Can I convert my 03 to the external fuel pump from the later model?

I have a guy local that has the tank from an 07 and I want to use that but there not set up for an internal pump.

The price on the tank is really good.

It's from an R model and I am working on converting my C to a custom bagger and want to use the larger R model tank in the build since I am relocating the Speedometer to a fairing mount to get it off the bars and the R tank holds more fuel and looks better to me.

X'n and I did an in depth write-up years ago. It appears to have disappeared. I had included all the part #s and how to do it. It was easy. Maybe you can search me or X'n and find it

Thanks guys!

The tank deal did not happen.
So am shelving this idea for right now.

I found out why that tank was so cheap when I got there to buy it. Had about a pound of bondo on it and it was cracking in one spot. It looked like a scratch in the picks and he said it had some scratches on it. So I thought it was just a scratch. That tank had been crushed and pulled, filled and painted. And it was done rather poorly.

So I passed on it.
