  • different fuel tanks on the R*

    hi all
    just wondering if anyone has ever put a smaller tank on their roadie custom build? i've seen some good stuff on here over time, most people have opted for a sportster or king sportster tank, is there anything else that will go on with minimal F## ing about? i know id have to part with stock speedo but that's no biggie, its the tunnel width perhaps that is the killer
    anyway sing out if you know of anything..

    Sporty tanks have mounting tabs on the front, so you would have to cut off the Yamaha mounts in front. On the back if you wanted to keep the bolt arrangement just make a new mount, the new sportsters with efi have so much wiring it's on the bottom of the frame tube also. My tank is off right now I can measure how wide the frame tube is.

      Check out the tank on Lucky's Black Diamond Build. I believe it's a Mustang. So many have done the Sportster tank. Be original.

        When I do mine I'm going to try a Yamaha 70's 500 or 650 tank.
