If you’re local, this company was the actual supplier to many of the shops you guys are talking about. Cheaper and that’s what they do.

I've never weighed the contents of the box, suffice it to say it is full. I share your concern about the hinges and avoid opening the swing arm as much as possible with the extra 10 gallons of fuel on top, in addition I added the delron slides/supports shown in the picture below. The block does a great job of supporting the weight in the closed position and the slide makes closing the loaded assembly a lot easier.



Regarding feeling the additional weight, this is what caused me to upgrade to adjustable Fox shocks in the rear. Now anytime I carry extra weight in the back (fuel, minibike, heavily loaded trailer) I dial up the shocks to compensate. Great modification!

AeroTanks-we specialize in auxiliary and replacement fuel tanks.

Jake is the contact at Aero, Aero supplies Agile with the 20 and 30 gallon tanks that you see on the Aero website. Note also that Aero supplies the 14 gallon tank that Agile installs (and that is installed on my van), John at Agile told me at the time that Aero only supplies this tank to Agile.
