one other thing was that when i bought mine i had to pay 10% more for the matte finish,i was told by the Australian distributer that this was because it was more work in detailing the finish to make it look good as opposed to the gloss.

Are they much lighter?
What did you do with yours, paint and leave a bit of CF exposed?

Its unbelievable how light, when i picked it up i thought it was a joke,like picking up a cardboard cut out, but i bought it more because i'm replacing everything with carbon and going for the full matte carbon look,the red tank would have looked a bit shity,the original tank is ally and quite a beautiful tank but its red.

I bought a gloss one from the USA and there was no price difference from the supplier.

Hahaha he's also busy AF.
I just went and looked at mine but it does not look like that. The surface is smooth across the join.

That's great! Thanks Brad. Any chance you can post a similar picture so I can send it to them?

I believe I was one of the first to get a tank from them (early 2015) and was the unfortunate recipient of the first set of 1299 body pieces (complete disaster). The tank I have to say was excellent in both appearance and mechanically. Tank has close to 18k miles on it and it's been bulletproof. I bought a second tank late 2016. Same situation. No issue. The finish on the CDT stuff is very good (normally). The fit at times is a completely different story. The issue at CDT seems to be that QC doesn't give 2 shits about anything but the finish and getting things out the door. CDT has a bunch of OEM biz and that's where the effort is focused. With the tank I know "just send it back" sounds great but the wait time for a replacement is somewhat of a bitch depending on the circumstances. Functionally, I'm sure it's fine. For 400 bucks, I could live with it. For 2k plus, yea I'd want a new tank. You should have seen the first fairing stay they sent me. You would feel good about your tank.
Thanks from youngR and GunMoto
