That's a sweet bike. I was just curious what that custom gas carrier is made from. I find myself needing gas and really like that setup.

I wanted to carry gas but did not want to carry a big can so I came up with this idea. The 2 carriers are MSR Fuel bottles. These are used by backpackers to carry liquid fuel for their camp stoves. If I remember right I used 2pcs of 3-1/4" .065 wall tubing and some flat stock. With a little welding I fabbed up a carrier using some of the stock bolt locations for the fender braces. I slid the bottles in 2 water bottle sleeves (Walmart) and they fit in their snug. Lastly I used 2 stretchy rubber holders that are used for atv gun racks to hold the gun in the "U" cradle. I fill to the recommended level on the bottle, about 3/4 or better with gas. With all of the rough trail riding I thought for sure the pressure would blow the caps or seep out but it has never happened. Although it is only about a half a gallon of gas between the 2 I figure that is a half gallon less of pushing my machine when it runs out.

Right on thanks for the info. But when the tank is only 3 gallons a half gallon is really a fair amount. And yeah when I'm blasting around at 70 or 80 mph I don't want a big can of gas on the bike. Just in case things get hairy.
