Last Summer, I ran across a pair of ultra rare aluminum side cover tanks. A friend and I had been discussing them a few months prior and I was surprised to find a pair still NIB and never installed soon after. I grabbed them for him and he has since installed them. We were working on his bike today and I grabbed another couple of shots. The tanks are on a '76 1000 and are each about a gallon.

Definitely different. I've never seen another pair in real life. They are extremely well engineered (except for the gaps at the rear which he's addressing with a couple of panels). I'm surprised they didn't do a little better given the quality of the hardware.

Now that's a very cool idea to make up for other models. Trip to the fabricators I think

I'm thinking that you would want to make sure the main tank
is close being empty before opening up the extra petcock.
Head pressure might cause the lower tanks to leak fuel out tank vents/filler caps.

Perhaps I'm being thick but if all three were linked to one petcock then that would seem to work. I guess the issue is when one is fully empty and if they were linked then the aux tanks would drain first then the system would sick air in those vessels.

Look at the pictures. All three tanks are at the same level.
