    I think i found the right section. Hi i'm brand new to motored bikes and i'm about to buy a complete bike that has a broken gas tank. I wanted to know how difficult it is to replace a gas can. and also i wanted to know if you can put a motorcycle gas can with a larger capacity on a motorized bike. And if you cant, places you can get 4+ liter gas cans. thanks. also sorry if i posted in the wrong section i'm brand new to this forum.​

    2 straps held on by 4 nuts keep the tank in place. you undo those 4 nuts and it comes of fairly easily. putting a new one on is the same process in reverse.

    you can put any motorcycle or moped gas tank you want on the bike, but it might require you to drill holes in the frame or come up with some mounting brackets.
