I'm new here and I have done some searches I have a 2001 750 and I'm going to start my converstion to 05 fairings I'm pretty good on the tail converstion found that thread and I know I can do that the upper fairing kinda not sure on that one I know I need the 05 stay braket and have to make it fit not to sure about my air ducts and mounting the speedo but my question is about the tank I want to put a 05 tank on it not sure that it will work I have seen some pics of my bike with 05 fairings and it looks like some pep change the tank but any info would be great thanks
Well I picked up a used tank in good shape last night so today I am going to see what is going to take to make it fit since nobody has any input on it I will keep up to date post on what I run into on the fit

Re: 2001 750 converstion to 05 fairings
There's pics of a red 05 tank swapped onto a 01-03 somewhere about 2 yrs back on these forums.(don't remember)
They did the fairings too. As for the tank it looked like ass, it left a hideous void in bottom back corner even if you fabbed up some plastic filler pieces like a 04-05 has.
Well the tank fits but as you said leaves some big gaps in the sides where u can see the throttle linkages I'm going to try to weld some thin sheet metal to feel gaps the bondo and sand I'll get some pics
