This one looks like it would fit the bill:
QB Carbon Fibre 21Lt Fuel Tank HONDA VTR1000 SP-2

But I think an Al SBK tank from Beater or HRC is still the way to go! :rockon

Stunna

Good luck with that...

Been there done that & got the T-shirt, but I never did find a suitable tank that would mount up the way I thought it should especially for the money...

It doesn't look too bad, was the fit complete shit?

I learned my lesson years ago with buying cheap carbon for my R1. There is a reason why cheap shit is cheap.

Oh, and holy moly with the aluminum beater tank, $2100!!! I could buy another bike for that. I guess if you gotta have it, you gotta have it. I wonder why they don't have the endurance tank with the dual inlets like the Qb carbon model, that would be nice to have (purely for looks of course)

Yup the alignment is off which causes stress areas which of course start to crack and it never gets any better after that...

They look better than their previous stuff I will give them that, very few pinholes can be see when holding the part up to the light, but it's still cheap crap.

There was a carbon tank and fairings on Ebay.co.uk, also check Ebay.ne(holland) they have some nice stuff out of Italy, remember over there it's a VTR SP1/2 RC51, stick that in the search engine and enjoy.
I'm not sure if they are allowed to sell second hand parts on ebay.

I have a carbon kevlar clutch cover up for swap if your interested, brand new, it arrived yesterday from Europe.:)

Yoyodyne and opp racing both sell carbon fiber tanks.

I don't know the fit and quality, but the are both well known in racing for supplying parts and body work.
