Hey Richard,
That is a lot of fuel to be carrying on a big enduro bike. What kind of range are you expecting to cover with all of that petrol?

Hard to say. I know when I'm at high elevation my milage goes up. Maybe 325 miles up in Colorado or the like. I will have to see. It just allows me to go to more desolate places. I like that. I remember carrying a one gallon anti freeze bottle and some small white gas bottles with me in the early days for range. I like having more options. Edited Thu Sep 06 2018, 10:58pm by oldfool

For the moment I am going with what Markus reccomened. No pump. I just need to do some miles and see what happens. I like the idea of the pump so I can know when I'm getting low. Any way it's nice to have 7.9 gallon capacity. If I was going to use the pump the plan was to use the horn switch to power it. Edited Thu Sep 06 2018, 10:56pm by oldfool

Markus recomened? If use the rear tank you have to find a way to transfer gas from back to main tank. Pump is essential.. by xrnik

I have both and no extra pump ... but I have a rather odd setup, with an external pump that can pull from either the main tank or the Markus tank.  Details here: http://hp2enduro.com/hp2e_plugins/forum/forum_viewtopic.php?3099.0#post_3134
Still works great after a few years and some 20k miles.  I'm very happy with it.
But yes, with the OEM pump I can't think of any way to avoid having a low-pressure pump to transfer the fuel, as the Markus tank sits lower.

Just finished my test of the Markus tank with the HPN tank. No electric fuel pump. The fuel is being drawn up into the main tank without the electric pump.Works great. by oldfool
