I would also suggest a narrow radiator too.  Something more of a Ducati style would get a lot of metal out of the wind.  Put that on next year's list.

Earlier R1 tail be a close fit ?

regarding Stainless's comment , i have cut tanks and hammered
cut initially flattened the top of the tank , but it did not realy get my head much lower and i lost some of the area you grip with your knees and elbows
on the other hand hammering works very well , with rubber mallet in hand , sit on the bike in race position and anywhere the tank is intrusive hit it
you end up with a dish for the helmet , another for the belly , and may have indents for elbows , it comes out looking surprisingly smooth. First tank i did barely needed repainting , just paint cracking at the edge of the dish

Make your own tail section, a cardboard template, sheet aluminum and some rivets is all that's needed.

It would be a good idea to race the bike before you change the tank.  It will seem less high and big when the seat is installed.  Some people feel more secure and like the feeling of leaning down against the back of the tank.

If I were you, I would certainly put on a bigger fender/mud guard on the rear wheel. That hugger on there will not stop any salt from getting all over you and everything on the bike. Perhaps you can incorporate the rear fairing to be a fender. Do whatever you can to stop the salt from getting on your electrical connections. Speaking of that, make sure all connections are slathered with silicone grease.

One more thing - since you are running naked, make sure the rear fairing/fender can't be construed as an aerodynamic aid. That is against the rules. So read that part of the rule book carefully.

Finally got rear fairing sorted.  In factory form using factory mounts, the fairing stuck past the rear wheel over an inch and a half.  I fabbed up some mounts that allow me to slide the fairing forward in order to be legal and still allowing me to relocate it back to stock mounts if I lengthen swingarm.  Exhaust is still coming from Italy...has been almost 6 weeks...I hear that italy just resumed import/export operations so hoping to see it soon!   :cheers:
