bigger tank

Has anybody ever found a bigger fuel-tank to put on the vulcan???
Would like some heavy duty saddle time.

This has been discussed more than a few times here and there is nothing that can just be bolted in without some kind of modifications to the tank.
There have been several who've mounted an auxiliary fuel tank.

Well, Diana has an aux. tank, I believe mounted in her side car.
And IIRC, someone else had one mounted on the rear luggage rack.
If you do go this route, just remember that our fuel system is gravity fed, so the tank will need to be mounted higher than the carbs.
That is, unless you use the tank as just a place to hold the fuel, and rig up some way to pump it into the gas tank once it's needed.

I am surprised that would even be legal running a tank on the luggage rack, it's a good thought though, where else could it go.
Thanks hyper.

Go to the gallery Chappy, and click on Modifications. kruzer has some side and rear pics there of his auxillary tank mounted on the rear luggage rack. Very proffessionally done looking job.

you can make a fuel cell like the ones stated above and just either make it look nice with metal work or fiberglass an enclosure to cover it up... for me the 750 is a good bike for doing my daily duties... if i was going to go for a good cruise id get a larger bike... but thats coming from a 6'2 325lb guy..
