Is this a ‘79 special tank ? Got offset tank lid and dual petcocks, have matching side covers ( which need decals ) don’t believe it ever came in yellow though.

Yeah, looks like a special. If I'm not mistaken, the '78 and '79 both had the dual petcocks.
 
Yes it look a bit smaller than the standard tanks, but then again I have no special tanks to compare to, otherwise the tank mount all look like the standard I have

If the shoe fits.... ;)
Fwiw, the rear mount looks 650. Seems to me the rear mount was different on the 400's I've had.
'course, that been a few days.
 
The rear mount is def xs650 and so are the front mount. Width of the tank fit XS frame and sits correctly - the decals I’m unsure about as this all came with other XS650 parts. Tank is clean inside and paint is fresh- so maybe my next XS will be yellow :)
