Re: reserve tank

would be much less work and more cost affective to carry a few cans.

Why don't you do this upgrade to a ZJ tank.

no shit!!!!

I trailer mine for longer trips. Thinking of adding a couple 10 gal tanks on either side of my toolbox, mounted on front of trailer. Although I've done a few all weekend rides and never come close to running out of fuel.

Yeah it seems like there a lot more upgrades you could spend your dough on that are higher on the list before spending $1300 (not including install) to replace a pair of gas cans.

Re: reserve tank

I just throw a 5 gallon can in the cargo area. If I need more than 25 gallons of fuel to get to the next station I've probably got bigger problems at hand.
