Extra fuel for on road and light of road

I have been searching for some extra fuel capacity for my 990 A and my Jesse luggage system. Options available:

1- CJ aluminum tank didn't work due to Jesse luggage mount limitation
2- Rade under the seat tank not possible due to my ABS
3- Rotopax I didn't have where to mount beside the rear but didn't want due to the extra weight on the sub frame
4- ADV tank same limitations of the CJ's aluminum tank due to Jesse luggage mount
5- Safari tank to expensive to import in to Brasil

Some months ago I meet a friend that developed a solution for his Vstron and he already has done about 75K miles with this system. So he made one similar system to my Jesse Luggage.

One stainless steel tank of 4.7 L attached to the bottom of each pannier



They have a latch type of fixture where I can place a lock to prevent unwanted friends..


It is very easy to remove


Internal view of the attachment mechanism



The locking mechanism to prevent fuel thief



The plastic hose to fill the thank to prevent fuel spill



The thanks removed from the bike



For sure this is not perfect and has some limitations but for my needs I think they will do fine.

Jessie and Adventure Tank

Who says you can't have Jessie James bags and an Adventure Tank?
This is one set up I made for a customer last year in my shop.

I am sure it is possible but neiter Cj and Al coudn't do it for me.

Leaving in Brasil I have so limitatios to buy and import stuff, so my goal was to have what you have done, but I endup with what I have now.

Any way I am happy with what I have, thanks for posting this.

I love the fact the weight is carried very low and in, great setup.

Very nice, very clean. And, they can be removed for shorter trips. Simple and efficient.

Very clever !!

I wonder if they could be fitted to the Hepco plastic panniers. I could see a problem fixing the latches to the plastic considering they are a water tank as well.

Me to, I didn't test it yet with panniers loaded and fuel, but I think they will do fine.

I hope one day I can do what you guys are doing!

When are you guys going to be in Brazil?

That is what I loved about also because you don't need to carry the thanks if you don't need them.

They are only for long trips wher fuel may be a concern.

My friedn has a different pannier a more retangular one and his thanks follow its shapes.

They are custom made and you can do what ever shape you want.

I don't think he would produce them commercially, but I am sure you can find a good werder to do the same.

If you want PM me and I can send my friend's email so you can talk to him.
