Gas tank interchange?

It's often hard to cross reference gas tank part #'s because sometimes simply a different paint color will cause the parts fiche to say it won't work on a certain year.

Our '92 project has a pin hole leak in the TOP of the gas tank, of all places. Looking at eBay, it looks like some of the early tanks have some tubes at the rear that don't look quite the same. What about gas cap interchange? Petcock? Fuel sender?

What year(s) will work on a '92? Do the caps, sender, etc., all interchange?

They all work. You can put any year tank on any year bike. The only difference is the emissions vent. Not a big deal.

True. The early tanks had venting in the cap. Later tanks vented at the lower end, and some, California emission's restrictions, had two at the end. Just plug the right emission's tube.
