Aftermarket Fuel Tanks

Spare Fuel Tanks / Containers

You can buy a pair of 1.5 liter camping gas bottles that you can fit in the saddlebags when on a road trip to give a little insurance against running dry. 1)
Only problem with the bottles is the small neck size that makes filling from a gas pump difficult and messy.

Below is a 1975 Honda CT90 auxiliary gas tank. 2) \\
It holds 2.3 liters (.6 gallons), has a nice large opening for filling from a pump.
It also has a flexible hose and cap for emptying the gas into the bike's tank.
It's About the size of a canteen and fully designed for gas storage.
These tanks can command a hefty price on Ebay due to their rarity in good condition.
However, if you know someone who has an old CT90 in their shed, maybe you could borrow/buy the little gas tanks.

Fuel Tank Parts and Mods

Petcock (Fuel Outlet)

When removing a factory vacuum operated petcock and swapping to a non-vacuum one, run a new (fresh) vacuum line from the carburetor to the Voes or Map Sensor (respective to year model) and discard the “tee” fitting. It will be cleaner to not use the “T”. 4)

Here's an XLForum thread showing several aftermarket petcocks:
