Question Aux/Front fuel tank connection

I about ready to install a left side aux fuel tank on my 2:1 exhaust '11 adventure. I know other guys have tied it into their front tanks. This would have to be a gravity feed and thus connection low on the front tank. Not quite sure how to do this. Any suggestions?

A T in the crossover line works fine for me. I installed quick disconnects on both ends of the crossover to make tank removal easier. Not absolutely necessary

yep, and while you are at it, put an in-line filter, it will take some of the dirt out of the line risking to clog the hose between the to strainers intalled in the petcocks



40 or less microns would be best :)

How come no pics of your 2:1 exhaust and aux tank, or did I miss it?

Thanks gents. I see the cross over tube down low now. I was thinking the cross over tube up by the air box but I think that is just a breather tube...right?

Maoule...I have not put up picks yet because I just gutted the cans yesterday. Gunna work on the 2:1 pipe, straight pipe mod and fuel tank welding over the next week or so. Will get picks up on my other thread when done.

Renogeorge...Great idea on the quick disconnect however I don't know what one of those looks like. Can you post a pict of yours?

E Bay specials on the quick connects. Leave an inch or 2 of fuel line off of each tank's petcock, then quick connect then crossover (with T in crossover for line from rear tank). To remove tanks, release the 2 quick connects and leave the crossover hose and T tap to rear tank in place. Probably want to release pressure line on left side when removing that tank.
