Re: Still opinion from me...        

I'm thinking something maybe like an SV650 looking front fender. With the cowl, I tried to keep about the same angle of the top of the gas tank, but it bowed up a bit after it was screwed into the seat pan. I think part of the problem is that it flares out towards the end, rather than coming more to a point. My battery randomly died this week, so I just bought a new X5L-BS, same as stock but 1" shorter. It only poked through the seat pan about an inch, so maybe I'll play around with the height and angle of it.

For the tank I have a few ideas. One is puting in some cutouts for clipons, and seeing how the lower section pans out. The other is roughing the tank into a smaller size and making a whole fiberglass cover to give it a new shape. And last is finding another tank that doesn't fit too badly.
