Take a look at the link below.  It's for a 5 gallon tank kit.

Strictly in the FWIW department I installed one of those.  Did so with little experience working on V-Rods so didn't know any easy ways or shortcuts.  Someone who is familiar with the bikes or who had done one of these kits before would certainly do it less than half the time it took me.

While the end result may have been worthwhile to the guy that owned the bike the task itself was a righteous pain in the ass.  It was eight hours of a Saturday that was wholly and completely populated by every foul oath I knew and some I made up anew just for that occasion.  The kit did allow for a tidy install when done though and it included all the bits needed to get the job done.
