I got my airbox from them and it was top notch. I have seen a MV Corse carbon tank and it is very nice.

You will need to seal it with this

Ed, Donsy, and Dave recommend it.

It will all ways leak mate you will need to treat these cf tanks over and over and over you will be thinking about it all the time not worth the hassle

Do as I did for peice of mind mate get a pen metal tank carbon fibre laminated looks like a full carbon tank no matter how much u look at it and u will never ever have to worry about leaks or sealing it again and again and if the worse thing happens u have a off the cf tank will shatter like a peice of glass cracking in all sorts of places if I have a off ( touch wood ) all ill need to is repair tank and cf layer on the damage area















If your interested in this process let me know ill get a price from my guy who did it

I'll let you know if mine starts pissing fuel. But to this point it has not.
It is an MV Corse tank with the KBS coating from Andrew's link.

It ain't what you ride, it's the way you ride it.
