You can use the original QD. But if you want to make your tank much easier to remove for service, you'll install QD's at the petcocks so you don't need to remove the crossover line. I also recommend mounting the fuel pump to the engine mount near it's stock location. Then you won't need to disconnect the fuel pump either. On my bike, which is fuel injected, I've removed the fuel pump and eliminated both the fuel gauge and horn. I can now remove my tank in under 20 seconds. This makes servicing a breeze...
