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.
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.

Got delivery this morning, not an absolute gem , but as far as I concerned a cracker , get rid of those plastics (previous owner hit a pheasant), runs sweet as a nut , but will get to grips with the rest:D
I'm new to this forum and thought it would be nice to put some of my blade picture into one place.
I owned the blade for around 4 years, purchased it off a friend who dropped it on his first ride out (Low sided)
Please see the picture below when I bought it and after I repaired it...
Sometimes it flows and sometimes it doesn't. Like a lunkhead I let my '97 sit for about ten years. I didn't plan to ignore it so long but....Full tank with stabilizer since I expected to fire it up after four months not 120. A couple of weeks ago I cleaned the tank with vinegar and soaked...
I made a post about two weeks ago about my bike not running right because my stator and rectifier were fried, i replace them both and today i go to start the bike and now my fuel pump relay won't click. I checked the hot wire from the relay harness and hot wired it from my battery and my pump...
