Gas tank upgrades for 2006 VT750
Just had a quick question about possibly getting a larger tank for my bike. Basically I'd like to be doing a lot of riding across the prairies in Canada and unfortunately the gas stations close around 8-10pm especially on weekends, and when that happens, it can easily be 400-500 kms between refueling points. but my max range is roughly 275kms. I have taken to carrying an extra 10L on me in my rucksack, but I was wondering anyone had any experience with either mounting a larger capacity tank from another bike, or getting a custom tank with a larger capacity. Fuel takes up a lot of room that could be used for clothing/necessary supplies and I'm not a big fan of refueling on the side of the road at night.
The current fuel capacity is 3.6 gallons, I was thinking somewhere just over 5 gallons might be nice. Is this realistic?
Any advice would be much appreciated.
