Gas Tank Extension For Harley-Davidson Touring Motorcycles

From Arlen Ness, this new winged tank extension to give a custom appearance to your gas tank for a  fraction of what it would cost you to buy a new after-market one or modify yours by cutting it, grinding and welding add-on extensions. It is made of high quality composite material and oven cured to insure stability over a wide heat range. Each extension piece has hand placed fibers strategically located to provide maximum strength to weight ratio. Each piece is primed and ready to paint. Will fit 09-up Street Glide and road Glide models, FLHX, FLHT, FLT, FLTR. Will not fit Road King models (FLHR) Gas cap not included. Requires modification of your stock seat or the use of an aftermarket one. $339.95. Arlen Ness.

    Pretty good idea, but expect some adjustments. No gas tanks, including Harleys, are perfectly symmetric.

    Makes me wonder why Harley never got the idea to improve it’s touring gas tank, offering a one-piece stock tank looking like this final result obtained from add-ons.

    With molding, primer and paint not so easy to do for perfect fit. But bolt-on, mild custom bike guys will love the idea.

    Arlen PLEASE team up with Russ W and just bring out a one piece 6-7 gallon tank with this shape/design.. PLEASE?

  5. 5 Question Feb 24th, 2011 at 3:24 pm

    Did I miss an obvious question here? Just how many gallons does it ADD?

  6. 6 Joseph Feb 24th, 2011 at 3:42 pm

    Zero gallon added. It’s purely cosmetic.

    Looks like something Victory would do.

    sorry, I just don’t get customizing baggers…… I know, I know, all the kool kids are doing it. Whatev…. I just don’t get it. But hell, I am not kool…. and I doubt it fits all that well though, that seems to be a heavily modded bike (again….. ITS A BAGGER… ok, I’m done!

    Having said that, KUDOS to HD for making something that is NOT chrome and does not have a gold eagle, Live to Ride moniker or that new Dork Kustoms skull.

    To all those bagger owners who I offended…. don’t worry, you will have the last laugh as you ride by me when i am broken down on the side of the road with no tools or a blanket, lunch box, books, TV, DVD, cooler, laptop, puppy, change of clothes, tent, sleeping bag, sewing kit and inflatable raft (damn you can hold a lot in those bags 🙂

    Eric, I have a custom Bobber and three baggers. I look so cool on that Bobber, so long as I leave my cell phone at home (which I do) and the clothing that I am wearing at 8 a.m. is the exact clothing I will need at 8 p.m. I can’t even take two types of googles — whatever I leave home with is what I have for the druation.

    Now, on my bagger, I don’t have a lunch box, TV, DVD, cooler, laptop or puppy, but I do have rain gear and a place to hold my leather jacket when it gets too hot. And, I usually have a book because I love to read and sometimes stop for lunch or dinner and read while I eat. When I am driving from one state to another, it is nice to have basic overnight stuff.

    That said Eric, I love your sense of humor, but some of us actually like the idea of some comfort over hundreds of miles. Anyway, ride on.

    I’m with 1550tc why not make a larger/longer high capacity tank that looks like this. Otherwise nice looking stuff.
