Anyone whose sphere of action extends beyond the county borders and has already looked for a petrol station while sweating in reserve setting knows that a reserve tank should be valued. We stock reserve tanks with a filled quantity of approx. 1.5 to 12.5 L.
Reserve tanks in the spare wheel were originally developed as equipment for the 150 GS models. Now this exists for all open 10“ and closed 8“ rims. Here the reserve tank is not connected to the fuel circulation but, like a canister, only serves as an additional tank for manual re-filling at a low fuel level.
For anyone who is on the hunt for a real reserve tank monster, these also exist in the form of the luggage holds of the 50 SS/90SS "rally", as a complete spare wheel with a tank content of up to 14 litres or combined seat/tank combination. The tanks may be associated with the main tank and have a separate fuel tap. An additional fuel pump is required depending on the position of the tank.
Conclusion: good and useful equipment that takes the fear out of running out of gas.
