That's the one that I have on mine. Good tank. Nice and light. My tabs were hacked off and re-welded though. The previous owner said that the ones that came on it, were weak and not worth a damn.

Thats not neccesarily true. Aluminum will begin to crack from vibration if mounted directly to metal. The combination of the weight of the fuel sloshing around and the vibration of some of these bigger bikes will create stress cracks and cause them to tear/break. Thats why alot of drag tanks are mounted via rubber isolaters, just like radiators.
