I don't know about welding on fuel tanks - it can be done but I never liked the
idea.  I used a dry break which involves drilling a hole in the bottom of the
tank near the filler cap (so you can reach it from inside), and then the unit
simply clamps from both sides and uses an o-ring to seal.  No leaks so far.  The
nice part about the dry break is that it has a quick release fitting which
(theoretically) doesn't leak when you remove it to take the tank off.  In
practice you get a few drops, but it's much better than the alternative which is
a mess.  Does anyone know a good source for these?

Do you guys weld in fittings on the bottom of your tanks for fuel return?.Im
thinking of using the breather hole at the front of the tank,this will work
,wont it?.
PS.Has anyone ever tried a muffler under the sump(like Buell),nice short
path for gasses and keeps the rear of the bike clean looking.?
 Thanks for your advice     Stuart Graves
