Tank extension have you had one?

I'm looking around for a tank extension, have you had any experiences with them? Would be nice to hear any real world experiences.

On another note, how is the carbottcomposites quality lately anyone had any bits sent from them?

Thanks

I Ride: 2015 R, 1199 Tricolore, '12 MTS Pikes Peak
I just put the one shown here on:

Moto Works | Magical Racing Parts

Really nice carbon...good fit...sticks to the tank with double-sided tape (exterior...the tough stuff)...done a few days at the track with it...so far so good. Does give the knees more to grip. It comes from Japan, took a few weeks. The only beeyatch was laying Tank Grip on it...across the seam. Needed to add a little bead of adhesive around the edge but it (the Tank Grip) still wants to come up. It's still on there though....

Mat

Magical Racing does some good work. I had/have their stuff on my Hypermotard and RC51.

Thanks, I was looking for something that would hold me back a lot further and so wouldn't work with a stock seat.

I just ordered one out of Poland carboncomposites it arrives in a few days ill update then under heavy braking after a couple races and fatigue I can not hold myself back as easily and accasionally slip forward I don’t like the shape of the tank and my knees don’t exactly lock into place perfectly hoping it will make riding easier

Thanks mate,
Shit that's cheap if it's the style I'm thinking, will you need to mod a seat for it?

I meant to ask you what happened to Mike in STK1000? What's he doing now?
He deserves to be having a good ride I would think.

Im just using race glass , so a die grinder will make anything fit . They do carbon as well.

Yeah, Mike is now GREEN (Kawasaki) and racing a series in Spain . At least he is still racing in Europe, real shame he couldnt have been where Rinaldi is , as he was upstaging him at the finish last year.

Fitted the extension today , pretty easy. Cant comment if it will mate up with oem seat or not . Makes the tank more like the 1098 which I loved.
