Default Venturing into making my own "enzo racing subtanks"

hey eveyrone, i was looking into getting one of those enzo racing subtank systems, butt....the'yre like $350, so i was reading into how they work and i realised that its probably simple enough to build myself! soo, my plan so far is to take 6 inches of 1.75" diameter by .03125 thick wall brass tubing, tap the ends, machine end caps out of aluminum stock with a schrader valve in the bottom cap, and use brake hose on the top cap running into the fork opposite the bleeder cap (installation instructions from Enzo racing call for a 7mm hole, countersunk 4mm deep with a 9mm for an o-ring trentch, i figure that if this all doesnt work out i can plug the hole in the cap instead of buying new fork caps because the bleeder screws wont fit.) my only problems are i dont know what to use as a fittings and hoses to run from the forks to the subtanks, and how to make a valve to meter the airflow for adjustability. i was thinking maybe use a screw style petcock for, say a tractor or lawnmower gastank. so what does everybody think? any input is appreciated!

Check out www.thumpertalk.com. I believe theres all KINDS of subtank designs that have been either tried or dreamt up. It might give you the answers you seek.lol Ive got the Too Tech subtank and it's only one tank, mounted high, so that you dont have to drain it.

Definetely check out TT, I've seen quite a few threads over there of people making their own subtanks.

Brass weighs a ton. You'll want aluminum all around.
