Will a 2002 HD Sportster fuel tank fit a 2005 Sportster 883?

This guy has a custom paint job one for sale and says its a 3.5 gallon tank, however specs show a 2002 has 3.30 ga,(i dont think he really knows) and my bike is the smaller tank, the 3.41 ga size. Will it fit, or will it take any modifications? thank you.

All those tanks are called 3.5's, and shape has chaged only slightly since the 60's. you need to compare the bottoms of the tanks to know if it will fit

2002 Suzuki VL1500 Intruder lc fuel tank can i get a larger tank or an extra tank.


Never hear of an after market tank for the intruder, the tank is located under the seat and holds only 3 gallons. You can get aprox 120-130 miles on a tank full.

Is there a larger gas tank I can put on my 2002 xl1200 sportster sport.


some of the aftermarket manufacturers make what they call a "king tank". I don't know how much more fuel that will give you if any at all. that's the biggest tank a Sporty that I've seen. Now, I have seen a set of Fat Boy tanks on a Sportster and they look good. Of course, this would require that you fabricate a custom mount for the tanks.

Deuce Tank


all of the deuce tanks will fit...the only thing you will need to be carefull of is carb vs efi...there are 2 places to accept fuel connection on the bottom side of the tank near the back on the left side...one is for carb models and the other for efi models.
