Living in lappland with distances between petrol stations.
Any tips on extend / add /// more petrol on a K1100 LT?
Hello man from Lapland!
I remember somebody who build his own fuel tank from Aluminium with 55 liter. Can't find the pictures in the moment.
A extra tank at the rear could help.
And just take a extra fuel canister, easy.
Enjoy your rides
What about the simple solution?
Thee are some extended Fuel Tanks avaliable, but they are all selfmade/customised Original Fueltanks.
And they ALL look , in my eyes....
But if you find a used tank, try this:
Cut the middle completely (including the filler cap + ~5 cm) from front to back.
(So the front and back holding points are still the same)
Then add a band of about 3-5 cm (or whatever) on both sides of the removed band and weld it back in shape.
If you cut the Tank horizontal, it'll look as
(just checked the Link, it's from 2008.... but maybe you have to be registered, before the pics are shown, sorry!)
Show the results!
You could google for `ironbutt extra fuel tank'.
However, in your case a canister in the luggage may be best. Just fill up fuel, before tank is empty to avoid a screaming fuel pump.
