    4.5 gallons of capacity, as calculated.

    My estimate (tank fab, brackets, Rivco hitch, fuel pump, miscellaneous) would be ~$1300

    The tank mount uses the Rivco receiver to hold it onto the bike - quite a setup.

    The last Aux tank I put on a bike was a K16 and the cost was around $800 complete. I suspect it will be a little more on this Wing mainly due to the extra cost of the trailer hitch.

    It wasn't cheap to do this, but I did look into it.

    Hope this helps.
    If I may ask, what's the cost and tank size? I didn't see that on the forum. I like the idea of an add-on that's out of the way like that.

    The motorcycle mount was a Rivco trailer hitch. So, he's able to convert from tail-dragger to standard, plus hitch/rack bag setup.

    Auxiliary Fuel Tank?

    Im looking for information about installing a tail dragger fuel tank on my new Wing.
    If you have any info I would appreciate the help.
    We did a rally in Tx,Ok and other states last week and the wind and rain took a toll on our gas mileage and we spent way to much time in service stations. I did not want to do another one of these on this Wing but, if we continue doing these rallies it’s a must.
    thanks for the help.
