I keep looking at the panigale R fuel tanks and keep thinking they are a work of art and I would love one on my 899....but lack of funds are preventing me from buying one and I’m not going to be able to afford the outlay any time soon.... I also understand along with the tank you would also need to buy the 1199 subframe and mounting brackets as the 1199 tank mounts differently to the 899.... Has anyone on here successfully managed to modify a 899 tank to replicate the R tank at all? By modify, I mean strip back the paint to bare metal, sand it down to create the brushed effect and then get it resprayed by a professional. I am aware the tanks are steel and therefore the bare metal will start to rust instantly and will require clear coating fairly rapidly. Has anyone at all ventured into this idea at all?
