    A few weeks ago, I picked up a new tank from an indy and had it painted. Now that I'm ready to put the fuel pump and fuel pick up in, I noticed that the two tanks are different. I never noticed before because when I bought the tank, Because it was already primed and taped up, I didnt bother removing the tape to make sure they were the same. I figured all EFI tanks were the same.

    By looking at the pic can someone figure out what year/model tank this is from ??

    I am thinking that I might have to get a new fuel pump and everything else to match the new tank and pray that it works with the 08 bike/harness/ecu.. =(...

    Here is a pic of the New Tank

    And here is a pic of my 08 Night Train Tank

    from the picture the first one looks like the inside of my tank (2007 FXST) on mine everything (regulator,filter,fuel pump) is attached to the top plate and I don't know if the tabs on the inside of the tank in second pic would interfere or not.

    I am not sure what year or model the first tank is from. The 2nd one is from my 08 FXSTB Night Train.

    I did a bit of searching and it seems as if the same EFI tank was used from 95-07 and then changed to a different style in 08-10.

    My biggest concern is the electrical stuff. Is everything going to work correctly if I use an 07- Older model pump assembly on and 08 bike ?
