500 tanks are short, 650 tanks are longer, and Trident tanks are longer still.

You can fit a 500 tank on a 650, but it will leave a gap between the seat & tank.

I've not tried fitting a 650 tank to a 500, nor have I tried installing a Bonnie tank on a Trident. I've not tried a 500 / Trident swap fit either way.

A Trident tank will mount on a 650, but will interfere with the seat nose; you have to mod the nose of the seat pan & foam, or use a different seat.
