    Default Roadsmith Unveils New Auxiliary Fuel Tank Option for Harley-Davidson Touring

    White Bear Lake, MN (February 10, 2015) – Roadsmith Trikes unveiled an all new auxiliary fuel tank option at the V-Twin Dealer Expo in Cincinnati, and at the Minneapolis Progressive International Motorcycle Show this past weekend. Roadsmith’s new option will be of utmost importance to the true touring trike rider, featuring a full 3-gallon fuel capacity and separate filler neck allowing for long distance range and rapid fill. The system also features an “on-the-fly” transfer system, with the push of a button, all 3-gallons can transfer to the main tank in a matter of minutes.

    This new option is poised to not only allow the rider to go the extra mile, but more importantly offer a peace of mind knowing that fuel will no longer limit the adventure. The auxiliary tank retails for $799 and is designed for the 2009 and newer Harley-Davidson based trike conversions for the company’s flagship HDTR model.

    For more than 40 years, Roadsmith Trikes has been designing and producing some of the best engineered, best handling trikes in the business. Based in White Bear Lake, MN, Roadsmith manufactures and distributes 19 different trike conversion kits for Honda, Harley-Davidson, Victory and Indian motorcycles. They are represented by over a 100 Roadsmith dealers in the U.S. and Canada as well as their own retail location, The Trike Shop, on Beach Street in Daytona Beach, FL.

    Wonder if this will fit a stock HD Tri-Glide?? I've been looking for something like this even before I bought mine
    2014 Big Blue Pearl / Vivid Black, 1.5" Lift Brackets, Street Cannon Mufflers, 10" Wind Splitter Windshield, Daymaker LED Fog Lights, Passing and Fog Lamps work on both High and Low Beams, BAL-1R Rear Taillights, Dunlop American Elite Rear MT90B16 (34AE92) on Front turned backwards, Dynojet Power Vision Turner, De-Cat Headpipe just for a start.

    Seems to me they would have this for the HD as well, RS does the HD conversion.

    HarleyPap57 - Afraid not...the auxiliary fuel tank option is specifically designed around the Roadsmith Trike conversion and for a handful of reasons it would not be a direct bolt-in application on a Tri-Glide.

    Thanks for the reply. Guess I'm back to the drawing board and still looking for someone to come up with one the fit the HD Tri-Glide.

    Default Possible upcoming Aux Fuel Tank for factory Tri-Glide?

    Well, I just spoke with the folks up at Roadsmith... they currently have a 2.5 gallon (ish) Aux Fuel Tank in the R&D stage, and they asked me to call back around November (2019) to see if it's come to fruition yet. I like their filler neck and I like the auto-shutoff feature on the setups for the Roadsmith trike kit, so I'd hope they use those items on the TG kit too. Bad part is- the TG has a solid axle, so it uses more room under the tub than their Roadsmith independent rear uses.

    So, a smaller tank. Even another 2.5 is better than carrying a separate gas can...

    I'm definitely setting up a reminder to call them back!

    I would certainly be up for one of these. 2.5 gallons would be awesome.

    If I already have a Roadsmith trike (Goldwing) set up, can this be added if trike had been built two years ago??

    I have a 2005 GW w/2012 RS conversion, and I can assure you mine does not have the auto shut off valve. RS must have designed this 2.5 gal different. Those that have the 5 gal aux tank will know what I'm talking about. Forget the transfer pump is on and you will experience a 'fuel flooding' problem.

    Hmmmmmmmmm very interesting situation here::: I did not get the added fuel tank when I had my Roadsmith kit added (goldwing) BUT to be truthful, I honestly don't feel like I really ever needed the extra gallons or weight added to my bike's already heavy weight...I have never ran out of fuel....
