Here's how I set her up. So simple it hurts...
2L pop bottles in the tank panniers also work for quick runs between gas stations and then you can ditch them.....just don't crash...
Rotopax on pillion seat plate. This is a 2-can set up that I normally carry 1 gal/water on top of the 1 gal/gas
A second gas can could be substituted for the water if I ever needed that kind of range...or even another extender and a third gallon
heres my 06xr650l with a 7.2 gallon gas tank i made and another 2 gallon gas tank i made behind the rear sideplate.
heres a pic of my 031150gs with a custom 12 gallon main tank and a custom made 1.5 gallon reserve tank on the rear side.
Very clean set-up
Might help if we knew what type of bike you have.
Sick looking XR there Kubiak.
Acerbis 7.2g tank on a F650
I plan on putting another on the otherside...sincei don't go off-road with this bike its just for those days when you find yourself low and in the middle of nowhere...
when im just cruising on a trip i can get at least 120 miles out of the tank before she goes dry, so the extra is just enough to get me to a fill up station. the furthest im ever from a gas station is maybe 20 miles, so no need for me to go overboard with huge tanks. plus i can strap some goodies on the top
2gal rotopax on a custom side rack made by an ADV inmate (emerson.biguns), now more or less the same as what Wolfman sells.
After upgrading to a IMS 3.1gal tank and doing several longer rides, I'm comfortable with just an extra half gallon most places with two MSR bottles. When I had a Kriega US-20, like this...
Now they live in the right side enduro saddle bag for nearly all rides.
3 gallon tank on the passenger seat, adds about 150 miles to the range.
1 gal RotoPax on passenger seat.
Looks like your bike's been steampunked.
I didn't know what in the hell that was... so I googled it... not sure how my bike looks like that.... but the term 'steampunked' cracks me up everytime I say it.
I keep seeing pictures of bikes with milk crates on the back full of gas bottles, with people poking fun at them. Means I probably shouldn't post a pic of my Enfield doing the same thing.
My favorite of all. Sometimes common sense just wins out!
Its saved my butt more then once and I didnt have to go to Alaska to need it.
