    VFR750 TANK...

    I am in the middle of gathering parts for the f2/monster conversion and was wondering if anyone knew if the VFR tank fits similar to that of the f2 tank? I didn't want to purchase one if it was going to look awkward or not fit right. Here is a link to one of the tanks for sale.

    well the front and rear tabs look similar to the F-tanks, but even those need modifying to work. mainly, i would try to figure out how the bottom front edge of the tank lines up with the hawk frame. you should want it to be close to parallel. also, width should be highly considered...

      Well, i guess that will be hard to do w/o having the tank on hand. Thanks for the reply.

        Viffer tanks fit, if I remember correctly something Lenac told me once. Steve Lenac would know - he's a longtime Lister at www.hawkgt.com , his email is bigboy11 at sigmaweb dot net I think.

          I think I have a Viffer tank and It won't work without some welding. Big hole in the bottow where the fuel pump goes.

            If you're still interested in the VFR tank here's what I did with the VFR tank and Monster seat mod. Pics are further down.

            I have since restored my bike to stock but still have the tank and seat. Anyone interested?

                  Do they just bolt on or do you have to do any subframe mods? I'm definitely interested depending on what it takes to put them on the bike.
