BMW HP2 ENDURO
BMW HP2 The motorcycle to reset the adventure attitude:
HP2 at the Grand Canyon (Bar10 Ranch 2006)
Stuck in the mud on the Great Divide Ride (Somewhere in New Mexico 2006)
I needed more range, so I built an additional fuel tank under the seat. Check out the photos below:
The tank fits under the seat and adds a little more than 2 gallons additional. It fits between the frame rails and being black, it is hardly noticeable. There is an additional fuel pump that pumps fuel during fill up from the main tank to the additional tank. The fuel pump is reversible with a toggle switch and pumps the additional fuel back to the main tank when low.
Pictures below are from the prototyping process.
The final tank is made from 0.040" galvanized steel. Steel was chosen because it can be made much thinner than aluminum and will survive the years of fatigue much better. The weight ends up very close to aluminum, which is only about 5lbs.
As I have been using the tank now, the bike now goes more then 215 miles and fill up is as much as 5.3 gallons for the system. I now have about 5000 miles of rough use on it and it has been great. See the Great Divide Ride page for my fun testing program.
I recommend you make one yourself. Full Pics from Making the Fuel Tank
I also added a windshield, GPS, and bags, for longer adventures.
Took it on the Continental Divide Ride and someone bet me that I could not do a wheelie or they would buy me pie.
Yes, I got the pie that day
TBD: Insert the failures here
