Racing Tank End

Just got the racing tank end from japan webike.net. Install was a breeze. I think it goes well with the tyga seat kit. What do you think? Sorry for the crappy mobile pic and please look beyond the unpainted seat cowl and ugly exhaust clamp. Rest assured I will deal with these very soon. LoL!

Here's the link to the product: Magical Racing : Tank end [W-411-3424]

Ok, so I'm new and not really even sure what I'm looking at... but, ****, I LIKE IT!

I haven't been into the fender eliminator kits because I didn't dislike the fender design--but this looks AWESOME! And, I'm not a seat cowl person, but there's something very smooth in the styling/lines with this one... WOW! You hit a grand slam!

Looks really nice and really gives it a race bike look for sure. I'm new to bikes, let alone racing them so what does the tank end do? I'm guessing it has to do with being able to grip the tank better with your knees for control?? Looks like it might make tucking harder though(well if you have a big belly like me! LOL).

The product description states.. "to allow for better grip when riding aggressively". I still have to put that statement to the test. Lol!
I didn't find tucking a problem, does that mean I have a small belly?

I'm not sure my opinion. When I first looked at the "After", I thought, "ahhh naw", but when I looked back to the "before" I'm not sure if I like the original shape better.

Conundrum.

It makes me sick that it's hard to distinguish,
An honest leader who preaches a cause,
That's not made and not based,
On the profit they'll receive from telling the world.

What line divides you from the seeders,
Who sow without growing believers,
You point and you judge,
Forgetting that their faith is molded by your lead.

Is that just a bit you place over your tank? How solid does it feel? And yea, how does it mount?

I kinda like it. But if you are doing all these visual mods, go the distance and remove those fork reflectors lol
