2009 and up gas tank

My buddy just bought a 2008 RG anniversry,he wants to change the color but keep the old paint,he has a tank off of a 2011 RG,does anybody know if the 2011 tank will fit on a 2008 RG.

2012 RG Vivid Black,contrast Anarchy wheels,SE air cleaner,cobra tuner,Thunderheader ,diamond cut heads and clys,Fueling Reaper 574 cams,this is just a starting point.

I want to say that the 6 gal are slightly longer and wider. I would say that since he has the tank, why not take off the current one and see if the 2011 fits. Worst case is that it won't and he is out 15 minutes.

Not sure, but I think the 09 and up tanks have the hook for the seat made onto the tank. And 08 and earlier it was on the seat.

I recently took the tank off my 08' following the DYI posted for 09' and up. The attachments were exactly the same as far as bolts, vent tubes and electrical connections and process, but that does not mean something may not be different - btw the 08' are 6 gallon just as 09' and later.

08' FLTR - Customized!!! (Check my Albums)
05' SuperGlideCustom - sold

08 and up are all the same tanks, even the 14s are the same tank, all interchangeable.
