Diy Tech Tip - How To Install Lowbrow Customs WX Split Tanks



Lowbrow Customs WX Gas Tanks were influenced by the MoCo's WR factory race bike gas tanks. The beauty of the Lowbrow WX Gas Tanks are that with the included, innovative rear mount they will bolt right up to your stock Big Twin frame 1936 - 1984. Get a custom, narrowed look with a tight gap between the tanks, no fabrication required, these are the perfect tanks for a custom Shovelhead or Panhead. WX Gas Tanks have a capacity of 2.25 gallons and feature both a vent and fuel crossover and accept a 22mm petcock, and accept standard cam-style gas caps.

Tools Needed for this job.

3/8 drive ratchet
1/2 inch socket
Extend long flat head screwdriver
1/2 inch wrench
5/16 Allen or Allen Socket
9/16 wrench
Side cutters



Step 1 - Bolt the rear T-mount to your frame using 9/16 in wrench or socket. Shim between frame tabs with washers as necessary. Do NOT fully tighten yet. (Note: Make sure the T-mount back is pointed up not down)



Step 2 - Insert bolt through top front tab and into cast lug on frame backbone to hold one side of WX Tank in place.



Step 3 - Attach 1/4” inside diameter fuel line to crossover fitting on right tank, install hose clamp and fully tighten. Add an additional hose clamp loosely for the other fitting on the left tank. Push the fuel line into place on vent fitting of left tank when installing right tank. Put flat washer and nylock nut on top tank tab bolt and do not fully tighten.



Step 4 - Align the two rear tabs. The tab on the left tank should be behind of the right tank tab. Attach the WX Tanks with the supplied allen head bolt to the rear end of the T-mount using 5/16 allen wrench or socket.



Step 5 - The front lower tabs on the tanks attach to the stock frame tab on either side. Install and fully tighten the bolt and nylock nut. Fully tighten top through bolt and all bolts to rear T-mount.



Step 6 - Use a length of 1/4” inside diameter fuel line and two hose clamps to connect the fuel crossover fittings. Tighten clamps. Also tighten left tank hose clamp on the upper vent crossover line from Step 3.



Step 7 - Install 22mm petcock. To ensure proper clearance, use stock top motor mount or Gasbox heavy-duty Top Motor Mount.



Notes: Tanks are pressure tested at the factory, but it is highly recommended you or your painter pressure test it again before painting; it's cheap insurance!

New Focus Feature: The 3rd Annual Congregation Show

Words and photos by Panhead Jim
I can almost guarantee that if you are reading this article, that you probably grew up hitting bikes shows at local Harley dealerships and independent shops. You remember the ones, where two dozen bikes show up in some parking lot on a Saturday morning, and if you were lucky, there was one cool motorcycle worth checking out. The thing was that one cool bike made the whole event worthwhile, and you probably spent the rest of the weekend talking about it. Now try to wrap your head around an event where there are over 100 motorcycles spread out in a century-old Ford factory, and every single bike is badass.

DRAG SPECIALTIES SEATS LOW-PROFILE SOLO SEATS

Drag Specialties Seats now offers a double diamond pattern for its popular low-profile seat. These seats feature solar-reflective leather in the seating area and automotive-grade vinyl on the sides. This patented process reduces surface temperature by as much as 25*F for a cooler seat, higher durability and longer life over conventional leather or vinyl. Underneath is a flexible urethane foam interior to provide maximum comfort. The 3/1" ABS thermoformed seat base has a carpeted bottom and rubber bumpers to protect paint from damage. A handy EZ-Mount system requires no tools for taking seat on and off. Seat geometry places rider 2" further back and up to 1" lower (depending on model) than the stock seat for a better rider position with improved styling. The seat also covers the two seat fender studs for a low, clean look. Can be used with Drag Specialties solo rear seats (sold separately) and includes mounting hardware. Proudly made in the U.S.A.

Animal Welfare Institue

If you're interested in donating to any of the numerous animal charities out there, this is one of the best.  "The Animal Welfare Institute (AWI) is an American, non-profit, charitable organization founded in 1951 with the goal of reducing pain and fear inflicted on animals by humans. Its legislative division, the Society for Animal Protective Legislation (SAPL), pushes for the passage of laws that reflect this purpose."  Contributions actually go to the cause at hand and not just advertising. 
The AWI Quarterly magazine shows a glimpse where your money and efforts go.  "Since 1951, the Animal Welfare Institute has been dedicated to reducing animal suffering caused by people.  We seek better treatment of animals everywhere—in the laboratory, on the farm, in commerce, at home, and in the wild."
