Anyone help!! I'm considering purchasing a long range fuel tank for the 8, expensive i know but cheaper than buying another bike as well as the 8- probably......can anyone point me in the right direction?

I've been looking after one for ages and asked around here too.
Would be handy on the Cannonball Bike Runs and trackdays as well since I ride the bike to local trackdays. Hauling extra fuell with ya is a pain in the arse.
The aaarghceee is quite thirsty on track.
So far no such luck and don't recall anyone posting links either like tony said.

There are a few team involved in endurance racing that use RC8's but so far found none willing to sell or make a endurance tank for me.

If you find or know one post it here.
Sure there are others after one as well.

How much was it and is there any dyno evidence of what it does on an 8?
mines an r cost just over a grand including quickshifter and dyno set up just waiting for the email with it on was 159bhp on the day top bhp was not what i was after is was better throttle response making it more rideable and so much quicker on track.
