Can you verify?

Hey, looking to verify if this 1 Gallon saddlebag gas can will fit a 2017 RGU? JP Cycles says no, I wanted to check with the true experts.

Mine fits the bags of my 2015. Did they change the bags since then? If all else fails, contact the manufacturer of the can, which appears to be Reda-Can.

I think it is made to fit 93-13 bags, but since the 14 and up bags are a little bigger it will probably fit fine.

It fits but you have to do a bit of trimming on the cap plug. About a 1/4 of an inch. It does not effect anything. It fits without trimming but will scratch the saddlebag lid. I bought it for my 97 and reused on my 15.

Wanted to update my own post. I can verify, the tank fits perfect in the 17 RGU saddlebag.

I can confirm that they fit in my 17 RGU bags, carried two to Shark Week last summer!

I may have had to trim due to having liners installed

Yep it fits. I glued some foam insulation down in the bottom of the bad to make it sit flatter. it tends to clunk around a little sitting on the hum for the support rail.
