The street glide frame uses a single square tube backbone where the warrior has 2 tubes which makes it much wider. You'd need to cut up and remake the entire underside of the streetglide tank to fit.

That is the "problem" with the Warrior tank having the 2 frame tubes widening out and being secured on the outside of the frame.

Anything is possible but is it worth the money.

Talked to one of my bodyshop guys about it said being it's metal he can dollop the tank to fit over the frame. of course would give up about a gallon of gas but it is a 7.2 gallon tank. As much as I love my warrior I hate the double back bone. I thought about the Stryker tank but it's not as wide underneath as ours.

The Achilles heel of the warrior is the gas tank. Trust me we all dream of having a larger tank. The 100 miles between fill ups suxs. If the sg tank is cheap enough to be expendable I say give it your best shot and let us know. There's going to come a point in time where these tanks are going to become extinct and alternatives will be needed.

I wish the Stryker tank would fit our bikes too. seems to be the closest to frame fitment.

If there was a way of re modelling the reserve tank similar to what is on the VRod might be a better way to go. I know it’s probably easier said than done, but just putting it out there.

Yep then could turbo the bike and use the area where the tank used to be for a nice inter cooler set up

There are some harley tanks that are a double tank with a hose that rins from one to the other. One of these tanks could probably be made to fit the warrior easy enough but you may have to have a custom center console that fits over the gap between the two tanks made as the gap would be wider on the warrior.
