I'm wondering what people will do to up the fuel capacity. Honda won't be releasing a larger tank from what we've seen so far. So aftermarket or homebrew something...

400km between tanks isn't much, especially for those Australian guys who hit the outback, 600 km between fuel stops not uncommon...

My Africa Twin is averaging around 20km/L. You can track its progress on Fuelly.

I think this number would be fairly close to the 340-360 km range to a tank that I get, that means that when its working ie a lot of 2nd 3rd gear work you are not going to make 300 km to a tank. Thats a real pain as it means that you have to start looking for gas every 150 km or so. Over here even on the inland highways gas stops are about 100 km apart (if they are open) so a few extra L in the tank means the difference between stopping 3 times on a ride or 6-7 depending on how you like to gamble. The XL1000s tank at 25 L was a real winner in that respect.
I think a 6 L tail tank would be a real winner here.
