Has anyone switched their tank to a HD sportster. If so what did you do with the coolant cap? Were there any other major or unforseen mods other than the speedo?

pp,, watt bike model are you cutting on? is it carb'd or FI'd?

hardley sporturd tanx and knock offs are diff size capacity and gravity fed fuel bungs or FI pumps imbedded. muey dollares for the hardley brand stuff. cheap chineez knock offs are just that.. cheap.

I changed my stock 2.2gal FI tank to a 3.3gal FI tank. unpainted was $6bills from hardley.. but that was on my 48 sporturd.

diff is 1hour of riding vs 1.5hrs ride time.

its going on a 99 800 thats carbed, turning it into a rat bobber. I have found used tanks with bung for under $100 all day so as long as it doesnt f with the radiator I think it looks bad azz.

I put the radiator cap under the tank on the left side. To make this work I unbolted the thermo and turned it 180 degrees and reinstalled the bolts, cut and reinstalled the hoses. Never had any issues and have done this with about 5 of these Vulcans.
