The tanks with 2 vent hoses ARE CA models, but the tank will still work. CA models have elaborate evap cannister systems (which I promptly removed) and both hoses connect to it. Any Vulcan 750 tank will work on any other Vulcan 750, CA model or not. Just connect hoses to the 2 fittings, and run them down below the bike somewhere, and don't connect the other ends to anything. Be aware that one of the hoses is actually an overflow, and if you fill the tank all the way up to the very top, some gas will come out of that hose. I can't remember which hose is which. You can get away with plugging that one, but a lot of people have tank venting problems with the Vulcan, which I believe are mainly caused by that little rubber grommet under the gas cap. Leaving the other hose open gives you an unobstructed vent directly into the tank. You just need to be careful about spilling gas under the bike, in front of the rear tire, then taking off and having the rear tire slide out from under you. I'm always super careful at gas stations anyway, there always seems to be gas and oil on the concrete in front of the pumps.
