NOTE: TT-USA has one of the first tanks installed and running. We gave it a good test (416 mi to empty) on the Oregon Backcountry Discovery Route.
To transform the F800GS into a true long-distance motorcycle it is necessary to add a second 5.3 gal fuel tank. With the original 4.2 gallons, the new total volume is 9.5 gallons, can provide a range of 400+ miles.
The tank installs in the normal position of a motorcycle tank, and drains by gravity into the main underseat tank. A locking fuel filler cap is included, with two keys.
It is made of virtually indestructible Polyamide Nylon, the same material that modern car bumpers are made from. Thus it can be prepared using normal automotive primers.
Suggested painting procedure:
1.) Plastic adhesion promoter (PPG DPX 801)
2.) DP sealer various numbers: 90,40,48
3.) Wetsand to smooth imperfections
4.) DP sealer second coat
5.) Base coat / Clear coat system or single depending on color and application.
