Will a Ninja 650 tank fit on a '08 Versys?

Will a Ninja 650 tank fit on a '08 Versys?

If so, are there certain year Ninja tanks that fit better than others?

Will the fuel gage function work after making the transfer?

Thanks.

Yes, that would be why I am considering the Ninja tank. I am looking to do away with the V fairings, headlight, etc.

Yep, I've seen several of those threads. It seems to me to be much easier to not fabricate those special hand made covers in order to hide the metal flanges on the sides of the V tank, and just buy a different tank. I don't think I'll miss the extra gallon of fuel either.

Seems to me that jdrocks mentioned in one of his 'build' threads that the Ninja fuel-pump fitting under the tank is in a different direction....
