Your saying that 09 specifically, or the 04+ generation would happen to fit (even tho some are carb and FI? i dont quite understand)

04 and up sportys are the same, the difference is carb or fi. there is a small plate you can buy or make it yourself to fit the fi tank where the pump went and use it for carb bike. otherwise it is a direct bolt on.

No, not in my posession yet im trying to see what my options are as finding potential bikes (some come with a tank for example) but have the rest of the specs i want.

Just curious what will and wont fit. Thanks for the tip about the plate that allows FI / carb tanks to inter-change

if your looking sporty, go 04 and up (bigger, rubber mount), 03 and below are smaller(rigid = numb hands) and a whole different bike, 04 and up is the way to go.

yeah, i have my eye/heart set on an 04, but i only want a carb so im limited to what? a year or two before they went FI? and i cant justify spending 5k+ on any used sportie, so im stuck between a rock and a hard place on this purchase.

plus add in all the potential bikes for sale having 21" wheels (i only want the smaller plain 6 spoke or w/e rim/wheel) or pink gas tanks for their wifes first bike, or funky mods, etc. and i've got more and more of a compounding problem.

5k on a used sporty? I picked up my 07 FI for just over 4k....there are several on CL in the 4k range....scour other cities and you'll see they are a dime a dozen.

Just out of curiosity....why do you want carb'd over FI?

carb has a diff sound imo. the nostalgia of a harley to me is a carb bike with retro styling. lots of versatility with the carb as far as tuning goes. (by hand, dont need expensive electronics and computer setups to make changes)
