Speedmaster tank upgrade

So, I want to put the bigger Speedmaster tank on my bobber. Does anyone know if it has to be a newer tank or will any year work?
I’d rather not buy one and get it only to find out it doesn’t plug and play like some who have changed theirs.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

I have the 2018 Speedmaster tank on my 2018 Bobber (and the headlight) as far as I know it has to be a 2018 or newer.

Hope that helps.

Cheerio,

Roy

In the US , the Speedmaster has been out for better than a decade. Carbed and FI. But to be clear , as Roy has mentioned , only the "new" Speedmaster will fit the Bobber.

So far behind , I think I'm in first place.

Yes, 2018 Speedmaster tank fits the Bobber, just comes back a little further. Bought a used Speedmaster tank and put my fuel pump, fuel guage sender and cap from the bobber on it. Just two wire connections and fuel line connection. The most difficult part was to reach in and unclip the fuel sender.

I put on a 2018 speed master tank. Increased capacity by over 30 percent. Had to move bars a little to ensure clearance. The mechanics forgot to adjust float arm to ensure better capacity so fuel light comes on prematurely an easy fix. Expensive tank but worth it

I must say that for me the upgrade to the Speedmaster tank has been one of my favorite mods.

Along with also adding the Speedmaster headlight it has changing the look of the bike significantly and in a way I really like. Saying that, I feel for a stripped down 'bobber' look the original tank is excellent and looks stunning, I just can't help 'tweaking' the bike for my version of perfection..

The extra fuel capacity is great and if you live in remote areas (I do) it's really quite important.

Whatever your choice or preference both the Speedmaster and Bobber are truly beautiful bikes. For me? I'm pleased I have created a hybrid (aka SpeedBobber) and love the way she is coming along.

Good luck and let us know how you get on.

Cheerio,

Roy

If anyone is interested, there is a slightly used 2017 Speedmaster tank on Ebay (US). 😏
