I am going for the old school bobber look (but want to keep the '03 paint) so I have new tins headed my way. I found a '94 XL tank on Ebay for dirt cheap, now I'm just wondering if it will be a direct bolt-on on my '03?

Thanks a lot!

First off, welcome to the forum!! I think that a 94 tank should bolt right up. I think that the tank I got for my bike was good for like 88-03 or something like that.

Evo's ran 86-03. I THINK the tanks are all the same.

Cheers,

Yeah, I'm pretty sure 94 thru 03 are the same.

Great to hear! The only thing I'm worried about is which side the petcock is on. I was looking at the Paughco website and it looks like in '94 they were on the right side, however mine is on the left... Guess I'll just have to wait and see when it arrives. Thanks for the welcome and the feedback!

Ride hard!

If it is on the right side, hopefully the tank will set up high enough for the petcock to clear the hamcan. Or maybe it is in front of the hamcan.

Is it a peanut tank or the larger 3.25gal?
The previous owner of my 94 upgraded to the larger tank, and the petcock is on the left...

I got a 94 w/ a peanut tank. The petcock is on the right side. It's flush up against the tank and above the carb. SHouldn't be a problem w/ the Hamcan unless you got huge hands.

Right on, I don't have ginormous hands so hopefully I'll be alright. Thanks for the help fellas... I'll let you know how it turns out.
