It depends on what year and model HD has.

I had a 1.5" on my 2011 TG and it was no less accurate with the tank lift than without it. I also was able to put a full 6 gallons in it.

On the 14-up Touring models the gas gauge is actually accurate...amazing, finally...and it is not affected by a 1.5 or 2" tank lifts, can put just as much in with or without the tank lift.

I actually got about a 150 mile ride in yesterday. Filled up with gauge a hair over 1/4 tank and got about 4.2 gallons in her. That wasn't forcing, rocking or waiting for the air to escape. I usually pack it in but was trying to get home before I got wet, again....


Rain suits are of little use when you don't put them back on the trike!

We have quite a few Customers that have installed a tank lift on their FW.

When Keystone was down for a visit we put one on his Freewheeler.

Here's a pic of his FW next to my TG...both have 1.5" tank lifts with the Deluxe Option-
