Mini Motard Endurance Setup

I am prepping for the TMGP season and I'm going to be running the endurance races every round. Last year I ran one race and saw a bunch of the endurance bikes appeared to have a gas tank expansion mounted on the front of the bikes where the number plate is. Does anyone have any advice on how to setup an extra large tank or add that second tank to a mini motard? (KLX 110)
You can see an example of the tanks I'm talking about in the picture attached (#7 bike)

easy to hook up.. it comes with clamps that mount it to the forks, just run the fuel line to the vent line and it will pull the gas out of the auxiliary tank first.

If your in it to win it then its worth the expense, we rode for a few yrs without one till things got serious, lol

Awesome thanks.
I don't know if we are going to win it, but we're sure gonna shoot for some podiums this season! We ran out of gas in our first endurance race, it was kinda funny watching my brother having to push the bike back to the pits. We're just a 2 man team, and we're not real quick on pits stops, so we may just get the bigger tank so we don't have to fill up as much.
We are running F6 on a KLX 110 with the BBR 130cc kit in it. Got some other stuff done to it too.

Good luck but you may not need it, IIRC the F7 endurance was won by a 1 man team this past year Lol!

Yeah I'm looking forward to the start of the season! The endurance race we did was a blast last year. We will be doing some sprint races as well. Since we share the bike we have to split them up. I'm keeping an eye out for any TMGP bikes up for sale, if i find one that piques my interest I might pick up a second bike.

Also,
Is it pretty easy to buy a laptimer and set it up at the track so i can time my laps on days i go out to practice? I've never set up and used a lap timer before.

the track has a beacon that you can use, you just have to set the timer
