TX500 teardrop tank on XS500
« on: January 19, 2015, 11:08:21 PM »
Anyone know if the rounded TX500 tanks fit up ok on the XS500 (E model). From photos it looks like the rear mounts are different and would need to be added. How would the front fit up?
Thanks!

Straight swap no problem. Youll just st need the rubber that wraps around the neck of the frame.

Thinking ab putting a tx tank on my 76 xs500  no problems mounting as I have a welder tools etc, but would I need the cap/lock/etc? Or could I use my old setup off of the xs? I'm finding tons of tanks without the gas cap for pretty cheap, also is there some kind of generic non locking or plug style cap I could use instead?
