freaking oneida wants almost 500 for a second gen gas tank. can't find any yellow's on ebay. Would a gsxr tank work with a sv650s second gen? Is yes, does the yellow of a 2004 match up with the yellow of a 2004 sv650s?

thanks

No technical/specific knowledge or first hand experience, but I'd say no a is a good place to start. Different frames, different mounting, different engines underneath, etc etc etc. I'm sure someone could jerry-rig it, but definitely not a plug and play.

First hand experience (as I have both an SV and a GSX-R):

It will NOT fit the SV. The GSX-R frame (and thus the tank) is much wider to make room for the inline-4 engine...

try a salvage yard - ajcyclesalvage.com

you're still going to pay a couple hundred, but depending on the condition of yours and your reasoning behind wanting a new one, you might come out ahead

Is the SV650 tank that much smaller the the SV 1000 tank?, cause I could almost swear that my GSXR 600 tank is the exact same tank as my SV1000 tank.
