Mark, I also went with the Tour Tank. I fabricated an aluminum bracket that fits over the pillion seat. There is about a 3/8" gap between the pannier doors and the plastic at the side of the seat. This is where my bracket mounts to the bike, I have an additional bracket under the seat that the tank bracket attaches to with two screws each side. I have the Tour Tank in a travel bag with a quick disconnect for the fuel line.
I plumbed mine to function without a pump by tying into the main tank vent line. Using a two way fuel valve I can switch the vent line from atmosphere (normal operation when not using the aux. tank) to the aux. tank. In this position as the main tank draws down the vaccum created in the main tank draws fuel from the aux. tank (which is vented to the atmosphere). The valve is left in this position as long as the aux. tank is on the bike. Simple and works great. -Chuck-
