Tank lift info

Thinking of doing a tank lift, probably 3".

I've seen plenty of threads relating to this, not but not that actually tell me what is required modification wise to the fuel lines when doing a lift this high.

Tank seems easy enough to remove and a fabbing up a bracket isn't an issue.

Just concerned what I'll need to do with the lines, if I can simply reroute or need to buy longer ones?!

Any info would be great.

Thanks!

If I was doing this lift I would measure and route new fuel lines. You might end up with one line slightly stretched and all you need is something leaking at a time that you are riding with a big smile on your face.

So the photo shows the one fuel line that I think will be the issue.
A 1” lift, this pipe would just manoeuvre around and allow it.
Anything more I think it’ll need extending.

Do Harley supply these or is it a car auto place part?

I’m going to fab up a bracket and suss out.
Maybe I’ll try do a “how to”!

Since you live in Melbourne you should check out local shop Reza Customs. The owner Luke Shifty Daye in on Facebook selling 2" and 3" lift brackets to anybody around the world from Melbourne. I've been thinking about getting one. Also depending on bars you have, you need to move the tank backwards 20mm/0.75inch so the bars will not hit the tank when rotating to fork lock. Read more on Facebook (Harley-Davidson Street 750/500 Owners Group)
