What I did is I took a 2001 tank, cut the bottom off and made a new tunnel for it. I then added 2.25" along with the new bottom, moved the bung and petcock to get maximum use out of it. It went from 3.2 to almost five gallons. I road it to sturgis in '06, and didn't want to runout of gas on the way there. Plus this was the only way I could have the parallel frame to tank without my handle bars hitting the tank.

can you tell me a bit more about the fender you used? From what I have been reading, if you cut the struts up a little bit, you can move then to the outer side of the supports and add a wider fender. What size fender is this and did you have to make any modifications to the struts?
