What changes did you have to make to the Vulcan 800 tank or 750 mounts for the VN800 tank to mount securely?Dianna said:We've been looking at the auxilary furl tanks also. Problem is.. where or how to tie it into the tank so we can just flip a switch to refill. Otherwise it is just a gas can, right?
I have an advantage since I have the sidecar so carrying one won't be a problem, would just like to refuel on the go *S*
Fair points about the tanks and the quality of the after-market ones. One would assume that in order to get DOT approval, some crash testing and basic safety of the fuel tanks and other components had to be done by the manufactuer - courtesy of the Yugo if anything else.free wheel-e said:in essence all tanks are outside the frame, so they are all rolling bombs. just a note, some of the auxillary tanks are race car quality in material and structure. i would bet they are safer than stock tanks. something to think about. remember you get want you pay for.
ride safe, john
The gravity feed model is in use in the Cessna aircaft - should work just as well on our machines, too. Typically, you have an elevation change of about 3.5 feet in a Cessna, but that should not matter. A different challenge are the forces imposed by acceleration and other maneuvers during riding.IASKRU12 said:From the little research I have done, if the aux tank is at or above the same level as your main gas tank, like the luggage rack, you can let gravity do the work. If you want to have the aux tank in your hack, you would need to get a fuel pump.
