    Tank swap & possible graphics ideas

    Hello fellow MT09'ers. I'd love to know, if the community knows off hand. Will tanks from previous year FZs easily swap over to the 2018 MT09?

    Far as I can tell, the Yamaha part numbers are different, but that could be just due to color. The 'intake' cowls all seem to be the same across years.

    Here is my girl as she sits now. I'm considering finding a replacement tank, and crafting up some speedblock (along the lines of the XSR900 Heritage) or other retro Yamaha graphics, onto a white, or eggshell base tank color. My 76' XS650 is taunting me to replicate the retro vibe.

    Thanks all for any comment. Safe riding in the meantime!

    Tanks ordered from dealerships come factory painted in my experience, they come painted from .com places like bikebandit too, you just need to figure what part num is the right color
