Would anyone be interested in !!!!

Hi guys I've been in contact with a guy who thinks he can make a carbon fibre tank cover that u simply put over ur oem tank giving u the carbon tank look I will poss be in two pieces ( left and right ) and but up together in middle of tank

In principle it would be like the Honda cbr 1000 RR tank cover



So before I go ahead with this is here any interest in this cover idea

Thanks Guys

Sounds interesting, but it really depends on finish and price. It would need to look top notch when done and not be out of most people's price range (sub 500 I would guess). The butting up together in the middle sounds a little suspect though......But interesting all the same!
Keep us posted !

I will do mate the guys only mentions butting together in middle as the shape of the tank would be difficult to put on and off in one piece but will will see

if he can do it that well, he should just take the extra steps to make a full carbon tank instead of just a cover. I think that product would catch a lot more attention with this crowd who are generally interested in shedding weight not adding it for the sake of carbon look.

I know what u r saying fella its just a cost thing for most people and carbon tanks are very hard to get hold of plus I've known a few guys with full carbon tanks and they all ways have problems

The cost doesn't bother me I just don't want the hassle of little leaks ect ect

No worries Woodster. The main thing is to line the tank or get it lined, not shooting down your project mate, all for a good cause.
