Didn't the XS500 also have similar tank to the 75 650? Not sure if there are mounting differences.

You may have a Special tank. That means body filler had to be applied to the badge area and the decals are custom. For me to be correct, the fuel cap is right of center and it fits the XS650 frame. No standard XS650 tank was single petcock. Only the 3 gal Special, 1980 and later.

As soon as I saw the picture of the tank I thought SR500. Look how close the frame cutout in front is to the gas cap. Gave room for the frame oil dipstick.
