The American southwest is motorcycle country. Fair weather throughout most of the year. Long open roads and scenic byways. In many instances there are long 90 mile stretches between gas stations. There have also been days when I've driven into a small southwestern town to fill up, only to discover that the town just wasn't open for business, if it was there at all. In all of these situations it helps greatly to have a long fuel range.
Say,... 300 miles...

...and some spare toilet paper, and a large discreet bush.

I agree. I would like to have a five gallon tank with a .5 gal reserve with a petcock to activate. Toatal 5.5 gal. That would do fine and would only add about 15 lbs.

Another gallon and a half would be wonderful. I ride with sports cruisers that have 6 gallon tanks. I am always the one in need of gas first. Since this is a touring scooter, shouldn't we have the gas to tour? :?

I completely agree. If I could add just one thing to the 650 it would be a larger fuel tank. Even driving in the UK, I have to fill up every other day.

Three hundred mile range would be ideal. That would equate to about a 5 gallon tank for the AN400 and a 6 gallon tank for the AN650. This would be the most important improvement Suzuki could make on these scooters. It would also put them far ahead of the competition in this area.

I would like a larger tank but only if it stayed within the current outer line geometry and did not sacrafice trunk space.

Because of the size of Houston, it is normal for me to have 80-mile in-city riding days, and one extra gallon of gas would help a great deal. Besides, it feels rediculous to stop and get 3 gallons and then run off...people might think that I can't afford the gas. :wink:

Instead of the 650's 4gal. tank , how about dual 3.7gal tanks for it? Those would come from the 400. Food for thought.

larger gas tank

Please give me a larger fuel tank. I recently drove Cincinnati>Lexington, Ky>Cincinnati and had to fill up twice when My friend from Dayton, Oh rode his Kawasaki Concours all the way from Dayton to join me and he went all the way home before refilling. He had 7.5 gallons.

LARGER FUEL TANK

I fully support my colleagues overseas about needing a larger fuel tank. Here in Australia you go frequently over 250 km on a country run before you see another fuel stop.
I do not like to ride my 650 below the last two marks on the fuel gauge because I do not know how accurate it is and hate to be stranded 100 km from the nearest fuel stop. The first three marks give me about 75 km, the last two I have no idea and do not want to find out stranded alone somewhere on a bush road.
So Suzuki increase the tank size by another 3 litres at least.

:evil:

They should put a large gas tank in that big empty step-through void.
BRILLIANT.

Fuel Tank Capacity

The fuel capacity on this type of scooter should be no smaller that 5.6 US Gallons. We should have an upgrade modification availible to install in all previous years of production models.

I also would like a larger fuel tank but I'm not willing to give up storage space or the step thru to get it.
