|When you have to remove the gas tank to tune your carbs you sometimes
need a source of fuel so you can run the bike for an extended time.
There are tanks available that are made specifically for this but are priced
I made a great one that works fine and it didn't cost me
the big bucks like the one in the catalogs. I ordered a racing catch
can tank, SUM-G1474 , $14.50 from Summit Racing 1-800-230-3030 (it comes
in colors, but that is the number for white so the gas level shows) .
It has a vent at the top and a petcock in the bottom. I took
a hole saw and cut a hole in the top so I could pour the gas in.
I took a rubber plug or cork the size of the hole to stop
up the hole (optional, but you are dealing with gas). Attach a piece
of hose on the petcock on the bottle; add a clothes hanger wire hook around
the bolts that are attached to the bottle and it's done. It cost about
$16 total and it even has its own petcock. Actually better than the ones
they sell for M/C.
