That's what I'll do... raise the top section but re-using the original plastic tank is a nono.
It will never work. The two halves won't stay bonded for too long that's why I'm starting from scratch with metal...

Plastic welding my friend bonds the two parent materials together as good as mig welding steel.
My plastics welding guy had made many pieces for me, including new battery tray and modifying the seat base, never an issue.

He has also modified the plastic tank on a KTM 950 desert racer for greater capacity, that bike gets more abuse than you'll ever throw at a GRiSO. No problems either.

The GRiSO is what it is , the tank is built for style as well as for fuel ....if your worried about range then carry fuel like Tolleo9 suggested and be done with....I do not get this

My mate Peter has just bought this

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Part of our plan for the lead up to our retirement is to do a lap or figure of eight of Oz. He was tossing up between the Sport and a V7-II. As it was he got an insane deal on the Sport but if it had gone the other way it wouldn't of mattered, I would of just taken the Mana rather than the GRiSO.

Sure the GRiSO has a small tank but really, on a lap of Oz I'll just make sure I carry a couple of fuel bladders for the long, empty, bits in the North West. Even the Sport with nine litres more fuel might be stretching it a bit up there but it's all really fairly easily dealt with.

For most of my 'everyday' riding I never worry about fuel. Sometimes if I'm a bit off the beaten track I may have to put low octane petrol in it but it still runs OK. I haven't run out yet.

Does anyone know what the tank is made of? Polyamide? Nylon? Something else?

Same colour scheme as mine, never seen another on the road yet here other than a black one. Well happy with it, mine had only 600 miles on it with a 2 grand saving on new, previous owner had found it too heavy apparently, must have been Mr Bean Rolling Eyes

Get a Breva, put the Sport bits on - voila!

I agree^^^^^^^^^.
That reminds me... I have a riding budy that sold his Breva (07) and I'm supposed to pick up the passenger seat cover for my GRiSO.
I made a solo seat and I'll try to fit this thing on it.
