954 tank on 929

I have a 929, about to buy a 954 tank from Glory452... I am well aware the 954 subframe is way different than the 929's along with the different rear tank mount... however, I'm bound to make it happen.

The 954 tank is probably the best looking sport bike tank out there to date. I'm not a big fan of the plastic covered fuel cells.

Anyway, has anyone done it before? Just wondering if I can use the 954 fuel pump and of course any other info on the swap... I didn't see any threads on it here (or online).

Might look something like this (bottom pic). Obviously I'd think of something like mesh grate for the big gap by the bottom of the tank... and of course take advantage of the bigger intake relief on the 954 tank and create new intake and covers

You'll probably want a 954 airbox as well to fit under the tank.

So is a lot of things people do to their motorcycles, but we do it anyway.

If the bike isn't braking properly, you don't start by rebuilding the engine.

Re: 954 tank on 929

It's all good. Most people can't really tell... but I really like the sharp lines of the 954 tank (top of the tank) compared to the rounded bubble shape of the 929 tank.

I have the 1kr tail on my bike which is angular and has sharp lines so the tank will match it well... eventually I'm going to do something crazy useless to make my fairings and headlight have sharp angles too... but I want to use the 929 headlight just so people don't think it's a regular 1kr... I know lots of talk, so little time

Re: 954 tank on 929

If that's all, then you'd probably be better off hacking two tanks up and coming out with something individual. That way the airbox, frame, intakes, etc. won't need messing with.
