DL parts on an SV

Because of my height and riding style, I would like to adapt the 5.8 gal. DL tank to the SV-650, 2003 and later, is this possible?
Any ideas for increasing the gas tank volume on the SV?
Thanks, 50+

Unless you're into fabrication, probably not

The front mounts for the DL and SV tanks are significantly different. Also, the DL's tank has lobes in the front that might interfere with the SV's handlebars.

If you were into fabrication, you could start with a damaged SV tank, cut it lengthwise and add a middle part.

Of course, saying it is one thing. Doing it another.

Smile Thank you for your reply +

Do you know a worthwhile fabricator? I don't plan on any off-road use, and travel light, so the many features the DL has to offer are not a big deal for me (except the larger gas tank). Thanks again.
