Is the tank ring on weestrom same as sv650???

Does anyone know if the tank ring on a sv650 is the same as the weestrom. Found this link where the guy fabricated his own tank bag with ring using the cortech one on motorcycle superstore but it only list the sv650 part and no weestrom. Here's the link if you guys are interested in the write up. Hope someone knows.

You can get tank rings for V-Stroms. Call and ask if you can't find out for sure on the web site. I had a Bags-Connection tank ring from Twisted Throttle on my '05 Wee.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s
See https://www.stromtrooper.com/general-...nicknames.html

The 2012 ring on the DL650 differs from what went before.

Nevermind. After looking at various sites I realized it is not the same as the sv650. It is the same as the 1999 bandit and hayabusa though. Think I might order one of these and try it out on my weestrom tankbag. Sure saves a lot of money over the swmotech ones I've been wanting. Nice upgrade for this interested.

Yeah. Saw they went from a 7 bolt to the 5 bolt. Sucks for those that upgraded.

Saw those ones and have been wanting one. Just didn't want to pay especially since I have a tank bag I really like. Think I'll try the one from motorcycle superstore and mod my bag to use it.
