    This is a question for the 'Adventure Riders'. How do you haul your X-tra fuel?
    I have an O-size Acerbis tank. But, what if You need more?
    What do you use? How do you carry it?

    I had something similar when I had my KTM and used to take them in the woods with me in a pack. Worked great!
     
  7. I have two; both hold one liter. They are MSR brand. I carry them on my 'tard when I'm not sure of the distance I'll be traveling. They have never leaked, but I am careful to leave an air space to allow for expansion. Good for 30+ extra miles on my little 250.






    .
     
  8. Depends on the situation. I've done the 1/2 gallon of gas in a plastic milk jug in a back pack to the 1.5 gallon gas can on a dedicated mount to the tail of the bike. And then there's everything inbetween.
     
  9. I saw a bike at the Backfire and the whole rear fender and side covers (all 1 piece) was a fuel tank. Looked like it could hold at least 5 gal.
     
  10. buy a really over sized aftermarket gas tank :)
     
  11. I also use the MSR bottles. 2) 1.5 liter, in the panniers, NEVER leaks.

    Cause sometimes, you're on roads where there aren't fuel stations every 10-100 miles.

    I bought the biggest one I could find!:mrgreen:
     
  13. A small rear fender rack with a Rotopax is what I'm looking to do on my XR650R with the big Clarke tank. Just in case.

    55 bucks!!! HOLY CRAP!
     
  15. Since I have a deathly fear of burning to death, carrying fuel in a backpack or held down with a bungee cord doesn't give me warm fuzzies.

  16. I put a 2 gallon can of gas on my luggage rack and the tank holds 4.5 gallons. Only use it riding from Portland to Vegas as I like to take HWY 50 and there are very few chances for gas inbetween. Also HWY 50 is so deserted you can go fast and my milage suffers as a result.

    Normally however the 4.5 gallons lasts for 200-225 miles depending on responsible throttle control. :)
     
  17. I've heard that Willy carries a spare gas can on the tail section of his bike (near the flamable material next to the exhaust...).
