So they're good too? And how about Sifton?

Today progress: new swingarm (2001) and new rear brake. Fits perfectly.

Today progress: none. Sleeping, drinking, f**ing, smoking. Need to relax too.
However, got some new good deals. Two 4 piston calipers from v-rod for $40 each and left and right fork assemblies. Right is NOS from XR1000, for $39 and left is from crashed FXRS for $50. The FXRS tube is bent but who cares, I only need legs.
They both are 35mm and have evo style mounts for calipers. Just two adapters and I have dual 4 piston brakes on front.

Searching all over the forum, all over the internet, and the info is different everywhere.
The question is, how large are these tanks:
Turtle - 3.9.
Superglide/Roadster/XLT - 3.6 or 3?
Seems there were the small and large versions too?

Upd.
Looks like I've found the info. So the one piece "banana" tanks all were the same 3.6gal except with center dashboard. The only difference is mounts and reserve level.
