    Didn’t realize the size changed through out the years. Any info is useful just trying to find something that will fit so no preferences

    Without trying to be a dick, but maybe you should look at some FXR's, one of the dashes has a gas gage and a gas cap in the center, it's kinda skinny and others have a large speedo in the dash, gas caps are on the sides just like your tank. Have you considered a cats eye or one like that??

    Split tanks have plenty of dash choices from blank covers to custom gauges.

    I'm not seeing an intelligent or artistic point to running an FXR dash on split tanks. It is wildly unlikely to cover the spit at the rear even if it fits the front. That means some sort of abortion cover plate. Unless there is some deeply compelling emotional reason to screw with using an FXR dash (which were designed for different tank contours) I'd go with something actually styled to fit the split tanks.

    FXR tanks have a different PROFILE than split tanks too. I like the classic split tank look better and the FXR dash profile (bottom AND side view) would look wetoddid on top of them.

    I suggest thinking this through. If you like FXR tanks, why not buy a repop and toss the split tanks? If you like split tanks, they have some quite attractive (cat's eye for example) dash options.

    I'm not the OP - just curious what style FXR dash he has? Might make a difference...

    I had a cats eye on it with a leather strip but since rebuilding it the flow of the bike changed and was looking for something elseClick image for larger version.
