Hello everyone, i got to thinking again. :eek:

when i was in my garage looking at a aluminum 5 gall fuel cell laying around and was wondering if i were to make a mount to mount this cell over the rear seat do you guys think the fuel pump will create enough vacuum to make the fuel flow from the main gas tank to the fuel cell to the reserve tank. the fuel cell fill cap is not vented at all. the fuel return will still goto the main fuel tank and it would be reverable so the tank can be removed for non touring. i am planning a trip to virginia in about 4or5 months and would like to carry extra fuel so i can venture off course more comfortably.

If the fuel tank is going to be mounted on the rear seat to then be mechanically attached to the fuel tank, what would be the difference if you just put a spickit on the extra tank and poured the fuel into the bike when the fuel got low?
