What's your question? Anyone here that can tell me how to convert a 6 gallon FI tank to the earlier carbed type. I believe the FI tanks are 6 gallons where as mine is 5. Thanks

  1. The six gallon tanks (the first year was '08) mount to the frame differently than your tank mounts. They were gearing up for the frame change in '09, so I don't think you can do it easily. There would be so much involved,(connecting your fuel gauge, changing your seat to an '08 seat, but harley does make an adapter to remove the check valve and install a petcock. I think they used it on the '04 or '05 models). Really a lot of work for an extra gallon. By: Guest on: 6-14-2012


  2. Harley Doesnt make an adapter but Drag Specialties and Pingel make a FI to Carb Bung of course you will also need a petcock. I have done this swap on my FXR. Apparently you are not putting this on your 06 because that would be FI also Am I correct? BTW the FI quick connect unscrews. By: Guest on: 7-15-2012

  5. I also have a 06, but it is a road king. The tanks are somewhat different, but the basics are pretty much the same. You have an option of taking the top of the tank out and cutting the un-necessary parts out such as the fuel pump, but being careful not to cut anything to do with your float etc. to maintain your fuel gauge. You can through away your fuse to the fuel pump. You won't need it anymore. Pengle does have a good unit but pricey. Check with your Harley dealer, they do have the neccessary pieces to make the the change to a petcock. I also have found these pieces in major parts catalogs pretty reasonable. I too am changing mine to carburated and done a lot of research on this. there are a lot of options here, it just depends on what the outcome you want and how much money you want to spend. Also, if you are intending to keep your Fi, this won't work because you have to keep the fuel pump for the injection system. I suggest that you research this very thouroughly before you begin.
