Nice work.

I did a similar thing for a 950se but made it out of carbon fibre and its a tool box not a fuel tank.
Made it so it has a lid that seals down on top and prevents te tools and sores getting filled with mud and sand.

The seat has some rubber spacers.

These need to transfer the rider's weight on the top of the tank. The tank support should be quite hefty.
Cheers.

Coming together quite nicely. I think you've got a winner here if it tests out in use. Interested in how it will be mounted, hardware, etc..

I'd run a common vent line from the three high spots to eliminate any air pockets and max out volume. Then put a check valve inline on the supply line so height relative to the main tank is irrelevant, that's how the Neduro tanks work.

Tagged for SERIOUS interest... This would be MUCH nicer than a RotoPax and still keep the weight down. I'll keep an eye out for pricing and availability as my bike will be in the build stage in less than a month!

If this tank is lower than the OR tanks

maybe it doesn't need to fill through its own filler cup. So it is not essential to remove the seat for filling up?

Thx!

I'm thinking gravity fill from stock tanks if the underseat tank is lower than the stock fillers.

Theoretically possible, but the underseat would fill so slowly- one would have to fill the main tanks, then wait for it to backfill the underseat, then repeat. Unless there was a LARGE hose connecting them.

The connecting hose could be larger than the OR hoses. A breather could let air escape. The left tank being higher when parked could be the one feeding the underseat tank.
Cheers

Hi Rade, i really think the filling without taking of the seat is mandatory. As the tank will be used for long distance travels mostly with lot of luggage it might be strapped above the seat. To refill these 8liters and having to take of the luggage might be a huge pita.

Nevertheless: It really looks promising, keep on!

just my 2cents
