    At 80 mpg, my CT goes on reserve at about 40+ miles, and is empty in another 15. On ebay I bought one of those motorized bicycle 2 liter tanks for $20 including shipping. I set it on the bike to get an idea of how it'll look. It'll sit about an inch lower, once I cut the studs and make mounting brackets, plus painting it to match will help as well. My feelings are mixed, I'll get another 40 + miles, but it still looks a bit goofy to me. Opinions welcomed. IMG_1352.JPG IMG_1351.JPG

    Okay. I agree it looks goofy but I may have gone with another word. Look at the back of the bike on the right. I have used this setup for a couple years now and my bikes range is about 100 miles. With both tanks full I’m carrying about 1 gallon.

    Now for changing the subject. Please comment on that exhaust. Does the monkey can choke the motor or does it work well?

    I wouldn't use that, save it for another project. Goofy_Yop.jpg OR to give the lawnmower extra range. :p LOL! You should consider the ''side mount'' tank OR the rear mounted style with a clone rack. Like Deoodles has.

    I already sprang for the $20 so I'll mess with it and see what happens. As for the monkey muffler, it works fine, and has a deeper sound than the stock Chinese muffler. I use that muffler on my YX140 powered CL90 and the performance is about the same, both great!

    You bike's a beauty, how much fuel does that tank hold and how much did it cost? By the way, keep your $20. I've painted and installed it, and it's beginning to grow on me.
