If you end up getting a badge of this style that will fit the new tank curvature (such as the one made for the 01-07 bonnevilles), it will be a super easy and quick install, that will also be removable without any permanent damage to your paint. Cut the heads off the screws (leaving a small portion of the shaft, but not enough that it will contact the tank, use a bit of silicone or epoxy to glue the screws into the screw holes to maintain the look. Make sure you don't use so much that it squishes out around the screw head. Let that set, then use some 3m double-sided adhesive tape strips (the same thing that most automotive and motorcycle badges are affixed with from the factory) on the back of the badge, clean the spot on your tank with rubbing alcohol, let the alcohol dry, affix your badge. If you use good quality, automotive-grade double-sided tape (such as 3m), the badge will be very secure. Then, you can always change your mind, take it off (carefully), remove any tape left behind with alcohol (actually, it usually comes off pretty easily by rubbing your thumb across it with a bit of pressure), and you will be back to a perfectly original tank.
