Have never tried it, but the frames are completly different and the backbone of the frame runs the length of the tank.

Just guessing, I'd say no due to the frames not being the same.

Anything will fit with the appropriate amount of monetary displacement.

Your best bet would be to use a '08 FLH 6 gal tank as that's the last year before the new frame revision.

Even then it may not fit.

According to H-D, even the '08 will not retrofit.  Of course, with judicious applications of cutting torches and welding equipment, most anything can be made to fit.

If I'm good about staying hydrated while in the wind I have to pee more often than six gallons would last.  So it's not a worry :huepfenlol2: .

X2...running out of gas is the least of my worries.  Finding gas stations to stop and pee at is more of a concern.

Stations, trees, high grass; any port in a storm sometimes.

Best to buy an aftermarket 6 gallon tank that's made to fit. there are a few companies out there making  them.

I don't think I've ridden 5 gallons without stopping. Got close several times but was more than happy to climb off the bike and take a short walk.
