2006 RSV Gas Tank


Recommended Posts

I bought a 2006 RSV I am newbie to this site but have enjoyed all the help and support on the site. My question is my Betsy has abiut a 5 gallon gas tank no star emblems. I am thinking it should have a six gallon tank. Is there amod or something where the tank is swapped. Just curious like thebike the way it is.

I think the tank on the RSV is 6 gals capacity but you can only put in a bit more than 5 because of the way the tank is made. Some have put holes in the filler neck to allow air to escape and allow for a fuller tank. Lots of guys in here have taken the tank emblems off just as a personal look preference.

Do a search on punching the filler neck. Once done you can put in the full six gallons. After punching don't fill it to the brim and park in warm sunlight. Or you will discover how well the vent pukes out excess fuel.

Thanks for the info. It has the 130 front tire and set back handle bars. Rides Great and I am loving it. Think I will get out for a ride today. If it ain't broke ain't gonna fix it. Just Ride It!

The RSTD's have a 5 gallon tank, and I also think they have one in Black Cherry, only a different year... if I remember correctly. Tried checking the history section, but I didn't see a black cherry listed in TD colors???
