Default Has anyone installed a larger Fuel tank on a VLX 600?

Hi Folks

(take two on the post)

I have a 2006 VLX - 2.9 Gal fuel Tank.

Has one every installed a larger capacity fuel tank? Say off of a Spirit 750?

What about those third party extensions. Then you could remove them when you're not travelling.

Do you mean like those red cans they sell at K-Mart?
LOL

Tempting to prove a point and may be some pictures sent back Honda will get the message across.

I've heard tell that the tank from a Shadow 1100 will fit nicely on a VLX with only a small bit of modification. See the VLX forum for more on this.

The Tour Tank Looks kinda Cool - Not what I am looking for.
But looks like a quarter keg.

How do I get to the VLX forum link mentioned above?

Thanks!!

Hey man, don't go there. Just use a used tank. Check this link

this forum has all resources dedicated to VLX600s

Good luck,

btw, you can also use magna tanks, spirit tanks, and ace tanks... just search around on that forum

daewon,

I couldn't get anything out of that link much.

You mean my 94 VT600C (VLX) can accept a larger tank from another model? Wow, that' might be worth switching tanks for longer trips!

That link is the end-all-be-all of everything VLX-mod-related. Tons of people there have done a bigger tank on the VLX. Most use the Spirit or the Ace tank.

If it's been done to a VLX, the folks there have done it.

Here is a post that has 80+ messages about putting larger tanks on...
