    Petrol tank swap.

    I have an 95 dyna wide glide. Only getting 75 miles before it goes on reserve . Is there a larger tank from an other that will fit without modifications.Cheers.

    You don't say which tank you have now. If that's a stock tank then you have something very wrong going on with your fuelling ...

    There are plenty of replacement tanks available from any of the aftermarket suppliers ...

    Thanks for reply. I believe it's a standard tank. The bike seems to be running spot on so not feeling any fuelling problem. As regards new tank was hoping maybe pick up a used one before I splash out on a new one.

    Something really wrong there Adam. I think the OEM tank was just over 4 galls(UK) - so 75 miles??

    How many galls / litres can you get in it when you fill up after running down to the reserve?

    Running 'spot on' is emptying the tank in 75 miles? Nobody on here can help you then ...

    That is a one piece tank with a balance pipe at the front. Has that pipe been blanked off, or is it blocked? In other words once it goes to reserve how much fuel are you putting in to fill it back up again?


    Something not right here.
    Much less involved.....

    Exactly my thought Scriv which is why I asked the same question. If blocked then 75 miles on less than 2 galls might be explainable.
    Wonder how much he puts in when on reserve?
