Why dont you attach one of those beer caps onto your helmet, put a couple 'Big Gulp' cups in it and run plastic tubing to your tank? That would be an extra gallon or so to give you that maximum range you seek.

Are you planning on riding on a deserted stretch that doesnt have gas stations for over 150 miles? What is the justification for your inquest?

This gentleman may be interested in an extended range fuel system for a number of reasons including Iron Butt competition, Endurance racing etc. There are a couple of companies that make them; they are expensive and from what I hear, not extremely reliable to deal with.

I know...just wondering what the motive is. As far as endurance racing - you are not allowed to ADD a fuel cell, only to modify your current one (per a buddy that was endurance racing).

NOTE: If this statement is incorrect I 'plead the 5th', as that is what he told me when purchasing a tank for modification to hold and addition 1-2 gallons.

As far as Iron Butt - why would you choose a Blade to ride that?!

If it's for extended range, do what I almost did - enlarge the stock tank. I might still have the spare, cut tank lying around if you're interested.

According to their site: Fuel Safe Custom Bladders can be made in any size of shape to meet your exact specifications.

www.fuelsafe.com

Of course this gives you the problem of either getting this fuel to the original tank, or adding a FI compatible fuel pump to your cell.

The company that owns the name 'Fuel Cell' actually manufacturers custom 'fuel cell' tanks that look like the stock item, hold up to 4 gallons of additional fuel (located under the seat) and are legal for both TTF1 international endurance and WERA endurance racing.

Several people have run Iron Butt on sport bikes and placed very well.

In the January issue of Cycle Canada they always have photos of some of the strange things they spotted that summer.

A few yrs ago here is this Goldwing with a special rack made at the rear of the bike & yes behind the r/wheel to hold a special slim & flat extra/reserve fuel tank of something like 3 or 4 gallons. Never thought of what might come from the cans or crap from the tyre.

THANK YOU, much appreciated, and my cause is fairly simple, sometimes stopping for gas isnt the thing to do
