I have an Aux Fuel Tank I want to install I have the mounting just about figured out. It will be mounted to the passenger grab handles and I want to gravity feed it to the main tank with a shut off valve. I have a bulkhead fitting I could use through the Tank Level Sending Plate, but in looking at it today I think I can probably just "T" into the fuel return line.

So the question is has anybody done this and if so how did it work, Alternately if you think it won't work why not?

I'm kind of on a short time line I leave on Thursday so I need to wrap things Up.

I know, I I think I have it figured out. It seems that there is enough flow in the return line that it won't allow the fuel to drain to the main tank with the engine running. I made an attempt tonight but wasn't happy with how it was working out so I'm going to hold off and make do with just the main tank.

I have a 2018 Goldwing that I want to install an aux. fuel tank also. I was thinking about the grab handles also, but haven't started any mounting ideas yet. Any advise would be helpful along with pictures if possible. Also having a tough time getting the seat off. I have the bolts removed according to instructions but still will not budge. What's the secret? Thanks for any help/advise
