The service I have received has been the best I have ever had from any motorcycle store and possibly in general even though the tank takes 4 months to make , I was kept in the loop the whole time ( this is rare) I was told when it would ship to Australia and it arrived in 4 days from leaving Japan , amazingly boxed and padded with air pillows ! The tank required sanding down as I was painting the whole tank , my painter commented how beautiful it was ( a work of art he said) and is saving up for one for his 999s . I am so happy the bike now has the perfect flowing lines . So to all the team involved in making this happen thanks so much for everything you did for me. Oh and the weight difference is incredible too more capacity and 1/2 the weight. Thanks.

The quality of this fuel tank is second-to-none, it really is a work of art, superbly formed and shaped, a perfect fit, and is worth the wait! Trust me, you’ll love it!

The tank is a great addition to the bike, i’m really pleased with it. The quality of the workmanship is excellent and the extra range that it gives is very useful. Thank you again.

I plan to leave the tank in its natural state with only clear coat to protect the finish. The tank looks beautiful a true work of art. Thank you.

Firstly, this tank arrived beautifully packaged, double boxed and with ample foam to avoid damage during shipment.
The tank itself is an amazing piece of work, unfortunately I neglected to take any shots before it was painted but you can find some photos of the bare tank on the Beater web site. Functionally this tank is the same as stock, you will find no surprises or modifications necessary to make this tank fit to your bike.
Aesthetically, this tank does differ from the original design, instead of the tank sitting flush along both sides of the frame, it is missing the ‘dimples’ leaving some parts of the battery/fuse box exposed. Initially when I mounted it, I wasn’t pleased with the new look of the bike, but it has grown on me.
The only issue I encountered with this tank was with the hole for the drain plug. The sealing area got painted and I could not get the drain plug to seal without Loctite 577. This obviously had nothing to do with Beater, but just something to be aware of.
Overall, very happy with the tank and if I ever have issues with another stock tank this will be my first stop.
