    I have a solution to my delimma.

    My solution involves a 5 gal portable air tank from harbor freight, a weld in bung with a vented cap, some flat stock steel, the original fuel sending unit, and the original fuel sending unit mount from the gas tank.

    Prices:
    Weld in bung: 28.00
    Air tank: 27.77
    Flat stock: FREE
    Stock pump: FREE
    Pump mount: FREE

    Just need to remove the yellow paint, cut off the handles and feet.

    Next, drill out the hole for the filler neck, build a "sump" for the pump, cut out the bottom of the tank for the sump and pump.

    Add my fuel return line to the bung already welded in the top of the tank.

    Weld on all the new pieces.

    Then paint it silver.

    They also have a 11 gallon tank, but it was a little too long for the space I have.

    If I had the space for it I would have gone with the 11 gal.

    The 11 gallon was 35.99

    This may be some more work. But you could get the bigger one and cut it down to fit snugly BUT I think 5 gallons would be perfect.
    I run a 5 gallon on a honda blackbird 1100 FI. It's a good size. Any more is kinda over kill IMO

    My current tank is only about 4.25 gallons, and I can ride for a LOOOOONG time on 4.25 gallons.

    Will keep you posted on the progress!

    That tank is quite heavy. I always thought a helium tank they sell at Costco would work well. Thinner wall but plenty strong. They are larger diameter though.

    i dont think it weighs more than 10 lbs. Plus im running 130 horses in a 650# buggy so I doubt I will notice the weight difference of a couple pounds. Especially with 13T front and 70T rear sprocket gearing is low!
