Street Twin - Fuel Tank Swap

I'm wondering if it would be an easy swap to put the larger T100/T120 Fuel Tank on the Street Twin?

Anyone here know?

Your bike looks fantastic! Thanks for sharing the info and pic. I haven't bought one yet, and won't until this is confirmed to work on the Street Twin. 3.8 gallons is still a bit low for me, but I'd accept it. 3.2 is a total no go. Your results are very encouraging though.

Street Twin/Cup/Scrambler/T100/Bobber all share the same tank, so you can freely swap between all of those. @TriRocket3 would have to share what crazy stuff they might have had to do.

T-100 has the T-120 tank....3.8 US gallons.

Street Twin has 3.2 US gallons.

Bobber has 2.4 US gallons.

Great point there.

Was it a simple, straight over swap, without any extras or modifications, or was more work and things needing to be changed involved?

might be listed wrong, because visually it looks identical to what's on the Twin/Cup/Scrambler/T100 Also for sure the T100 shares tanks with the Cup/Scrambler/Twin. There's been people in the groups I'm on and one I run on facebook that have been swapping tanks from one to another.

Here's a Street Twin with a T100 tank.
