Has anyone found a larger gas tank and louder pipes for the 2016 Scout? The OEM tank really limits the riding distance.
Also, looking for a set of strong sounding growling pipes, not ear shattering but with a good rumble. Thanks

I put some basic straight pipes on mine, they were pretty cost effective and have been nice and loud for me ( i think they sound great.) and 49,000 miles on them have no major issue (they have some patina on them) You can get an idea here
I got them from JP Cycles unfortunately they no longer show them there but they were part number 450-413 CHROME UNIV SLIP-ON MUFFLERS ($83 for the pair) . but there are many slip on options out there and they are extremely easy to install and they sound good. .

As far as the tank. I get between 100 and 120 miles a tankful. I have been on long trip and find that stopping every hour to hour and a half for gas and break keeps me from getting to saddle worn. The longest single ride I have done is from west palm beach to Chattanooga Tenn (798 Miles) I think it tool me around 13 hours (I took a lot of back-roads). I have seen some custom tanks but i think they make the bike look awkward. I had thought about attaching and emergency gas bottle but just have never really finding issues with running out of gas.

Enjoy the ride.

Thanks for the tips. Like you I’ve never run out of gas. Thought about putting a 1 gal. Gas can on the luggage rack. That should work well enough for long rides.
Great suggestion on the pipes. Will contact J&P tomorrow to see if they still carry them. Ride safe

There was someone on this forum that did modify existing fuel tanks for increased size - nice job as I recall - but it all comes down to cost. Most problems can be overcome but it's always going to be the price...

Many times over the years when customers have asked if I could get or do something for them (that was not really practical - but could be done) I have responded "I can do almost any thing you want if your pockets are deep enough".

That usually, though not always, brings them back down to earth.
