much of the engine head and maybe not let heat escape as much. Plus I'm not sure what good it does having fuel below the carb unless you have a fuel pump. I will be making a composite auxillary tank that goes under the raised airbox
that I will also be making with composits. It will be around 3/4 gal and will use a small 12 v fuel pump that will automatically pump gas in the main tank when the level gets low. I also thought about using the swing arm to hold gas. It has 2 small weep holes on either side infront of the rear axle. It would be easy to seal up and run hoses to.
Only problems with this I can think of are: 1) Extra un-sprung weight would have slight negative effects on suspension 2) I'm not sure what would happen with all that fuel sloshing around for extended periods of time in a forceful manner. 3) The swingarm might get a little hot from excessive rear brake heat transfering into it. If these turned out not to be a problem it would be awesome to have the fuel that low on the bike. I think the swing arm could hold a gallon or so.
