Gas bladder

I need a set of soft bladders that can be tied together like saddlebags, the lighter the better

(2) 2 litre bladders would be nice

Thanks

I guess it's two milk jugs tied together with my boot laces

Oh well, won't be the first time, but I sure did invision some nice bladders that I could sling across my tank.

I have used MSR fuel bottles in tank panniers and that worked quite well, no danger of breaking them if you crash.

Good looking ride

I'm already packing three 33's, but I'll be in Northern India/Nepal and some of the locations I want to go require more petrol than I can carry in the small cannisters not to mention that they take a lot of space. I'll be riding a Indian bike, a Bajaj 180 and larger tanks are not an option,.Tte upside is that these bikes get great mileage, but when you head north there is no quarantee of available gas for the return trip so I thought of a bladder, I've seen folks use them in South America but haven't been able to locate any in either the states or India.

PS: I'm willing to rig if anybody has any viable ideas

Thanks

there's some pictures and information about "collapsible fuel cells" in THIS THREAD



Most of the places that make them won't have small bladders on their websites/catalogs but you should be able to call and special order them in any custom size you desire.



If you find a place that will make them post the results here. Also, don't forget to ask if they'll do a discount for bulk orders

Might be pricey but try:

no prices, just request for quotes.

I bet we could get a bulk discount on this board

This might seem like a weird question to some folks, but what is wrong with the cheap 2-5gal fuel containers? Ride a while and then pour their contents into the tanks, then ride on...maybe too simple, or that they don't cost enough?

prestone 1 gallon antifreeze jugs work well also because of the rectangular shape

When you need them for two or three sections of a 10000k journey they are a hassle. Also they don't take kindly to offs. The turtlepacs for instance are much tougher apparently.

and they are always that big. and I find them worse to deal with when empty--the wind is constantly blowing them around.

cheap, but not that durable. Should fit well in small ATV tank panniers.

How 'bout Snapple 1 qt bottles or Listerine Mouthwash plastic 1qt 1pt containers.

I like the Listerine jugs they're flatter.

Both are tough and gas resistant with wide mouths for filling.

This looks interesting but I can't seem to get a price from the web site. Any idea what they go for?
