Question Tank Compatibilty??

Hey I Want To Buy A Tank Since Mine Leaks (1990) Every Ad Says 86-06 That The Tanks Are Interchangeable, Yet The Local Dealer Said That I Would Have To Buy A New One Since They Changed Every Couple Years And That It Probably Wont Fit, Could Ya Fill Me In?:blam:

hummm, from what i have seen so far, many parts are interchangeable from all the years. other than paint jobs, it should be the same or very similar. IMHO he is just trying to sell ya on his tank.

yeah....lol i've found ebay to be my best friend. Kawasaki would rather sell you a new bike then the parts, messes up their calculations on how many parts to make. check out the price of a new rear end, that ought to give u a heart attack lol.

yeah :P make sure you're looking at that fine print. sometimes you can find someone parting one out and you can request parts. i've found that works well with my jeep that i have

There was a little change, about 2000 I think they added a vent line to the bottom under the seat. No big deal, might be off on the year, There is also a Calofornia tank, I beleve it has 2 vent lines, still no big deal

I have a tank from a CA model with two vent lines on my VN700 ('85)

I still have not got it up and running yet, but supposedly if you cap off the (left?) line and run a breather hose from the right line you are good to go. (or it could be the other way around....it's too darn early)
