Throttle Addiction. No mid tunnels in stock but a frisco mount and a narrow Wassell - 2.5 - 2.375 inches wide. Snagged the narrow one recently, it's a beaut.

Or you know, get a tank style you want, have someone custom modify it to fit your bike. Not everything has to be bolt on, especially something like a gas tank.

most of those replica tanks (except a few) are all made my the same company that stamps them out, so the specs are going to be the same no matter what vendor or company you buy them from.

Almost all of those tanks are made to fit earlier style frames with smaller backbones etc.

If you want a wassel style tank to fit over the big backbone on your newer bike buy one cut the tunner out and make a new tunnel for it
it wouldnt be that hard to do just take you a little time
you can shape a tunnel from sheetmetal against your backbone without any specialty tools
same goes for cutting the old tunnel out.
line everything up and make some good referance marks and bring it to a local welding shop to have them weld it up for you (if you can not weld)
I dont think your gonna find a bolt on and go sized tank for what you have or want to do

If I'm not mistaken .......your bike is EFI and will need the fuel pump mounted in it anyway. So custom built tank is the only option anyway......unless I'm missing something?
