2009 - 2012 gas tank

Hey guys, I just bought a new tank to replace my crashed tank for my 2012. I haven't looked at my old tank in a very long time (been stored at a friends house for a while). I don't remember that the old tank looked EXACTLY like this and am wondering g if you could take a look and tell me if I'm crazy and am just remembering wrong. I don't remember 3 pressure vents, only two. I dont remember where the fuel pump goes to be raised, I remember it being flush with the tank. I don't remember the Gas cap area only having three mounting points, but five. am I just remembering wrong?

Oh man I almost swooped that tank off of eBay myself haha. It looks like it's a California model tank. I have a cali model myself and it has 3 vent hoses. I have a breather hose connected to the line with the blue sticker, I capped the red sticker line with a vacuum cap, and I ran another breather hose off of the line on left side of tank. Bear in mind that was part of me removing the smog canister and doing the kleen air mod.
I'm sure the gas cap will mount up correctly as I have 5 Allen head screws around my gas cap as well.

Does the tank function the same way? I realize this is an Uber stupid question but I just don't know...

It won't function any different because you don't have all the other smog cap hooked up to it. Just cap that middle line (should have a red sticker) and run breather hoses off of the other two. Maybe someone else can verify how the standard models are setup but I've had my bike running like this without issue for at least 3 years.
