Here's an OEM 3.25 gal flat-bottom one I bought, but it has a left side petcock.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it (especially if you don't know what you're doing). Most Sportster problems are owner-induced.

smaller tank looks best.
I have to fill before and after work, granted I work 50 miles away.
I believe with all highway riding I get roughly 100 miles, bout 70 if i'm just on the streets

interesting posts.
my POV is the stock bikes look better with peanuts but can look nasty with a king if the paint jobs whack.
the Wide glides or longer fork bikes look better with the king peanut
