I have a Velocity 50
My clunk not always is touching the bottom of the tank... any sugestions? What can I add in order to give it more weight?

Maybe a more flexible fuel line would help.

I've always used standard fuel tubing "the blueish clear" with the tan foam on the fuel magnet. Never had any issues.

What line and clunk are you using?

I were using the original until it breaks. I installed it with a regular tube but it is not so flexible...

What about using a header tank?

I don't prefer a header tank.. plus if your having issues with the main tank a header tank is not going to fix it.
Get a fuel magnet and try to find a more flexible line.

You may wanna try KS Kinkless Fuel Pickup Tube Set, a product from KS, Japan.

Several length types available. Ask the seller about it before buying. And a bubbleless weight (bubbleless clunk) is also recommended.
