Between the China PAUGHCO tanks which I have heard they are not that good from others there is a guy on Ebay that searches for certain year tanks and paints them to your design and color but they are $500 - $700.
Yikes!
I am thinking of going to a 4.5 from my 3.2 King Peanut on my Roadster when I get some scratch together. Good grief! I have had my Roadster for 4 months and I have 3 major mods on it.
This is worse than owning a Jeep Wrangler! LOL!

Would anyone happen to have a photo or two of what the rear XLS and FX tank mounting kit looks like actually mounted on the bike? I already know what the parts look like sealed in plastic retail packaging.
I'm basically trying to see exactly how and where it all mounts up with the gas tank off the bike. I'm assuming the Roadster's tank requires use of all the parts that come with the mounting kit such as the rubber bumpers and brackets that limit side to side tank movement.
